Miriam Kongstad (DK, 1991) is an artist based in Berlin and Copenhagen. Originally educated as a choreographer from Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT), she subsequently completed an MFA in visual arts from the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam in 2020.

Materialized as images, performance, sculpture, text, and sound, Kongstad’s practice is anchored in explorations of embodiment, identity, and social codes. Through depictions of cultural and social structures, she analyses the interplay between bodies and society. By articulating often ambivalent and complex aspects of life, such as health, sexuality, pain, and desire, the human body is explored as a metaphysical, organic, social, and spiritual entity - an expanded experience of being flesh.

Miriam Kongstad has exhibited and performed internationally, including Glyptoteket (DK), Statens Museum For Kunst (DK), Centre Pompidou (FR), Bergen Kunsthall (NO), Het Hem (NL), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK), KØS - Museum of Art in Public Spaces (DK), Kunsthal Aarhus (DK), MMAG Foundation (JO), Fundación Botín (ES), Hamburger Bahnhof (DE), PPL (USA) and Sophiensaele (DE). In 2022 and 2023, Kongstad’s works were acquired by the National Gallery of Denmark, the New Carlsberg Foundation, and the Danish Arts Foundation, among others.
