Torbjørn Rødland

°1970, Stavanger (NO) – lives and works in Los Angeles (US) and Oslo (NO)

Torbjørn Rødland is an LA-based Norwegian artist. Informed by the Pictures Generation’s self-reflexive use of commercial media and its embrace of the Barthesian “birth of the reader,” Rødland takes up the conventions of genre photography. But as the viewer registers the image, the semiotic constellations do not resolve; rather, the viewer is pinned by the weight of her own subjective projections.

Group exibitions include MCA, Chicago; MOSTYN, Wales; Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis; Musée d’Art Contemporain, Lyon; and Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid. Rødland also participated in projects such as MANIFESTA 11, Zürich and the 9th Berlin Biennale.
