About Siri Aurdal
Siri Aurdal was born in 1937 in Oslo (Norway). She currently lives and works in Oslo (Norway).
Known for her social sculptures, Aurdal utilized common industrial materials (plexiglass and pvc piping) for the creation of modular sculptural systems that could be reconceived or reformulated for a range of sites, from the gallery to an elementary school playground. She encouraged the materials to be abandoned following an installation, eschewing the art object in favor of a sculptural practice that provided a platform for social engagement. Like many artists who work in ephemeral forms, Aurdal was left with only documentation, which culled into a makeshift archive that traces her practice. It was here, that Mugaas began working to create this publication.
Siri Aurdal is represented by Galleri Riis.
