Photography

Kruse Jensen, Astrid (1975)

Astrid Kruse Jensen conceives images that echo childhood dreams or nightmares, images that confuse what is real and what is fantasy. The Danish photographer privileges stark and dynamic contrasts to highlight her bright tones and to better oppose darkness from glow. Poetic and intriguing, her pictures leave viewers wondering, unsure of what they are looking at, scenes infused with nostalgia and mystery: ‘souvenirs are the conducting thread of this project that questions the role of the photographer as a keeper of the memory […] For this work, I decided to create souvenirs that have never really existed […] The images create a kind of spatial interaction between past and present, a dislocation of time and memory.’ When a human figure appears in Astrid Kruse Jensen’s photographs, it is to confound the viewer even more with its ghostly appearance.
