Born in 1972, Kirstine Roepstorff lives and works in Fredericia. She graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Roepstorff’s artistic practice consists primarily of collages that incorporate different media and images, pointing out existing power relations, and critically investigating the history and failures of political ideas. By editing and decomposing the original material, her work generates new contexts that open up spaces for negotiation and new narratives. Roepstorff’s practice is situated in those “in-between” spaces of negotiation.
Selection of exhibitions: Andersen’s Contemporary in Copenhagen (2016); Den Frie in Copenhagen (2015); Kunstverein Göttingen, Germany (2014); Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Kunstmuseum Basel in Switzerland (2010); The National Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo (2010). In recent years, the artist has created several large-scale public art projects, including "The Gong" for Dokk1 in Aarhus (2015) and "Klangfrø" for the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics at the University of Copenhagen (2014).
Her work is included in the permanent collection of Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA; The Saatchi Gallery, London, UK; National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo, NO; The Royal Museum of Fine Art, Copenhagen, DK among others.
