Anne Katrine Senstad is a multidisciplinary Norwegian artist based in Oslo and New York. She was educated at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Social Research in New York.

Senstad works in the intersections of installation art, photography, video, site and time specific work, text based works and land art. Her work is concerned with the sensorial aesthetics, the perceptive and transformative, the transcendental ideas of art and philosophical practice, and social-political awareness. Since the mid 90’s her work has been highly concerned with the perceptive and spatial elements of light, sound and color, and a foundation for her explorations in the experiential and experimental. Her sources lie in literature, philosophy, technology and the phenomena of ocular perceptions.

Selected exhibitions include Through The Spectrum at Athr Gallery, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia alongside James Turrell, Robert Irwin and Carlos Cruz-Diez, 2018, and He-Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen, China opening December 2018. In 2018 she has shown at Octavia Art Gallery in New Orleans, Trafo Kunsthall, Bærum, The Yard and Airmattress Gallery in New York.
