Silje Løvstad was born and raised in a small Norwegian town, sequestered by a forest range. Local folklore and Scandinavian sensibilities have shaped the way she perceives the world around her. Her artwork is energetic and immediate, characterised by a childlike intuitive approach. Working with photography, sound and video, Løvstad’s practice appears unapologetically unrefined. Choosing to work solely with a Polaroid camera, Løvstad aims to capture the rawness of photography and eliminate all the complexity of modern technology.

Løvstad is based in London and Oslo and works internationally.
