Marita Isobel Solberg arrives at The Performance Studio from Animal Maximalism, New York to present a new performance
Inside the metaphor of the sun and the line and the cave.
Marita Isobel Solberg (born 1977, Tromsø, Norway) was raised in Manndalen in Northern Norway, where Sami, Kven and Norwegian cultures live side by side. She lives and works as a musician and visual artist with Tromsø as a base. Marita crosses artistic expressions. She works in the borderline between art, life and science, focusing mainly on sound, performance and installation.
Experimenting with different media in her work and interweaving elements from the surroundings, Solberg's work is often site-specific and relational, reinforced by a strong performative tension. The works explore a world of challenge, strangeness, melancholy and desire sometimes with narrative passages or content, mixing with more symbolic and ritual elements.
Marita Isobel Solberg was an artist in residence at The Performance Studio in 2012. She will be presenting a new performance especially devised for The Performance Studio.
