is an artist and research, interested in temporal and relational forms of the image and image-practices.
Drawing inspiration from strategies of montage, while using both analogue film, video, text and display aesthetic elements, her spatial work and performative demonstrations are always effects of lenghty and multifaceted investigative processes: E.g. in the archives of the National Museum of Denmark, at a research station in Greenland or among taxi drivers on Svalbard.
Out of a fundamental dissatisfaction with the representational discourse, and its historical and colonial legacy, la Cour has written the book Geo-Aesthetical Discontent: Svalbard, the Guide and Post-future Essayism - the result of a practice-based artistic PhD project and inquire for methodological reorientation of (linear) storylines towards new constellations between thinking and image, the archive and social processes, authenticity and authorship.
This makes mediation, when understood as an effect of relationality and communal effort across locations (in ideas, practices, places, etc.), a key concern and something which la Cour has explored through live-editing as a performative and situated cinematic expression.
Over the years, la Cour has exhibited internationally but also developed a consistent writing practice, as well as a roleas educator and organizer. In addition, she has an ongoing collaboration with filmmaker Tinne Zenner (since 2018) concerning Denmark's colonial presence in Greenland - past and present.
