Born in 1984 - Sweden
Kristoffer Axén, born 1984 in Stockholm/Sweden, studied fine art photography at the International Center of Photography in New York between 2008-2009, a city in which he lived and worked in until 2013. Earlier studies also includes motion picture and photography at the Nacka School of Media in Stockholm.
He was selected as a part of the New York based 2011 Tierney Fellowship and was also selected as a part of the 2010 reGeneration2: Tomorrow’s Photographers Today traveling exhibiton, which has been exhibitied in over a dozen countries worldwide. Recently he was selected as a group of twelve emerging artists for the France based Festival Circulations at the art center Cent Quatre in Paris.
He currently lives and works in Stockholm/Sweden.
Kristoffer Axén currently works on developing his world into even more subjective directions with the use of collage-like processes and additional texture - both in the post-production stage and in the printing process. The aim is still to extract the underlying, subjective, reality into images carrying an untold story, balancing the borderline between reality and fiction, with allusions to painters like Mamma Andersson and Michael Borremans, and filmmakers like Béla Tarr and David Lynch.
Kristoffer Axén’s editioned photographs (often largescale from 40in up to 60in on the longest side) have been exhibited internationlly in solo shows in New York (Munch Gallery) and Copenhagen (Galerie Pi), in a recent two-person show in Stockholm (Gallery Domeij) and in numerous group shows around the world, notably at Liljevalchs Spring Show in Stockholm, at Aperture Gallery in New York and at Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland. He is is part of many private and public collections such as the ICP collection, Michaelis School of Fine Arts and MONA and he has been published in articles and selections from magazines such as the British Journal of Photography, The New York Times and Vogue Italia.
