The artistic practice of Vilhelm Christensen (1984, NO) moves freely between sculpture, installation, intervention, architecture, sound and moving images, working in the context of spaces, places, and their material narratives. Trained in both fine art and architecture, he works across the boundaries of visual and applied art, object and space, individual and collective works.

He has exhibited individually and collectively at institutions such as The National Museum Norway, Henie Onstad Art Center, Oslo Architecture Triennale, Munch Museum, Kunsthall Oslo, Oslo Pilot, Galleri 0047 and Galleri Rom. As an architect and designer, he has collaborated with the Munch Museum, Galleri F15, Kunstnernes Hus, OsloBiennalen and Galleri Haaken, to name a few. In 2014 he was awarded the Anders Jahre Prize for Young Artists. He is included in the collection of the National Museum in Norway. Previously he has worked in Rem Koolhaas’ architecture and research studio OMA/AMO in Rotterdam and was co-founder of the architectural practice Superunion Architects from 2011 to 2016.

He holds a Master of Fine Arts from Malmö Art Academy and a Master of Architecture from Oslo School of Architecture, as well as studies at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. From fall 2022 he is participating in the OPI Lab at Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, an advanced post-master program for professional artists focusing on art in public space.
