Hi and Welcome!

My name is Anastína. I am an educated sculptor based in Oslo, Norway.

I work multidisciplinary, my art practice unfolds at the intersection between sculpture, installation and performance.

My works reflect upon environmental matters with a main focus on water. Water takes both subject and material in most of my works.









NO WATER - NO CHAMPAGNE



The Door Creative Studio

‘No water -No champagne’ reiterates signifiers typically associated with the upper class of contemporary capitalist society. A 20 litre block of ice is suspended above the glass arrangement, ready to be melted and unevenly re-distributed throughout the hierarchical pyramid of stacked glasses.




COASTLINE
(PERFORMANCE)

Coastline is a site specific performance piece for Netherlands particularly, a third of the country is below sea-level with its lowest point at -6,7m. The startingpoint of the performance is the waterlevel of the given location, which in this case is 1m under NAP (Normaal Amsterdams Peil - the average high water mark).


A human body attempts to swim in space wearing a wetsuit. In a two-pointed harness, which allows versatile movements of the body, the performer moves slowly. The gravity leads the choreography, even a subtle adjustment changes the balance. With a crane which the hangingsystem is attatched to, the performer elevates, floating at imaginary horizons of the worst case future scenarios.
