Signe Lidén (1981) is an artist based in Bergen. Her installations and performances examine man-made landscapes and their resonance. She is interested in how places and their histories resonate; in memory, through narratives and various materials, as ideological manifestations and political territories. Her work spans from sound installations, sculpture, video and performance to more documentary forms such as sound essays and archives.
As an artist, I am deeply curious about the way the world works. My practice is one of active observation; of engagement; of instigation; of experimentation. I research and recreate industrial systems and scientific processes - from the distillation of algal biodiesel to the boring of geologic core samples - to engage directly with the plant and mineral elements that we extract, concentrate and metabolize to fuel our highly synthesized, and ever-accelerating, world. Water, algae, oil, petroleum, bitumen, carbon, silicon, salt, wood, clay, fat, switchgrass, fiberglass, copper, steel, honey, plastic. I want to trace the, often incoherent, outlines of matter as it is pushed to fluidly transition into endless physicals forms, and is put into transit across vast histories and geographies. I am both terrified and fascinated by a world that seems infinitely more plastic -- and more fragile -- with each technologic development.
I am an environmental artist, making site specific nature based sculpture, often referred to as Land Art or Art in Nature. I also work in art and Science. I make installations inside and make works on paper, works with maps, digital and video art, and works with mushrooms. My work makes connections between different phenomena in the world, specifically between Nature and Culture, Inner and Outer and Microcosm and Macrocosm. To this end I collaborate with scientists and technicians from a broad spectrum of disciplines and use whatever visual means, technologies and materials best suit the situation.
