Keramikk og elektronisk kunst

Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier 22.sept 2024, kl 12-17 --

As a visual artist based in Bergen, I graduated in 2019 with a Master of Contemporary Art from UiB. I am the founder and director of
Cone 7 Ceramic Workshop, where I manage our international residency program. My research delves into creating dynamic objects that evolve toward self-destruction, exploring themes of memory and materiality. By blending ceramics with electronics, I craft interactive ecological installations that reflect on the profound impact of human activities on today's ecosystems.

My practice reflects on the shift towards a posthumanist era, displaying how our perception of our bodies and materials is evolving alongside advancements in technology. My ongoing research leads me to the making of ceramics active objects undergoing self-destruction. Mixing ceramics and electronics, I create interactive installations that serve as reflections of human impact on contemporary ecosystems. Thus, in emphasizing the dominant influence we exert, my work weaves narratives of impending catastrophe, leveraging the presence of the viewer as a catalyst.
