Signe Lidén (NO) is an artist based in Amsterdam and Bergen. 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 has an MA from the Academy of Arts in Bergen and graduated from the Nordic Sound Art MA program in 2012. Lidén realised her work Vertical Studies: Acoustic Shadows and Boundary Reflections (2017) in collaboration with Espen Sommer Eide at 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 (Kola peninsula); the installation series Writings for the European Sound Art Network Resonance (2013-14); and collaborated with Steve Rowell and Annesofie Norn on The Cold Coast Archive (2010-12), an exhibition series on the Global Seed Vault launched at the Centre for PostNatural History, Pittsburgh. She was commissioned to make works for Volt, Hordaland Art Center, Kunsthall Oslo and Ny Musikk, Touch Radio, Inteferenze New Arts Festival, and St John's College Oxford. She was one of the curators for Lydhørt at Lydgalleriet in Bergen.
