Petrine Vinje is an artist based in Oslo.She received her MA in Fine Art at the Institute of Colour, Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2005. Her sculptural installations often combine audiovisual and textual elements in a large scope of materials, where she explores ideas about belief, temporality and spatiality in the systems of the material and immaterial. Vinje`s artistic practice is informed by mysticism, technology, phenomenology and feminist theory.

Petrine Vinje has been conducting temporal, transdisciplinary projects in public space, commissions and artistic research projects. Her work have been exhibited in a number of national and international group exhibitions, and in solo exhibitions at Fotogalleriet, Oslo (2018), the Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo (2014), Tegnerforbundet (2017) amongst others. She has conducted several public commissions including for the Research Council of Norway, and the Norwegian Defence Estates Agency. In 2018, Vinje published Anthology – _Anatomical Theatre, a book based on a project where she invited scholars and artists to contribute in a vast associated programme that was set in a replica of an anatomical theatre from the 1500s produced for the Norwegian Sculpture Biennale (2013).

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
