    Light artist and textile designer, Astrid Krogh, was born in Denmark in 1968.  Krogh graduated from the textile faculty of the Danish Design School, and is today recognized as a leading innovator in the intersecting fields of art, textile design, technology, and architectural intervention. Krogh anchors her art to new technologies by weaving optic strands into iridescent tapestries and creating optic fiber and LED sculptures that glow and illuminate in a rainbow of colors. With the subtle changing of patterns and colourways in the pieces, Astrid Krogh’s work creates a momentary pause in a high-speed world, showing that the cutting edge of art and design is not razor sharp, but as sensuous and soft as the subtle illuminations she creates.

    « I like to work with high-tech materials in a low-tech way ».

    Combining her textile design skills with technological know-how and state-of-the-art materials, Astrid Krogh started already by the end of the 1990s with monumental optical fiber weavings for various museum exhibitions and site-specific commissions. Krogh’s point of departure from conventional textile design was not merely her fascination for light, but also her attraction to shape-morphing objects and shifting colourways. « I use light as both a material and a technology », Krogh explains. « The presence of light is an essential component of my work. Light enables my textiles to pulsate, change patterns and create an entire spectrum of ever-changing colourways ».

    Astrid Krogh succeeds in giving light a soft and tactile quality, proposing a highly original and poetic vocabulary based on contemplative perception and sensual color experience. In pieces like the Meadow or the Sky, the work changes into different hues of colors in a very slowly and hardly perceptible way therefore creating a poetic and sensorial experience.

    Astrid Krogh’s works have been shown at various international exhibitions, museums and she has done important site-specific commissions such as the Maersk building, the Danish Parliament and the 21 C Museum in Cincinnati.

    « I begin each commission by travelling to the site to look at existing lighting, the flow of human traffic and the general buzz around it », Krogh says. « I set out to truly integrate work into the space so that it becomes a part of it. Every building has a unique atmosphere; every space has its own soul. My work is born out of feeling, yet, takes shape according to the physical characteristics of the space ».

    Astrid Krogh’s pieces are published in several important books about contemporary textiles, architecture and design and she has won several design prizes, including The Danish Art Foundation in 2006, 2009 et 2011. Krogh won the Thorvald Bindesboell Medal in 2008 and received the Inga & Ejvind Kold Christensen Prize. In 2015, Astrid Krogh was attributed the Annual Honorary Grant of the National Bank of Denmark and in 2016, she received the Finn Juhl Architecture Prize.
