Ananda Serné (1988, NL) is an artist based in Stavanger, Norway. She studied literature and linguistics, before obtaining an MA in Fine Arts from the Iceland University of the Arts. Through moving image, sound, language and textiles, 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.
