Marit Tunestveit Dyre. Porsgrunn 1983

She finds inspiration through observing the world, at close hold and at distance, in dialogues, in words, in self-perceived situations, through interaction and in the questions that arise when faced with something that to her is new, something that triggers, fascinates and or annoys. Her work respond and reflects her current occupation, and she is interested in questions related to human dignity, immigration, social, cultural, economical and political value systems and hierarchies and exchange of knowledge. She is interested in how we interact and communicate privately, nationally and globally, and tend to find her self drawn towards formats of expression or subjects of interest that are somehow outside of her knowledge or comfort zone. Textile is a recurring and important element in her practice, both as a physical material and as a rich source of inspiration. She is drawn towards the material because of its inherent qualities; its soft and flexible. Because of its practical use; traditionally, but mostly what she looks at as; the expanded use of textile in various social, cultural, urban and political contexts. Because of the materials historical, cultural, social and personal references and associations, because of traditions and how a textile; being a flag can bring people together, or divide them apart. Her work has in recent years taken the form as performance, in flag form, as photo, text and as sculptural objects that require or invite the audience to participate. She graduated in 2013 with a Master in Fine Arts and a Bachelor in specialized art textile from Bergen National Academy of Arts and Design in Norway.
