Ananda Serné

Ananda Serné (b. 1988) is based in Norway and the Netherlands. She holds an MA in Fine Arts from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík. Through moving image, photography, installation and writing, her practice explores forms of sensory (dis)orientation, as well as various ways of experiencing certain landscapes both cognitively and intuitively. In order to create her work, she visits specific places where she collects texts, conversations, objects, 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 solo/group exhibitions and screenings includesHøstutstillingen, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo; Studio 17, Stavanger, Norway; Tenderflix International Film and Video Prize, Tenderpixel, London; Gerdarsafn Kópavogur Art Museum, Iceland; Antimatter Media Art, Canada and Stuttgarter Filmwinter, Germany. She has been awarded a number of residencies including Villa Ruffieux in Switzerland and Asahi AIR in Japan. Her short stories appeared on De Internet Gids and De Fusie.
