Galleri Riis

Siri Aurdal

Siri Aurdal (b. 1937) lives and works in Oslo. She received her artistic education from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. As a painter, graphic artist and sculptor, Aurdal is an innovative figure in contemporary Norwegian art history because of her experimental use of industrial materials, organic forms, and monumental installations in which the audience has played an active and cooperative role. In her work, Aurdal emphasizes art's social and political potential, and she was prominently featured in the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 2017.
