About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Framer Framed

Sissel Marie Tonn

Sissel Marie Tonn (born in 1986, Copenhagen, Denmark) is based in The Hague.

In her practice she explores the complex ways humans perceive, act upon and are entangled with their environments. She makes wearable, sculptural or performative ‘props’, that challenge and question the body’s preconfigured modes of perception and attention, and invites the audience to engage directly with them.

These ‘props’ are meant to shed light on how our biology, as well as our cultural conditions –be it artifacts, forms of knowledge, and architecture – influence the ways in which we perceive and act upon our environments.

In 2019, Sissel was part of the exhibition Elsewheres Within Here curated by Jo-Lene Ong at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.
