Silke Riis (she/her) is a Copenhagen-born sculptor and installation artist whose work currently revolves around speculative futures and imagined species.

With her transformative sculptures she hopes to reflect the fragility of ecosystems while offering alternative ideas for the future, and uses the narrative of speculative evolution as an outlet for her own climate anxiety.

Inspired by rainforest plants, fungi and marine invertebrates, as well as mythologies and science fiction, her work often has an otherworldly aesthetic.

She is currently based in The Hague, The Netherlands.



Tactility is a cornerstone in her work,
and you are almost always encouraged to touch it.
