Film, fotografi, publikasjoner
Marte Aas (1966) is a photographer and film maker.
Aas´ main area of interest is the intersection between contemporary image culture, history,
technology and landscape. Her work attempts to address underlying structures and gestures that form political and ideological narratives. The different subjects of interest visualizes in the format of films, photographs and installations, folding them into non-linear stories.
The starting point for her works is often a narrative present in contemporary or historical material, which is being processed through research-assemblages into different formats and media, although strongly grounded in a photographic practice. Photography´s material aspects, the relationship between the sign and the signified and the representational value of photography is also investigated and processed in her art.
Aas is educated from The School of Photography at The University of Gothenburg and has had a number of exhibitions and screenings in Norway and abroad, her last major exhibition was Francine (was a machine) at Kunsthall Trondheim in 2019. Aas has published several books and catalogues including Marte Aas – Photography and Film, 2010, Torshovtoppen, 2008 and On the Subject of Body and Space, 2013 and is also one of the foundings members of the publishing house Multipress.
