Ananda Serné


Ananda Serné (1988, NL/NO) holds an MA in Fine Arts from the Iceland University of the Arts. Through moving image, language and textiles, 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? And how do we cope with and attend to subjects that we cannot hold in our hands, that are difficult to hear or see?

Her work was among others shown at Galleri 54, Göteborg, SE; Studio17, Stavanger, NO; Vestlandsutstillingen, Kunstmuseet KUBE, Sogn og Fjordane Kunstmuseum, Kunsthall Stavanger, Kunstgarasjen Bergen;
Høstutstillingen, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo, NO; Galleri CC, Malmö, SE;  Tenderflix Film and Video Prize, Tenderpixel, London, UK; Minimalen Kortfilmfestival, Trondheim, NO; Stuttgarter Filmwinter, DE; Bangkok Underground Film Festival, TH; Art Rotterdam, NL; Kunsthuis SYB and EYE Film Museum, Amsterdam, NL. 

Amongst these are projects that have been supported by the Mondriaan Fund, Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond and the Arts Council Norway.

Her short stories have been published in various magazines in the Netherlands. 

Serné was awarded a residency at Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taipei (TW) by the Dutch Mondriaan Fund. She also participated in residencies at Asahi AiR, Nagano (JP) and Skaftfell Center for Visual Art in Seyðisfjörður (IS).  

Her work is in the collection of the City of Gothenburg and the Bibliothèque Kandinsky - Centre Pompidou. 

Alongside her studio practice, Serné is co-running independent exhibition space Studio17 in Stavanger, Norway.
