Slåttnes, Daniel

Sculpture, performance, multimedia

In my work I try to listen to the “voice” of things; may it be my subconsciousness, the houseplant, a piece of lumber or some clay. My interest in communicating with things maybe stems from the feeling that even people are alien in some way. I feel the world is not a set thing. Physical science can attest that reality as we know it most likely is experiences and ideas. I try to explore and stretch experiences of the things we make real.

I live and work in Oslo, Norway and in Västra Ämtervik, Sweden. I completed my MFA at the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo in 2014. Recent solo and collaborative exhibitions include Vegetal Connections at Atelier Nord in Oslo, Norway, Consciousness in the time of Kairos (in collaboration with Sara Rönnbäck and Hans Edward Hammonds) at Kurant in Tromsø, NO, Conversation Between Bodies (together with Sara Rönnbäck) at the Art Museum of Nord-Trøndelag, NO all in 2018; Seances with Materials at Podium in Oslo and Hotel Pro Forma in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2015 and Platform 1-12 in Nastupiste, Slovakia in 2017.
