Silje Hyenes Lysne's practice focuses on stories of displacement, or the suggestion that all is not what it appears to be; video projectors cast shadows of objects long removed, events that will never take place are recorded, and mythology, with its fondness for allegory, is given the validity of science.
Drawing on a multitude of sources, ranging from culture and science to critical theory, Lysne orchestrate scenarios in which different elements can draw unlikely connections across time, space and context to form new structures.
Lysne is a Norwegian born video and sound installation artist, living and practicing in the UK. In 2009 she graduated from Central St. Martins College of Art & Design with a first class honour degree in BA Fine Art, specializing in time-based media. Lysne has worked with a range of individual artists, creative practitioners as well as a variety of educational, commercial and creative institutions to produce video works, sound installations and short documentaries.
