Ingrid Kristensen Bjørnaali (b. 1991, Norway).
She is a video artist who recently graduated with an MFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, with parts of her studies spent in Helsinki at the Taideyliopiston Kuvataideakatemia’s “Time and Space Arts”. In her practice, she captures specific biotopes via photogrammetry and other camera-based technologies and proceeds to work with these bits and pieces of nature based on their virtual outcomes. In the process of recording and editing, she embraces the faulty details of the technology in use, so she acts on the technology’s conditions rather than fixing the appearing glitches. The resulting video works, sculptures, texts, or installations, therefore, bear marks of going through a process oscillating between control and chance, in search of some meeting ground between nature and human technology. Ingrid’s works explore the omnipresence of the digital in our experience of the world as well as the inability of technology to adequately comprehend the natural. Along with recording and editing, important parts of her practice also lie in performative collaborations, research, and writing.
Ingrid will be in residence at Can Serrat during the month of September 2022
