Kirstine Roepstorff

'With newspaper cuttings, fabric, photographs, embroidery, glitter, and yarn glued layer-on-layer, Kirstine Roepstorff’s images are every restorer’s nightmare. But the visual universes created by using materials from very different contexts are unusually challenging to explore, as you will find hidden existential discussions in between the many material layers. “Appropria-arrangements” Roepstorff’s preferred media are painting and collage, which she explores in a both innovative and original way. She calls her collages ‘appropria-arrangements’, the works consist of visual materials such as newspapers, books and magazines which the artist puts together in new ways.' (taken from e-flux)
