She was awarded the Montana Enterprize at Kunsthallen Brandts in Denmark and has participated in the Liverpool Biennale, the Gwangju Biennale, and the Jeju Biennale, among others. Kaisen has an MFA from the University of California Los Angeles, an MA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program.
