About Lillian Tørlen
Lillian Tørlen was born in 1975 in Ålesund (Norway). She currently lives and works in Oslo (Norway).
Norwegian ceramic artist Lillian Tørlen practice deals with individuals’ perception of and relationship with their surroundings. Through sculpture and installation, Tørlen invites viewers to evaluate space and the form and function of materials. Her site-specific project, Resonance, is an extensive installation consisting of hundreds of porcelain handkerchiefs that have been ‘spread by the wind’ and stuck between brick walls, street lamps and balconies. In this way, Tørlen activates the project route from Copenhagen Contemporary to Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Lillian Tørlen has received support from Norwegian Crafts and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for this project.
Lillian Tørlen will be part of CHART DESIGN.
