Ditte Lyngkær Pedersen (b. 1977) is an artist, currently living and working in Aarhus, Denmark. She holds an MFA in Visual Art from Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, 2004. Through a range of media, such as video, text, photography, drawing, and object-based installations, Lyngkær Pedersen examines the various ways in which we understand our identity and make sense of our surroundings. Her practice often revisits themes from science and theories of perception. Lyngkær Pedersen has taken part in several international residency programmes and exhibitions. She has furthermore been engaged in a number of long-term collectives and curatorial projects, including The Production Unit, HOMEWORK and the exhibition space rum46 in Aarhus.
