Silenti, Anna-Liisa


I am educated as textile artist in National College of Art and Design I Oslo. My artistic career has included various national and international exhibitions, commissions and consulting in public buildings. I have also received several scholarships given by the Norwegian government.

My work intends to find out about things we don´t see directly, things that are hiding somewhere underneath, things that are mysterious and mythic, things based on my personal experiences and memories.

For the time being I use recirculated materials as wastepaper from publishers, newspapers, kitchen towels, worn sheets and so on. This has resulted among others to papersculptures pretending a hibernating larva waiting for the transformation.
