b. 1979, NO.

Ida Windingstad (b.1979) attended The Royal Institute Of Art In Stockholm studying the project program in video art and studied visual communication, video, photography and art history at Konstfack, Stockholm. Windingstad has also a background as a scriptwriter and director. Windingstads work often takes form as a mix between poetry and politics that immerses us into a symbolic and surreal world. By breaking down classic narratives and narrative structures she wants to explore whether surrealism and documentary representations of reality can be the same or if they are totally different phenomena. Her work mostly consists of experimental films, texts and installations.

Windingstad has recently returned back to Norway after thirteen years abroad. She is now based in Stavanger, Norway.
