Ananda Serné

 

Ananda Serné (1988, NL) is an artist based in Stavanger, Norway. Through video, photography, sound, language, textiles and installation, her practice explores questions that touch upon translation, (mis)communication and (non)biological intelligence. Her work is often informed by conversations and collaborations with others, for instance with biologists, vocalists or translators.
