(b. 1988, Denmark)
MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts Bard College, New York. May works as a visual artist and combines different media such as sound, sculpture, video, installation, performance, etc. with conceptual rigor, sensitivity and humour and often designs and builds her own instruments. May is inspired by technology, science fiction, feminism and sound theory. The use of sound within a context of visual art is of particular significance, as her work respects the specificity and history of sound.
In recent years, Ragnhild May's work has been shown at e.g. SMK, Overgaden, The New Museum (NYC), Roulette (NYC), Issue Project Room (US), Die Raum (DE), SuperDeluxe (JP), Rønnebæksholm, Astrid Noack's Atelier and Den Frie Udstilling. She has also received the Carl Nielsen Talent Award, and is from 2020-2022 selected by the The Danish Arts Foundation to take part in their career development program ‘The Young Artistic Elite’.
