Stine Gonsholt (b.1973), is a Norwegian artist based in Skien, Norway. Gonsholt is working within a variety of lens-based media, in parallel with collaborative projects including experimental video, mixed media installations and artist books. She has also produced a series of public commissions.
Gonsholt's projects examines topics related to development processes within an interdisciplinary, global context; Changes within local communities as a consequence of global transformation, is a main point of interest. As of 2017, Gonsholt has developed a landscape project in collaboration with the visual artist Åse Løvgren. The focus of the project is global transitions related to production and technology, how such processes leave their mark on the landscapes and alters our understanding of a place. The project looks for such traces or prints, which are then processed visually and materially. The fascination with how digital production, which is often thought of as immaterial and free-flowing across national borders, also has a material side, is central to the work.
Stine Gonsholt work is shown internationally and acquired by amongst other: The Arts Council Norway, The Norwegian Journalists Association, University of Stavanger and DKS Vestfold and Telemark County.
