YOUR NEXT VACATION IS CALLING
December 4th – December 6th, 2014
I dream of a mental holiday. A sort of abstract desert of images, movement and sound.
– Tori Wrånes Nov 5, 2014
In December 2014 Lilith Performance Studio presented a new performance piece by Tori Wrånes.
The Norwegian artist Tori Wrånes has embedded Lilith Performance Studio in color and done every inch of the room to an explosive abstract painting where the furniture has left the floor and started to soar.
It is in this landscape Wrånes like to be, where everyday objects are reinterpreted and invalidated, as small adventures in soundscapes, oscillating between sports and melancholy. A musical flood of color and movement evoking a floating chaos without words and logic, determined by rhythm and moods.
Tori Wrånes is born in 1978 in Kristiansand, Norway. She lives and works in Oslo. Wrånes has a distinctive voice that can just as easily be placed in the music world as in the art world. Her way of combining voice and sculpture is sincere and honest.
Tori has a background as a singer and was the front figure of a rock band before she started at the Art Academy in Oslo, 2004. In several of her art works the voice is the basic element and the main thread, where it usually is physically challenged..
Tori Wrånes has performed and exhibited around the world on art museums, art galleries, biennales and festivals.
This year she showed the performance and the art piece STONE and SINGER at the 19th Biennale of Sydney, You Imagine What You Desire, Sydney, Australia. In 2013 she were commissioned by PERFORMA 13, New York, where she did the performance work YES NIX.
2015 she is in the residency program – The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York.
