About Lise Bjørne Linnert:

I am interested in art´s possibility to be a voice that can bring challenging or unpalatable questions closer, not to provide definitive answers but in order to enable reflections. When we come close we tend to care more…Core elements in my art practice are collaboration and time, projects develop and expand over time, some may last several years.

Process, projects, textile, drawing, performance, photography, installations…
