Biography: Stine Bidstrup

Stine Bidstrup
Name: 
Stine Bidstrup

Stine Bidstrup is a Danish artist whose work explores optical phenomena and interprets ideas about utopian visions through glass sculptures, installation, and video. By using spatial and tactile experiences, she creates works that interject cultural layers of memories and events. “These sculptures pursue an aesthetic based on the complexity and diversity of the crystalline,” explained Bidstrup. “They are about a search for ways to represent a multitude of possible viewpoints and not a single universal one.”

Bidstrup graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006 and has taught nationally and internationally since 2007 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and at several summer programs including Pilchuck Glass School and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. She maintains a studio in Copenhagen, goes to Småland, Sweden, to blow glass, and is represented by Heller Gallery in New York and FUMI Gallery in London.

Bidstrup was selected as one of the 100 artists to be included in New Glass Now, a global survey of contemporary glass, which opened at The Corning Museum of Glass in May 2019.
