Solo exhibition by by Norwegian artist Hedda Roterud Amundsen
INSTINC is proud to present the exhibition "dogbi(y)tes_palmtrees_salmondreams.zip" by Norwegian artist Hedda Roterud Amundsen, who is undergoing her residential stay in Singapore (7 December 2018 - 3 January 2019).
Hedda Roterud Amundsen is a visual artist based in Oslo, Norway. She is an alumni from LASALLE College of the Arts (BFA) and from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (MFA). Being born in 1989, the same year as Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, makes Amundsen an early digital native. The Internet as both experience (personal, collective) and site (social, cultural, environmental) heavily informs her practice.
Amundsen’s work focuses on the re-construction of visual material juxtaposed by intimate personal experiences. She aims to deconstruct potential visual/textual binary opposition: since most of our experience of media is a hybrid of texts, images, and sounds, rather than pure states of any one mode. She works in various media such as installation, digital collage, video, performance and text - and her projects usually overlaps and intertwines. Humour and visual culture (as a system) are modes of inspiration for her work, often incorporating elements from perceived “low” culture. The experience of everyday life within this framework, navigating and negotiating meaning, creates the context of her work.
In her show "dogbit(y)tes_palmtrees_salmondreams.zip" at INSTINC, she will be showcasing old and new works.
