Andreas Dyrdal (1979, Norway) was originally trained a contemporary dancer and a choreographer, and has transitioned into the visual arts through a wide range of activities as an artist. His current research is concerned with the performative potential of photographs, objects and text, and often in combination with each other, as installations. Key to his practice is the notion that a work can stand both in relation to and without a viewer, at the same time, and that by the way in which it performs, between these two states, it can mobilise the viewer to participate in its conversation.
