Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 26. september 2020 --

Andrea Urstad Toft is a visual artist from Bergen, working mainly with video and photography. She has a background in illustration, and graduated from Solent University Southampton with a Bachelor of Arts in 2017.

Andrea’s artwork is created through an investigative process, using a blend of analog and digital techniques. Her most recent work consists of video projections created through collaborations with musicians, with performances at BEK, Landmark, and in Domkirken for Festspillene i Bergen.

Her upbringing was filled with artistic and musical influences, and from an early age she showed great passion for everything creative. Being a child of the the 'analog age', she grew up synchronously with technology becoming more and more prominent and incorporated into our everyday life. Through her artistic work she aims to create an interpretation of what occurs in the intersection of the analog and digital world, and to portray the feelings and emotions of what it means to exist as a human being in today's society.
