Kruse, Janne

Sculpture, photography, video, text, printmaking, performance

My work is often travel-based and examines spatial and linguistic potentials in the meeting between the human body and the external world, between what can be seen and what cannot be seen. I deal with the relationship between physical and mental states, visual language, perception and the fragmented nature of memory. I am a graduate of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts and the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. I am also a part of the performative artist collective Verdensteatret.
