Nygård, Randi

Collage, drawing, installation

My art works often depart from facts or scientific hypothesis that show how the physical and natural world is part of our society. Or they try to visualize relations that are hard to imagine. Examples might be that teeth are closely connected to memory, that our ways of living lead to plants and animals going extinct in other parts of the world, that a volcano eruption was one of the reasons for the French revolution and that time does not constantly go by, but that it is something that only arises between things. It is also central to bring forth a power or strength in both the images and the materials.
