I’m a visual artist, architect and researcher. My work is related to a critical analysis of space; usually focused on institutional and cultural politics, urban planning and architecture. My interest starts at the phenomenological study of space and continues its investigation into the social and political nature of our living environment. I usually make extensive researches into specific situation found on location, which I use as a starting point of my project. The result isn’t only presented as analytical criticism, but it produces in itself already a suggestion for the future. I’m interested in finding alternative possibilities and making proposals from a hybrid point of view that ranges beyond art and architecture, making socially committed works naturally taking the form of everyday life activity. My practice is embedded within the interdisciplinary discourse and usually includes collaborations with other professionals such as architects, urban planners, curators, sociologists, and the local population.
I have a PhD from the University of Lund, Malmö Art Academy, Sweden; I’m running my own studio practice in Oslo where I live the last 3 years. Until recently I have been teaching at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Head of MFA Program: Art & Public Space.
As an artist, I have been invited to a number of internationally published and exhibited projects and exhibitions within and beyond the international contemporary art institutions around the world, like Moderna Museet Stockholm, Berlin Biennale 2, Luxembourg City of Culture, Moderna Galerija Ljubljana, Marian Goodman, Paris, De Appel, Amsterdam, Generali Foundation, Vienna, Art Museum, University of Memphis, USA, Tirana Biennale 3, Tirana, Muhka, Antwerp, Edinburgh International Festival, Bildmuseet, Umeå, Galerie für Zeitgenossische Kunst, Leipzig, 12th Architecture Biennale, Venice, Artes Mundi 5, Gwangju Biennial among others.
