Anne Katrine Senstad




Part of events on ArtRabbit in: New York, Brooklyn, London

Born and raised in Oslo, Anne Senstad is one of Norway’s most accomplished contemporary artists. After completing her undergraduate education in Norway, Senstad relocated to the United States where she pursued her studies at Berkeley, California and the Parson’s School of Design, New York. Continuing the legacy of contemporary color theory and minimalist movements, Senstad achieves an elemental elegance and sophistication in her work. The artist’s preoccupation with light and color serves as an overarching theme that unites her pieces, regardless of medium. In addition to Senstad’s photographic and neon series, the artist has completed monumental site - specific installations throughout the world. In 2009 Senstad created The Sugarcane Labyrinth, a one acre (4000 square meter) agricultural installation in Theirot, Louisiana. Highlighting farming culture as a path towards urban sustainability, the installation introduces the idea of agriculture as a vital part of the urban environmental infrastructure. The Sugarcane Project also serves as a memorial for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Widely acclaimed, Senstad’s work has been exhibited in institutions and art fairs such as the Zendai MoMA, Shanghai; the Ministry of Culture, Monaco; the Nobel Peace Center, Oslo; the Center for Fine Arts, Brussels; the Munch Museum, Oslo; the Contemporary Art Fair, Sao Paolo; ArtBasel Miami; the Milan Contemporary Art Fair; the Eva Peron Museum, Argentina; and the Houston Center for Photography. She has received numerous awards and grants from prestigious institutions worldwide, including the Norwegian Arts Council, the Eva Peron Museum, the Agricultural Land Art Project in Louisiana, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy. In 2007, Senstad participated in a two-person show alongside Dan Flavin at the Bjorn Ressle Gallery in New York.
