Lives and works in Copenhagen
Ene Bissenbakker is a visual artist who works within a broad range of media, though mainly paper. Paper is a familiar subject known to us from early childhood drawings, from important official documents, from shady brown paper bags, from the Bibles, the Quran and pizza boxes. Human interaction is as unbearably fragile as paper, wet or dry, and is always at the center of Bissenbakker's artistic search process.
