Andersen, Signe Marie
I’m working with Photography. My background from the theater and my education from the Institute of Photography in Bergen in the early 90’s has influenced my artistic expression where the staged photograph is strong. I have been a clear voice since the late 90’s with the staged photograph on the contemporary art scene in Norway.
I work with exhibitions and photo books. I have some travel activity in connection with my work and work long term with each project. I work with relatively large formats.
I work with Gallery Riis in Oslo, where I exhibit on a regular basis.
Member of FFF
Planned projects and exhibitions
I’m working on a new photo book.
The material in the book is based on trips I have made to a number of different cities and places around Europe and the United States in the last year, to try to find scenes and people who interest me. I am looking for scenes and people who can convey the moods I experience as part of our contemporary. The book will be published in the autumn of 2018 at the publishing company Teknisk industri, with launch and an accompanying smaller exhibition with pictures from the book at Galleri Riis in Oslo.
