Maria Zahle
(b. 1979, Denmark)

Maria Zahle received her Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools, London and BA in Fine Art (Hons) from The Slade School of Fine Art, London. Zahle's practice is interdisciplinary, and she works with sculpture, textile, collage, performance, and poetry. Zahle insists on the body and the process of making as unavoidable prerequisites of her works – and as decisive for the images and imprints we all leave on the world. In recent years, sculptural weaving and plant dyeing have become a central part of her practice.
Zahle’s exhibitions include group shows at Fraktal Ventesal, Skørping (2024) as well as at Skovgaard Museet, Viborg (2024). Zahle has recently exhibited with solo shows at Alice Folker Gallery, Copenhagen (2023); Arcade, Bruxelles (2022); Rønnebæksholm, Næstved (2022); Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2021); Arcade, London (2018) and Sophienholm, Kongens Lyngby (2018). Her duo and group exhibitions include shows at Den Frie Udstillingsbygning, Copenhagen (2023); Violet Art Space, Antwerpen (2022); Hillerød Library, Hillerød (2021); Frise Kunsthal, Hamburg (2021); CCA, Andratx (2019) and Kettles Yard, Cambridge (2018). 
Zahle has created public commissions to three pedestrian tunnels in Copenhagen (2016-2019), to the Department of Energy Technology at Aalborg University, Aalborg (2016), and to the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester (2014). Three works from her latest solo exhibition have been purchased by the New Carlsberg Foundation.
