Ananda Serné

 
Ananda Serné (1988, NL) holds an MA in Fine Arts from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík. Through moving image, photography, textiles and writing, her practice explores forms of sensory (dis)orientation. She questions the notion of the eye as the most prominent of the senses and examines the challenges that visual media like photography and moving image pose when trying to capture natural phenomena.
With an emphasis on certain plants and animals, she focuses on the ways in which to navigate through various landscapes. In the past, this made her touch upon topics such as the sense of smell in moths, the way in which bats use echolocation, and the changing vegetation around a hydroelectric power station. 
In order to create her work, she visits specific places where she collects words, images or sounds that serve as ingredients in her practice. These elements are then intuitively arranged into narratives that weave temporary connections between the concrete, the elusive and the imaginary.



A selection of recent solo/group exhibitions and screenings includes:
Prospects & Concepts, Art Rotterdam; MeshGalleri CC, Malmö; Høstutstillingen, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo; Studio 17, Stavanger; Tenderflix International Film and Video Prize, Tenderpixel, London; Bangkok Underground Film Festival and Stuttgarter Filmwinter, Germany.
She completed residencies at Skaftfell Center for Visual Art in Iceland and Asahi AiR in Japan.
Her short stories appeared on De Internet Gids and De Fusie.
She is a board member of artist-run space Studio17 in Stavanger, Norway.
