Tori Wrånes

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.
