Sissel Marie Tonn


SISSEL MARIE TONN is a Danish artist based in The Hague (NL). In her practice she explores the complex ways humans perceive, act upon and are entangled with their environments. Her work always returns to the question at the core of ecological thought: Where do we perceive our bodies to end, and the environment to begin? Sissel is fascinated by moments of awareness and shifts in perception, where the boundaries between our bodies and the surrounding environment begin to blur. Tracing and capturing these moments often result in hybrid, interactive installations and objects, where audience is invited to engage in a sensory and participatory way with the stories and data at hand. Her wearable, sculptural and performative ‘props’ are meant to challenge our pre-configured modes of perception and attention, and 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 subsequently act upon our surrounding environments.
