Tori Wrånes is a vocalist and artist, and has a trans medial artistic practise, which unfolds as performance, sculptures, videos or installations. Her use of sounds, musical instruments, costumes, props, architecture and sculptures deforms her appearance and creates new rituals and dreamlike constellations. Choreography with sound might be a good way to describe her work, be it solo or with multiple performers, like operah-singers on bikes, musicians in a chairlift, or a singing rock. Lately, Wrånes has been occupied with developing her own Troll-technique;  an improvised, non-verbal, language based on rhythm and temperament.
Her recent works include her solo Hot Pocket at Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; the solo Ældgammel Baby / Ancient Baby, Kunsthal Charlottenborg Denmark ; DRASTIC PANTS, Carl Freedman Gallery London; STONE and SINGER commissioned by the 19Th Biennale of Sydney (2014); YES NIX, commissioned by PERFORMA 13 New York; Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka; Dhaka Art Seminars, Dhaka Bangladesh; CCA Lagos, Nigeria; The Eccentrics Sculpture Center, New York. This autumn she will participate with a new score for PROTOTYPE Nyc, and have a solo at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warszawa. Wrånes is represented by Carl Freedman Gallery, London.
