Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 17. september 2022 --

Although many of my works are film and video works, the specific media is not important to me. My ideas and questions are at the centre of my practice and the appropriate medium follows, be it moving images, photography, drawing or found objects that I later alter.
My point of departure as a filmmaker has always been loosely based in portraiture and documentary. The nature of people’s life, work, talents and ideas has inspired me to make films with them as subjects. The individuals that have intrigued me the most have been those whose actions or demeanor can in some way reflect on the human condition.
Through simple materials and playful human performances, I try to bring the mind-blowing endlessness of time and space down to an earthly scale.

Nedreaas lives and works in Bergen, Norway. Her work has been shown at the billboards in Times Square NY, Personal Structures at the Venice Biennial, in the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), PS1 Moma (NY), Kunstwerke (Berlin), Palazzo delle Arti (Napoli), Everson Museum (NY), Kunstverein Schwerin, New Center for Contemporary Art (Louisville), MACRO, Museo d'Arte Contemporanea (Rome), Art Pavilion in Zagreb, Albright Knox Gallery (Buffalo, NY), Astrup Fearnley (Oslo). She is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
