Kris Sahlholdt (b. 1996) is a Danish interdisciplinary artist who makes sculptural work which is inspired by performative thinking.

The work has strong connections to place and often draws on historical as well as personal references. Weaving links between the artist’s own industrialized reality and a mysterious other world. There is an awareness of materiality in the pieces and often discarded material is being used in an almost loving manner as to give unwanted objects a second chance. Themes such as belonging, identity, family relations, industrial history, personal trauma and mythology are reoccurring in the work and are sometimes explored through the lens of innocence, other times through the lens violence.
