Linn Pedersen

Pedersen's artistic practice encompasses photography, collage and sculpture as well as video and film. Merging documentary features with poetic elements, her photographs depict such varied subjects as discarded consumer goods, landscape sceneries, architectural constructions or human figures. Taken during random walks through the landscape, they are simultaneously expressive and introverted, examining the thin line between commonplace and idealisation by focusing on materiality and objecthood.

Pedersen holds a BA degree from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHiB) and an MA degree from Central Saint Martins in London. In 2011 she curated the Lofoten International Art Festival together with Thora Dolven Balke. Together with Ann Catrin November Høibo and Cecilie Nissen she curated a series of four exhibitons at Kristiansand Kunsthall in 2017.

Recent exhibition include: Captain's Cabin, MELK (2018), Group exhibition Milkshake #3, Galleri Golsa, (2018), Group exhibition Liv og Virke, (med Ann Cathrin November Høibo) Skulpturbiennalen, Vigelandsmuseet, (2017), New Scandinavian Photography, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2016), Stille Bilder, Lillehammer Kunstmuseum (2016), Frokost i det grønne, Kristiansand Kunsthall (2015).
