CANCELLED: Irene Nordli, visual artist and sculptor



Irene Nordli is a visual artist who works with ceramic sculptures and larger scale works. A recurring theme in her works is hybrids of humans and animals.

Irene Nordli (1967) is a Norwegian visual artist and sculptor living and working in Oslo and in Heestrand, Sweden.

Irene Nordli works with ceramic sculptures and larger scale works where she among other themes works with animal and human hybrids in various degrees of abstraction. Irene Nordli's point of departure is the porcelain figurine. It has undergone a development, where figurative elements peek out in large organic accumulations. Her use of the material is dramatic, suggesting intuitive emotional outbursts and offering glimpses of human body parts. The result is a contemporary ceramic sculpture with references to traditional porcelain figurines. In her artist talk she will present her work and thought around the figurine, does it make sense to continue making porcelain figurines? She will also talk about how she is working towards her exhibitions and art she makes for public space.

Irene Nordli graduated from Bergen Academy of Art and Design in 1996 and has until 2020 been professor at Art and craft department at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Oslo. She was awarded a Norwegian Government Grant for Artists in 2010. She has had a number of solo exhibitions and has been part of a large number of group exhibitions both in Norway and internationally. She has also been commissioned to produce a number of public works in Norway - in Asker, Lillestrøm, Halden prison and Bodø amongst others.
