Anne Katrine Senstad
Norwegian artist Anne Senstad was educated at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Social Research in New York. Senstad’s practice lies in the multi disciplinary intersections of installation art, photography, video, neon sculpture, immersive installation, landart and site specificity, with a focus on the phenomena of perception and the cognitive system in response to the properties of light, sound and color, as well as her hybridized critical and poetic text based works on dialectics, literature, language and philosophy through use of signage and commercial materials and commodities. Senstad is concerned with sensorial aesthetics, perception and the transformative, - the transcendental ideas of art and philosophical practice. Through advanced in depth research she has examined spatial, topological and scientific phenomena of light, sound and color since the mid 1990’s, a foundation for her explorations in the experiential, participatory and experimental. The inherent lyricism in her work, creates a bridge between psychological elements, materiality and these thematic concerns. In her ongoing field work, she engages in cultural, social and political interactions through active, organic and personal involvement for a wider educational and collaborative platform between diverse ideologies, developing a new folklore and amalgamation between postmodern individualism and internationalism.
