Astrid Kruse Jensen is one of the most established visual artists in Denmark, well known for her dreamy photographs, where time seems dissolved and undefined. The observer is lead onto a journey of different atmospheres and memories, where the story is open for interpretation.
In series Disappering into the past and Within the Landscape, Astrid Kruse Jensen has utilized an old polaroid camera and expired film to deliberately let go of the technical circumstances. The chemical process in the expired film creates a tinted spectrum of yellow, green and red, and leave a specific shimmer of light in the photographs.
Astrid Kruse Jensen was born 1975 and is based in Copenhagen. She is educated at The Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and exhibited her works all over the world. Her works are represented in several collections such as The National Museum for Photography, Denmark, The George Eastman House, Rochester, USA, Artotheque de Caen, France, Manchester City Gallery, Great Britain and at AROS, Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark. In February 2015 Astrid Kruse Jensen had a solo exhibition at Wetterling Gallery and she has previously exhibited at Sven-Harrys konstmuseum.
