Simone Steenberg is a Danish artist, based in Copenhagen and London, working with photography, performance, sculpture, film and fashion.
My current research is focused on climate change and environmental-awareness, our waste culture and society, recycled fashion and materials. I create sculptures from ‘leftovers’, which interact with the nature and the human body. I explore the ‘unwanted’ and question, who decides what is wanted or not?
I see fashion as a means to explore ideas of identity and self-expression and want to break the boundaries between art and fashion. My work celebrates and investigates women, the body and its form. It’s an exploration of intimate play, through the lens and subject; what is unveiled between the art, artist and audience. I aim to challenge conventional norms of social behaviour and beauty ideals, and present an alternate reality. Through my work and fascination with women I offer a different perspective onto female sexuality, which is full of resilience, kindness, humour and seductiveness.
Clients and publications include; Vogue Italia, The LOVE magazine, Dazed Digital, i-D Magazine, Refinery29, Puss Puss Magazine, DANSK, The Fader and musicians Rina Sawayama and Mabel.
