Beatrice Alvestad Lopez

Beatrice Alvestad Lopez was born and based in Oslo. She is an artist working across multiple fields, including land-based performance, photography, film and installation. Her practice often focuses on remote environments, ecology and poetic narratives. Beatrice’s land-based works are performance rituals where the artwork becomes an ephemeral part of an evolving process. Her method draws on her interest in the deeper traditions of artmaking and environmental concerns. Her camera serves as a crucial tool—a means of studying the landscape and documenting the spontaneous, ritualistic creative experiments she conducts.

MAI CONTRIBUTIONS

Through mindful, ritualistic daily walks and artistic practice, Alvestad Lopez documents and works with the Icelandic landscape on Gorvik. Here she connects a series of photographs to COVID-19 and a renewed consideration of our environment.
