Åsne Eldøy (born in 1987, Bergen, Norway) works within the medium of photography, publications and installation. Mixing the language of looking, reading and building. In Eldøy’s artistic practice themes such as belonging and transformation are looked upon. Man made landscapes and the wonders of nature. Her approach is often poetic, yet political, seen through local communities and city development. A repeated investigation is on how mankind takes nature and creates culture. That we transform natural landscapes and create new, urban environments, which then become our homes.
