What Nature Knows
The force of nature is at the heart of Gjert Rognli’s artistic practice. He works across film, photography, sculpture and performance, often referencing his affiliation with Arctic Northern Norway: light, darkness and the seasons. The compositions float between surrealism and mythology, inspired by humanity’s urge to create mythology and a system of chaos in our time. Based in Norway, Rognli is part of the Sami indigenous people; the culture having intrinsically influenced his interpretation of reality. Rognli has received numerous international awards for his work with photography and film, and had many exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
