Røys, Karl Ingar

Film, photo, installation, sculpture

Karl Ingar Røys’ work situates itself within the realm of photo, sculpture and moving image which sometimes expands into subjective forms through the exploration of the narrative and language of film itself. Karl Ingar Røys initially studied Law at the University of Tromsø before graduating from Central Saint Martins College of Art London. He is currently studying his Masters in Comparative Politics at the University of Bergen researching the role of cultural activism in transitional societies. Røys has exhibited widely internationally, with his most recent projects held at Latin American Centre for Rural Development. Chiloe, Chile, IIPPE Berlin School of Economics and Law,
 Espacio Trapézio. Madrid, John Jones Project Space London, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe, National Gallery of Arts Tirana, Kube Art Museum, Ålesund and Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium.
