  • I am a visual artist situated in Norway and my artistic activity is idea based. The projects are realized in mixed media and I use interactivity, relational esthetics, humor and popular culture references to explore social and political contexts.

    These strategies are used to react on important themes in our time. For example structures of power like capitalism, globalization and post modernism.

    The works balances between playful and concrete. This way the works avoids being educational. This fine line becomes a condition for the theme which forces the viewer to be active in the meeting with the art and in some cases it becomes the very condition for the works existence.

    I begin the Bachelor education in visual arts at the Academy of fine arts in Trondheim, Norway 2008. My previous works, CV and a more supplementary biography can be viewed at http://www.slaattnes.no
