Caroline Thon (born 1986) is a Copenhagen based artist. She is primarily an oil painter, but has also experimented in sculpture and installation. Apart from her artistic practice she has an academic background within biology and art history. Both her artistic work as well as her academic research shows her great interest in the relationship between “human” and “nature” and how art and science exhibition can affect our perception of these concepts.
She is currently employed at the Medical Museion, Copenhagen, as a research assistant and co-curator on the interdisciplinary exhibition Mind the Gut and has prior to that worked at the Danish science center with exhibition development and production as well as research policy and teaching. She has been a guest teacher and workshop facilitator at the art school Kunsthøjskolen i Holbæk.
She has been represented by Le Magasin de Connaisseur (Shanghai), Galleri Hegnhøj & Blume and Lille Lottenborg (Copenhagen).
