Anne-Birthe Hove


Artist and activist

1951-2012

Anne-Birthe Hove was one of Greenland's most renowned and respected contemporary artists. Until her death in August 2012, she was a very active artist who worked in many formats and was known for her graphic works and decorations.

Anne-Birthe Hove’s decorations can be seen in several places in Greenland and Denmark. At Ilimmarfik we can enjoy her evocative lighting installation in the atrium and follow her call to listen (tusarnaarneq) in the auditorium. The work – the brain and the heart too (qarasaq - uummat mininnagu) can also be seen at Ilimmarfik.

Anne-Birthe Hove was widely used as an illustrator and was represented in POSTs stamp series "Contemporary Art".

Anne-Birthe Hove was a member of the artist group "KIMIK", where she was president for 10 years from 1997. She was a member of the Danish artist association "Koloristerne" for many years. She was represented at exhibitions in several countries through more than 30 years.

Anne-Birthe Hove was one of many enthusiasts who worked tirelessly for the establishment of a Greenlandic national gallery. Shortly before her death, she was awarded the Greenland Self Rule Culture Award along with musician Ole Kristiansen.
