PETER HORNELAND   (1985 -          )

Artist & vitki from Norway.

Most of my work and study operates in an interplay of art, technology and occultism, usually expressed publicly in the form of performance, installation, social practice and digital/new media productions. I’m engaged in the ways we map and model our experience and understanding, mythologise, and influence each other (from the field of marketing to esoteric ritual initiations), as well as the potential for interacting with randomised reshufflings of our meaning-sets to open up new horizons (as in cut-up technique, dérive, machine-learning experiments, and divination).

MFA at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. BFA at the Oslo National Academy of Fine Arts. Awarded a residency at FKDS Ateliers at Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo, Norway, and the From Dusk till Dawn PNEK Art Prize︎ in 2017. Recent performances in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Featherstone Castle in Northumberland, and exhibitions in Rotterdam and Oslo.
