signs and symbols presents MAPS, an ongoing photographic project by artist Nina Mouritzen as part of the galleries artist & allies programming in our project space.
“Maps or mapping is a symbolic depiction emphasizing relationships between elements of space, such as objects, regions, or themes.”
nina mouritzen (b. 1980) is a New York based Danish photographer. She worked as an apprentice for Mary Ellen Mark for several years while simultaneously creating her own projects and debuted with a solo show in 2003 at The Room, NY entitled “In Transit…”. She has since exhibited her work at the National Gallery of Denmark; Chashama, NY; Fort Collins Center for Fine Art Photography; The Bravo Center, Oaxaca; Milk Gallery, NY; and is a longtime collaborator and documentarian for the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Her work straddles fine art and documentary photography with an emphasis on intimate stories in a larger urban cultural and historical context - often engaging in a collaborative and participatory relationship with the subjects involved. Mouritzen’s subject matter and projects are rooted in a passion and curiosity for music, performance art, street life and self-identifying communities.
