Tori Wrånes is a vocalist and
artist, combining voice and sculpture in the field of performance. Her use of
sounds, musical instruments, costumes, props, architecture and sculptures
deforms her appearance and creates new dreamlike constellations. Wrånes creates
landscapes where everyday objects are reinterpreted as small adventures. Choreography
with sound might be a good way to describe her work, be it solo or with
multiple performers, like singers on bikes, musicians in a chairlift, or saw
players seated in trees. In her recent
soloshow Hot Pocket at the Museum of Contemporary Art Norway, she also
shows sculptures, sound installations and videos.
Other works are DRASTIC PANTS,
at Carl Freedman Gallery in London, STONE and SINGER commissioned for
the 19Th Biennale of Sydney 2014, YES NIX, a commissioned work for
PERFORMA 13, New York; Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka; CCA Lagos, Nigeria and
Sculpture Center, New York. This autumn she will participate with a soloshow Ældgammel
Baby at Kunsthall Charlottenburg, København; Lagos Biennale, Nigeria; Kuir
Festival Bogota´, Colombia and compose a vocal piece for PROTOTYPE New York.
Wrånes is represented by Carl Freedman Gallery, London.
