Communications consultant for Unit of Quality, Assurance and Enhancement and Research assistant for the artistic research project Topographies of the Obsolete, Department of Art, Bergen Academy of Art and Design.
Jane Sverdrupsen holds a MA degree from Department of Fine Art, Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2013).
Sverdrupsen works as an artist and curator. She co-founded and is member of the artist and curator group Odds.
During the last years Sverdrupsen has mainly worked with installation and sculpture. She makes use of ready-mades and digital media in her work. Many of her projects are site-specific or site-related.
Imagery and information related to the natural sciences play an important part in Sverdrupsen's artistic work as she investigates the element of subjectivity in contrast to authority in scientific contexts:
'Scientific questions are cultural questions. The same issues can be addressed within different fields of research. Both science and art continuously produce results that have an impact on our worldview. With this in mind, I work artistically with the framework and authority of scientific knowledge and its dissemination. Mainly in relation to the subject in the role as generator and as receiver of this information. Different research communities play a role in what can be seen as a knowledge grid, adding up to a whole that constitutes the information society. It is important to take a look at the structures that regulate this knowledge production.'
Jane Sverdrupsen´s area of responsibility as a research assistant is to administrate information about the artistic research project online.
