Mette Sterre is a multidisciplinary artist. Sterre’s work escapes fixed definitions, incorporating and exceeding performance, installation, digital technologies, body masks and sculpture – potentially expanding its territories without limits.

When interacting with Sterre’s work, the viewer is cast into her mind process, bringing together soft robotics, patterns as narratives and physically disruptive experiences. Her work explores a range of physical, mental, emotional and social aspects through the altering of the body, exploring what more we can be than human.

Sterre’s work aims to give value to the devalued, both aesthetically and conceptually. Creatures seemingly assembled into hybrid and chimeric formulations – partly machines, monsters or nonhumans – are occupying the same space as humans. Thus, Sterre’s creations celebrate our differences, incorporating both fear and ecstasy.

“Let me recuperate
The dance isn’t always the beginning
The drive is never the winning”
