Sidsel Christensen (Norway) works across the moving image, live-events and performance-based lectures to explore different possibilities of transforming perceived realities. She uses the camera as a social tool for intimate encounters, capturing an idealised ‘space’ between the artist and the subject/audience: one that challenges subjectivity and opens up a space of potential, power struggle and friction.

Recent exhibitions/performances includes The Object Of The Attack (David Roberts Art Foundation, 2009), Vilma Gold, and the Royal Academy (as part of the Helmut Newton Ladies Night, hosted by Spartacus Chetwynd).

Born in 1978 in Norway, Sidsel lives and works in London.
