KC Tidemand is an artist and educator, originally from Norway. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and Philosophy from Skidmore College and her Masters in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in NYC in 2015. Tidemand’s artwork deals with the notion of production and expansion, drawing influence from the polarity between reductive and emergent systems; where the former is characterized by its hierarchical networks while the latter is a decentralized web of connectivity. Using these two different systems as a tableau for the work, she plays with the limits of their visual properties and through this, explores how they affect our behavior, through liberation or restriction. Tidemand is a founding member of Art Theory Project; an art collective focused on bringing a contemporary art dialogue to the local communities and schools in NYC. She has shown internationally, including several galleries in Norway and the United States. She is currently living and working in New York City.
