00 Photo portrait Astrid Krogh

Astrid Krogh is working at the intersection between art, architecture and design. Born in Denmark in 1968, Krogh graduated from the textile faculty at The Danish Design School in 1997 and established her own studio the following year, where she started using optical fibers to create woven textiles, thereby weaving with light itself. Krogh’s point of departure from conventional textile design was not merely her fascination with light but also her at traction to shape-morphing objects and shifting colorways, “I use light as both a material and a technology”, Krogh explains. Few artists speak a refined language as fluently as Astrid Krogh, who uses light to describe aspects of Nature that words simply cannot. Her vocabulary is nuanced by sensory experiences, which are articulated through a lexicon of color and light. Astrid Krogh’s works are included in important museum collections, such as the Designmuseum Danmark and the 21C Museum International Contemporary Art Foundation, USA. She has carried out monumental light installations and site-specific commissions for private and public collections, such as the 21C Museum International Contemporary Art Foundation, Cincinnati, USA; Longchamp Flagship store, Paris, France; Danish University Center, Beijing, China; Maersk building, Copenhagen, Denmark; and Danish Parliament, Copenhagen, Denmark. Krogh’s works are published in important books about contemporary textiles, architecture and design and the artist has won several prizes, including the Thorvald Bindesboell Medal, the Inga & Ejvind Kold Christensen Prize, the Annual Honorary Grant of the National Bank of Denmark, the Finn Juhl Architecture Prize and the CODA Award.
