Exhibition & Residency:
October 15 – December 31, 2014
Sille Storihle is an artist and researcher based in Berlin, working mainly with short films and publications. She holds a BA in Fine Art from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and an MA in Aesthetics and Politics from California Institute of the Arts. Her central areas of interest include gender politics, nationalism, and history. With Liv Bugge, she runs the Oslo based platform FRANK, aiming at building community, showing contemporary art and generating discussions addressing hegemonic structures in society relating to gender and sexuality. In 2013, she completed a short film called The Goodness Regime, in collaboration with Jumana Manna. The film investigates the foundations of the ideology and self-image of modern Norway as a peacemaking nation through the Oslo agreement in 1993. Storihle recently finished the short The Stonewall Nation looking at the relationship between power, politics, and desire in the Californian gay rights movement in the early 70s. Her artistic and curatorial projects have been shown at The Norwegian Museum of Contemporary Art (2014), ONE Archives (2014), MoMA PS1 (NYABF, 2014), Manifesta 10 (On Board, 2014), The Jerusalem Show VII (2014), Kunsthall Oslo (2013), Bergen Assembly (2013), Performa 13 (2013), 11th Sharjah Biennial (2013), Unge Kunstneres Samfund (2013) and Kunstnernes Hus (2012).
