Steinar Christensen CV as pdf-File

Steinar Christensen (1946) is a Norwegian postconseptualist. Christensen is known for his monumental steel sculptures, star installations, international performances and his still-lifes with reference to the Dutch Golden Age art. He has represented Norway at la Biennial di Venice, and his work is included in the collections of the National Gallery, Henie-Onstad Art Centre in Oslo, Oslo Municipality's Art Collections, Bergen Picture Gallery, the Norwegian Cultural Council and South Jutland Art Museum in Denmark. Christensen has worked within a variety of media and with different materials, often in collaboration with experts in specific disciplines.

His star-shaped sculptures were selected to Artscape Nordland decoration in Skutvik Harbor. In 2004, he worked with Jotne Factories to enlarge a Chinese sacrificial table to a 400 kg stainless steel sculpture. In recent years Christensen has developed an advanced still-aesthetic expression, where he includes contemporary elements and anachronisms.

His last major art project was unveiled at Refsnes Gods in June 2009. The Refsnes Frieze was inspired by industrial aesthetics and extensive industrial history in Moss, and it is thorougly documented in the book Steinar Christensens Refsnes-frise written by the art historian Arnt Fredheim. Christensen has been exhibited in renowned galleries in Norway and abroad, and is also known as a professor at Western Norway's Academy of Fine Arts, Konsthøgskolan Valand in Gothenburg, visiting professor at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, as well as professor and dean of the National Art Academy.
