Signe Becker

Signe Becker (1981) is a visual artist who operates in a diverse and interdisciplinary landscape. Her artistic projects include collaborative theatre- and dance productions, as well as personal art projects like spatial installations, performances and sculptures, often with a textile starting point that in correlation with other elements seeks a form of revival life. A sculptural pair of  trousers is given life when it meets a living body and a textile mural is breathed into life and transformed into a meandering mass. Becker's work comes to life through her intuitive and performative approach to the materials, from her need for reacting critically to the times and world in which we live, as well to the role as an artist. This is expressed, among other things, through her own presence in certain works, as well as the creation of her alter ego, the shifting character Cynthia.

Becker holds a bachelor's degree in scenography from the Norwegian Theatre Academy (NTA) in Fredrikstad (2006) and a master's degree in visual communication from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (2008), and is currently finishing her PhD at Oslo National Academy of the Arts with her project "Made Life - Staged objects and a staged self".

Becker is six times nominated for the Hedda Award as the Year's Scenographer and received together with Ingri Fiksdal the Critic Award for Dance 2014.
