BIO

Ina Otzko, born in Sandnessjøen, Norway 1972. Lives and works in Norway and Italy. She holds a dual Master’s from the Image and Communication (2004) and Fine Art (2007) programs at Goldsmiths College in London and an additional Master’s degree in Sound Studies (2012) from Berlin University of Arts, UdK. Otzko was the first recipient of Twendeprisen / Twende Art Award in 2018. 

Ina Otzkos oeuvre presents contemplations on the human condition and behaviour and is influenced by philosophy and mysticism – particularly in context to time and space and her personal search for spiritual and emotional transformation.  Her inspiration is drawn from her extensive journeys set against research of mankind’s encounter with time. Through practical and theoretical processes she investigates the complexity between memory and experience, reality and representation, human behaviour and spiritual ecology. She moves between employing analogue and digital technology, an exchange which offers alternative ways of reflecting upon time and the juxtaposition of our (dis)connected existence. Her current projects explore questions regarding relationships, identity and ownership of the natural landscape and body, matters of borders and the space between.
