Nina Saunders was born in Odense, Denmark in 1958 and trained at Central St Martin's, London. The artist creates a series of sculptures which are both funny and quirky, yet at the same time quiet and contemplative, from a range of medium including concrete, leather, textiles and bronze. Recent solo exhibitions include I Heard a Voice in the Midst of the Four Beasts, KUNSTEN - Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg, Denmark (2017); Art and existence - in dialogue with Ernesto Spinelli, Esbjerg Museum of Art, Denmark (2013); and Autumn Flowers, Pallant House Gallery (2009).
Saunders has been involved in exhibitions at the New Art Centre, in the group show domestic (f)utility (2004) and her solo exhibition Autumn Leaves (2005). She is included in many public collections around the world including the Arts Council Collection; the Modern Museum, Stockholm, Sweden; Esbjerg Kunstmuseum, Denmark and the Saatchi Collection, London. She lives and works in London.
