Idun Baltzersen was born in 1987 in Trondheim, Norway, and now lives in Stockholm. She works experimentally with drawing and printmaking in various forms – on paper, fabric and wood. Her work is often characterized by figurative compositions, where the boundaries between figure and landscape are integrated through collage. She uses the repeating function of printmaking – to produce many images of the same motif – as a way to explore identities and contemporary myths.
Idun Baltzersen studied at the Kunsthøgskolen in Bergen and finished her studies with a master at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design in 2014. Since then she has participated in numerous exhibitions, including Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden (2018 & 2016); Teckningsmuseet, Laholm, Sweden (2018); Uppsala Art Museum, Uppsala, Sweden (2017 & 2014); Moderna Museet, Malmö, Sweden (2015).
