BIO

Solveig Settemsdal lives and works in London. She is a graduate of Sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art (2018) and studied BA Fine Art Painting & Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art (2007-2010).

She was awarded first place in the Jerwood Drawing Prize for her video work Singularity (2016).

Select exhibitions include Entangle, Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden (2018) AI: Das Andere Ich, Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria (2017) Sonica at CCA, Glasgow (2017) Drawing Biennial at Drawing Room, London (2017) Høstutstillingen, Statens Kunstforening, Oslo, Norway (2014) Conversation Pieces, Spike Island, Bristol (2015) Shadow Optics, Lubomirov/Angus-Hughes Gallery, London (2016) A Solid Above, Hardwick Gallery, Cheltenham (2016).


Settemsdal’s practice moves through the mediums of sculpture, drawing, video, sound and photography. She is fascinated by the mutability of object and medium, and our indescribable and often impossible relationship to our environment. Her recent solo show Pool looks at mistranslations between us and our technology in interpreting material reality: what goes missing, and what is created.

She questions cornerstones of ideas and objects, looking at how these transform over time. A key example of this is the centre point of her degree show at the Slade School of Fine Art: a four metre long cast of Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins’ concrete model of a Hylaeosaurus from 1854 in Crystal Palace Park.
