AMALIE SMITH
b. 1985

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

I graduated my MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2015. My graduation piece was a video installation considering the phenomenology of digital touch interfaces and it can be viewed 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 books since I graduated from The Danish Academy of Creative Writing in 2009. My seventh book Et hjerte i alt will be published on April 20th 2017. My third book 'I civil' (in English: 'Recollection') has been translated into English by Paul Russell Garrett, an excerpt can be found in the 2015 winter issue of the American online journal Asymptote. The full translation is currently looking for a publisher.

I recently did a text poster in English, you can find it here. Jon Arnfred wrote something about my book The Next 5000 Days in English here and I have one text translated into English here, and two poems translated into English, Spanish and Portoguese, you cand find them here.
