Sofie Hesselholdt (1974) and Vibeke Mejlvang (1976) are the two members of the Copenhagen-based artist group Hesselholdt & Mejlvang, initiated in 1999. 

We work in various materials and media such as installations, sculpture, ceramics, stuffed animals and manipulated ready-mades. 
Our work is focusing on the conditions of human modern life in terms of a social or even political engagement. But far from a dogmatic form it is a complex and elaborating investigation, where the artwork opens for dialog with its environment. By imploding fragments from the visual culture of everyday life into new, revealing and often humorous constellations, we comment on Western values.
