Ditte Gantriis works primarily with print making and installation. As a recurring feature in her practice the imagery alternates between abstract and figurative form. Working with stereotypes, commercial gestures and notions of contemporary life she examines how objects, images of objects, words and signs are situated in a web of meaning. This multiplicity of signification draws attention to the question of which aesthetics we surround ourselves with, and what emotions we unconsciously invest in them.
