Ester Fleckner Biography

The Danish artist Ester Fleckner (*1983 in Denmark) explores language and materials in ways that preserve traces of the process, and privilege the repetitive labour of trial and error. Working from queer epistemology, Fleckner seeks chaotic and intuitive ways of knowing, always morphing along the way towards no particular endpoint. Using primarily the serial woodcut print as well as castings as mediums Fleckner employs an abstract aesthetic to counteract normative tendencies.
