Trygve Luktvasslimo

Trygve Luktvasslimo is an artist and filmmaker who has been based in Lofoten since 2016. The last few years he has been exploring human communication and search for meaning in a language where the absurd unfolds within cinematic and theatrical conventions. A central element in his work, is the way he plays with these conventions to point at how we are being seduced by different messages and truths in contemporary media society. With his visually striking films, he grapples with existential questions, while mixing the sombre with parody.
Luktvasslimo holds an MFA in Visual Art from Malmö Art Academy (2006). He will undertake a residency in his own home in Valberg, Lofoten for five months in autumn 2018 and in spring 2019.
