Bidstrup's work explores optical phenomena and interprets utopic social and architectural ideas through glass sculpture, installation and video. Her curiosity revolves around the power of perception, context and point of view in constructing our understanding through vision and how the human eye and mind are always engaged in myriad determinations and negotiations.
Bidstrup studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and has taught at her alma mater, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design on Bornholm since 2009. She was a visiting lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. Bidstrup has exhibited internationally for the past decade. She is the co-founder of The Copenhagen-based collaborative Luftkraft Glass Studio.
