The Norwegian artist Trine Lise Nedreaas is perhaps best known for her intriguing and beautiful films of lone performers. Through strictly directed, symbolically charged documentary based films of individuals, Nedreaas illuminates the large and the strange variety of human endeavours. Drawing from a long history of portraiture, her often humorous work is inspired by the lives of people through whose ideas, talents and demeanour she seeks a deeper reflection on the human condition. Nedreaas’ performers are filmed removed from the audiences and spectacles that usually surround them, left in a timeless space with only themselves and their act remaining.
Nedreaas' work has been shown at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; MoMA PS1, New York; Kunstwerke, Berlin; Palazzo delle Arti, Napoli; Everson Museum, NY; Kunstverein Schwerin; New Center for Contemporary Art, Louisville; MACRO, Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Rome; Art Pavilion, Zagreb; Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo; ARGOS Centre for Art and Media, Brussels; and Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, to name a few. Her work is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
