TORE HALLAS         BIOGRAPHY     CV     WORKS         ︎     ︎     ︎


Visual artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Working within themes of fatness and queerness, and fatness as queerness; religious ontologies and intention; as well as photographic and cinematographic reflection as both theme and method. Primarily with video, photography and text, as well as teaching with a focus on empathetic feedback.

Economic structural and interpersonal oppression, personal narratives, and the intersectionalities of violences and positionalities are undercurrents in his works, along with travelling as both physical displacement and symbolic quest, and the interaction between the world and the othered body and mind.

He holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, is the recipient of the Danish Arts Councils career program ‘The Young Artistic Elite’, as well as the Poul Erik Bech Foundations Art Prize and the 15. Juni Foundations Honorary Art Prize, and has exhibited both nationally and internationally in USA, Sweden, UK, Finland, Germany, Portugal & South Korea.
