Julie Lænkholm (b. 1985) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

Rooted in the ideas and methods inherent to collective learning, investigating techniques and practices traditionally passed down orally from generation to generation, Lænkholm explores a predominantly female-driven history and knowledge which has been forgotten or otherwise actively ignored. Through her practice, she aims to bring these lost narratives back into focus, and place them within a contemporary discourse.
