Eggen, Ingrid

Photo, video, sculpture

In my artistic practice I have worked extensively with the human body; its function and dysfunctions in relation to communication, representation, control and awareness. 
Through the use of a biological aspect I try to explore the psychological in human life. 

The affect theory is based on a turn away from the rational. Instinctive forces, movement patterns and reflexes in the muscles suggest that we are governed by something more basic, a more animal body.
I am interested in the controlled body set into suspense with the body’s unconscious drifts and reflexes.

With the help of performative methods, I look into movements and actions where the body’s natural anatomy, non-verbal language and use of symbols and gestures are displaced, dissolved and twisted. I explore different ways of dismantling and distorting this in order to make new compositions and structures in the body; thereby establishing new connections and a potential for new latitudes. New bodies.

I work mainly with analog color photography and video. The last year started experimenting with sculpture.
