About Mette Edvardsen
The work of Norwegian artist Mette Edvardsen is situated within the performing arts, dance and choreography. Although her work explores other media and formats, such as video, books and writing, her interest is always focused on the relationship to the performing arts as a practice and a situation. Based in Brussels since 1996, she has worked as a dancer and performer for a number of companies, and developed her own work since 2002. A retrospective of her work was presented at Black Box theatre in Oslo in 2015. In 2010, she initiated the project Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine, which refers to a quote from the Ray Bradbury novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953), to develop memorisation as a practice and ongoing process.
