Ananda Serné (1988, NL) is an artist based in Stavanger, Norway. She holds an MA in Fine Arts from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík. Through moving image, textiles and writing, her practice explores questions that touch upon translation and (mis)communication. How much information exists for example outside of the realm of human perception? How much information is lost?
Her work is often informed by conversations with others, for instance with biologists, linguists or translators. This results in videos that combine both staged and observational sequences.
Ananda completed residencies at Skaftfell Center for Visual Art in Iceland, Asahi AiR in Japan and Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taiwan. Her short stories appeared in several magazines in the Netherlands.
Alongside her own practice, she is co-running independent exhibition space Studio17 in Stavanger.
