Artistic essens/CV

Roald Andersen dy. 

Norwegian visual artist. Born 1971 in Stavanger. Living and working in Kristiansand.

I work mainly with sculpture, installation and drawing /mix media on paper. I also work with social collaborative projects in several different settings.  

Selection of exhibitions / assignments:
Sørlandets Kunstmuseum (regional art museum), KODE Art Museums in Bergen, Kristiansand Kunsthall (local art museum) , Galleri Jacob Bjørn i Aarhus and Q42. 

The themes I work with often revolve around everyday objects we surround ourselves with, such as floors, beds and benches.
The installations challenge our prejudices and preconceptions about what a floor / bed / bench is or may be. They change our perspectives and make us look at the elements of our lives we otherwise take for granted in a different way. The floor seems to hide a secret. The bed becomes a living organism.
In my projects I often involve users and audiences in the work process. The inclusive workflow gives the projects important perspectives as I move on to the finished result.

Several public schools and kindergartens, the Norwegian Public Road Administration and Sørlandet Regional Hospital have been arenas and partners in these social projects.
