Silje Linge Haaland (b. 1984, Norway) works with text, movement and rituals, often in the forms of video, sculpture and live choreography. Her methods are based on a desperation-animation-technique, which refers to something urgent, an observation of the growing states of desperation in our present time. Her work is characterised by a grip on the poetic leftovers generated in the isolation of movement and rhythm. Linge Haaland holds a MFA (2011) from the Oslo Academy of fine arts, HfBK Staedelschule, Frankfurt and Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam.
