Marit Tunesveit Dyre
Graduate in Fine Arts, with a bachelor's degree in Specialist Art Textiles from the Bergen National Academy of Arts and Design in Norway. Her work focuses on formats of expression and themes that are somehow outside her knowledge or comfort zone; including social, cultural, economic and political issues relating to human dignity, gender equality, immigration, social and economic hierarchies and the environment. The last few years have seen her work develop into performance, sculptured items that require or invite the public to take part, in flag, photo or text form. Textiles are one of the elements she uses most in her practice, as a material and source of inspiration.
