Siri Hermansen is a Norwegian filmmaker, photographer and installation artist. Through her artistic practice she investigates unforeseen affects in societies that are undergoing deep economic, environmental or cultural changes. Her work offers unusual micro-perspectives on contemporary methods of survival and processes of adaption from societies that can be considered as uncertain zones.
Her artistic research method resembles a form of shared anthropology where the outcome of the material is dependent on the interrelations created on location, and the artist’s personal experience of the place.
Siri Hermansen completed her doctorate at the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo in 2016. She holds a MFA from École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and a BFA from Parsons School of Design.
