BIO

Lotte Fløe Christensen, b. 1979, is a visual artist based in Humlebæk, DK. She holds an MFA from Valand Academy in Gothenburg, SE and a BA in Fine Art Photography from the Glasgow School of Art, SCO.

Her photographic work is conceptual and intuitive. It springs from performative and sculptural actions and deals with existential issues of meaning, loss and longing.

Fløe Christensen exhibits internationally and has received work grants from the Eric Ericsson Foundation and the Danish Arts Foundation, in which collection her work is also represented. In 2017, Schilt Publishing published the monograph ’Constructs’.
