Signe Lidén (1981) is an artist based in Bergen and Amsterdam. Her installations and performances examine man-made landscapes and their resonance. She is interested in how places and their histories resonate; in memory, through narratives and various materials, as ideological manifestations and political territories. Her work spans from sound installations, sculpture, video and performance to more documentary forms such as sound essays and archives.
Lidén’s project Vertical Studies: Acoustic Shadows and Boundary Reflections (2017) is a collaboration with Espen Sommer Eide and was realised at the Sonic Acts Festival (Amsterdam) and Borealis Festival (Bergen). She made the performance Altitude and History (2016) and krysning/пересечение/conflux (2014) for the Dark Ecology project in Nikel (on the Russian Kola peninsula), the installation series Writings for Resonance, a residency programme of the European Sound Art Network (2013-14), and collaborated with Steve Rowell and Annesofie Norn on The Cold Coast Archive (2010-12), a project about the Global Seed Vault launched at the Centre for PostNatural History. She was commissioned to make works for SALT, Volt, the Hordaland Art Center, Kunsthall Oslo, Ny Musikk, Touch Radio, and the Interferenze New Arts Festival, among others.
