Lise Klitten 1954, scenographer, costume designer and curator born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. She's been an autodidact artist since she started her first creative business which allowed her to acquire artistic work in costume design and clothing.
Since 1994, Lise Klitten has primarily worked in the field of dance and performance as an avant-garde costume designer who uses unconventional materials such as sailcloth, machine felt, as well as horse and human hair. She made costume designs for 26 performances before embarking on actual scenographic assignments at the turn of the millennium.
Lise Klitten has had exhibitions at the Prague Quadrennial and WSD13, as well as a grand solo exhibition in Round Tower in Copenhagen. She has received multiple scholarships due to her outstanding results.
In addition to this, she has made short films and taught at Danish National School of Performing Art and at foreign Academies.
Klitten’s work in Performance Contemporary Art consists of striking, yet simple solutions, which are as aforementioned often not afraid to cross the boundaries of normality. Klitten is always looking for a way to tell a visual story through the costumes. A core philosophy however, is that leaving out key parts of the tale is paramount to giving the spectator a unique opportunity to fill in the blanks by creating their own opinions.
