Lise Harlev is a Danish artist living in Berlin. She graduated from the Funen Art Academy in 1994-1995, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts 1995-2000 and Städelschule Frankfurt am Main, 1999-2000. Harlev works i.a. with the interplay between subject and object, and is especially known for his graphic work and posters.
Lise Harlev has developed an artistic language that quotes the graphic designs we know especially from the somewhat stereotypical and rigid graphics of public institutions. She works as a kind of sociologist who uses text and images and penetrates paradoxes, double standards and manipulations that seep in from society and that affect us, whether we know it or not.
