Linda Morell (NO)
Linda Morell is a visual artist based in Bergen who mainly works with sculpture and installation, forming speculative futures based on myths, science and medicine. Through the reinterpretation of current and historical theories surrounding the human body she has created works in various materials such as ceramics, metals, glass and plastics. Some of her previous work used hygienic design to examine the relationship between body and object, while the more recent have borrowed their form from organic organisms. The works have often moved between the human and non-human both in form and concept alluding to alienation and some of her work has mixed hand-built processes with virtual techniques to explore new forms of sculpting. Characterized by their material precision, the works can be understood as hybrids and artificial organisms.
