Stine Bidstrup is a Danish artist, educator and curator whose practice investigates optical phenomena, interpreting past social and architectural utopian ideologies, and reanimating them through sculpture, installation and video. Her work explores the power of context, point of view, and our perception in constructing a visual understanding of the world around us, in which the human eye and mind are ceaselessly engaged in a host of negotiations and determinations.
Bidstrup has taught at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design on Bornholm since 2009, and was a visiting lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. Together with fellow Copenhagen-based glass artists she founded the collaborative studio Luftkraft Glass Studio in 2007, and has exhibited nationally and world-wide for the past 15 years. In 2018 Bidstrup joined the exhibition council at the Glass Museum Ebeltoft, and in 2019 she was awarded the 3-year work grant from The Danish Art’s Foundation.
