Marte Johnslien (b. 1977) recieved her artistic education from the National Academy of Arts in Oslo (2002-2005). She has a versatile production comprising sculpture, architecture, photography and documentation. Exhibitions and projects are manifested in larger architectonic sculptures and installations, as well as in small handmade artist-books.

In her first exhibition in Galleri Riis, Forente Nyanser (United Nuances), Johnslien has taken as point of departure the meditation room in the United Nations building in New York; a quiet room initiated by, and to a large extent conceived by, the former Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld.
