Kirstine Roepstorff

Biography and selected exhibitions
Born in 1972, Kirstine Roepstorff lives and works in Fredericia, Denmark. She graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Roepstorff’s artistic practice consists primarily of mixed media collages pointing out existing power relations, and critically investigating the history and failures of political ideas. By editing and decomposing original materials, 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.
