BIO


Annika Sellik is Oslo based visual artist. She is mainly working with reflections on sound in a form of installation using traditional craft practices along with solutions involving electronics and programming, her practice is varied and socially alert based on speculative research and perception, asking critical questions on norms of perceiving and understanding of borders and values in an approach of community building.
As consciously using slow processes and looking for sustainable solutions, such as traditional woodworking, string instrument building, making salt from local sea water by using sunlight, collecting berries for pigments, herbs for local community etc - radical care taking becomes an act providing mental space to observe, reflect and to honour the materials and to question her own thoughts and presence

in contemporary context and in community building.
Her practice often manifests in transformations or reflections of spaces and spheres rather than using space as a context to show her work.
