Kirstine Roepstorff

At the westernmost point in Denmark, Kirstine Roepstorff exhibits a sculpture. Here, where the waves hit Blåvandshuk Beach, she shows a work that creates space for reflection on our place in the universe and how we as humans are connected to nature on a microscopic and macroscopic level. The sculpture is inspired by the Fresnel lens in Blåvandshuk Lighthouse and created for the exhibition. 


In her work, Kirstine Roepstorff investigates the boundaries between man's inner and outer worlds and how we as humans are connected to nature, even the universe, around us. Her work takes shape in collages, tapestries, mobiles, sculptures and (total) installations. Kirstine Roepstorff's works, large and small, occupy the space around them and call upon us to be present in the space with the work, to allow ourselves to be absorbed in the sphere that the work unfolds and which directs attention to the world around us.
