Kirsten Justesen trained in classic sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from which she graduated in 1975.
Her activities comprise a wide range of genres, from body art and performance art to sculpture and installation. Justesen was part of the avant-garde scene of the 1960s, where she became a pioneering figure within the three-dimensional modes of art that incorporate the artist's own body as artistic material. These experiments led her in the direction of the feminist art which challenged traditional value systems during the 1970s. Her later works constitute broader investigations of relationships between body, space, and language.


Kirsten Justesen er uddannet klassisk billedhugger på det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi i 1975.
Hennes aktiviteter er spredt over en bred vifte af genrer fra body art og performance til skulptur og installation. hun har baggrund i 1960’ernes avantgardemiljøer, hvor hun blev en pioner indenfor de tredimensionale kunstformer, der inddrager kunstnerens en krop som materiale. Disse eksperimenter førte hende i retning af den såkaldte feministiske kunst, der i 1970’erne forsøgte at tage livtag med traditionelle værdisystemer. Hendes senere produktion er en bredere undersøgelse af forholdet mellem krop, rum og sprog.
