AMALIE SMITH
b. 1985

I am a writer and visual artist living in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (MFA) in 2015. My graduation piece was a video installation considering the phenomenology of digital touch interfaces. The speak is in English and the videoinstallation can be seen here. I received a travel grant for this work from Annie & Otto Johs. Detlefs' Foundation.

In October 2015 I received the Danish Crown Prince Couple's Rising Star Award. The ceremony and TV-show can be seen here.

I have published six hybrid fiction books in Danish since I graduated from The Danish Academy of Creative Writing in 2009. My seventh book Et hjerte i alt (A Heart in Everything) was published in April 2017. My third book 'I civil' (in English: 'Recollection') has been translated in its entirety into English by Paul Russell Garrett, an excerpt can be found in the 2015 winter issue of the American online journal Asymptote. An excerpt from the novel Marble from 2014 is currently being translated into English by Jennifer Russell. Copies of unpublished translations will be given upon request.

A text poster with a short essay in English concerning the Greek sponge divers of the 19th century and the Antikythera shipwreck can be found here.
