Astrid Gjesing (DK)

Astrid Gjesing (b.1952, Denmark) is a visual artist that treats difficult inter-relational topics like loneliness and lies. Her praxis moves between performance, installation and sound, where the spectator often becomes part of the work. One of her main artistic projects entails embroidery in public spaces. Furthermore, Gjesing has made several installations across Denmark, amongst others at the community centre Omdrejningspunktet at Rundhøj Torv, at Aarhus University, Aarhus, and in several public places at Nørrebro, Copenhagen. She has also exhibited at Museum Ovartaci, Denmark, Nikolaj Kunsthal, Denmark and The Women´s museum, Denmark.
