Siri Ekker Svendsen works and lives in Oslo, and has a MA from Bergen National Academy of the Arts. She works primarily with the relationship between nature, perception and consciousness, and where the distinction is drawn between the physical world and the human perception and imagination. She examine this issue through photography and video, with motives of natural phenomena, trees, plants, animals and humans, often in a state of transformation or interaction. Many of her works are based on biology, psychology and mythological material.
Her photographic practice is based on analog camera and film, where the accompanying restriction and risk is an important part of the process. She works with both stagings, studies and found motifs, and uses these methods interchangeably within the same series.
