Melanie Kitti’s (b. 1986, SE) writing and visual arts practice stems from a place of disruption, fragmentation, discontinuity. Her acclaimed literary debut, Halvt urne, halvt gral (Half Urn, Half Grail), published in 2022, collects succinct if fleeting notes on a family—and consequently a mental state—about to dissolve. Employing DIY-fresco techniques or figuration on pillows or upholstery, her painterly practice uses materials impossible to preserve, creating a frailty always at risk of imploding. For her grand solo show at O—Overgaden, Kitti will create a series of new works while the kunsthalle’s historic function as a printing house spurs hand-printed flyers, claiming space for Kitti’s anti-racist public voice to transgress the institutional framework.
