In her artistic practice Hymoller examine the “embodiment of place” and what constitutes a sense of belonging from an analytical and cultural perspective. She place an emphasis on the aesthetic form, its characteristics, and its role in society. The formation of ideas through materiality and material investigation is a central component of her practice.

In Hymøller’s performative, sculptural, architectural and body-related work, she explore how the use of “feminine” and “masculine” charged shapes, colors, and materials are used to represent and perpetuate cultural values.

Her resent investigation draws parallels between the urban landscape and the beauty industry and its influences on an individual’s body and mind. In the process she investigate shapes, colors, and structures enmeshed in the materiality of the city, comparing these with humanity’s own need and use of cosmetics to appear most beautiful. Fascinated by the different stages of remodeling in cities, she examine whether and how beauty industry aesthetics have similarities to the urban landscape’s renewal processes.

Hymøller have translated this interpretation into a series of installations with performative interventions, sculpture, video, photography, collages and frottage-prints.
