BIO

Victoria Duffee b.NYC 1988 lives and works in Oslo Norway
Victoria Duffee’s textile assemblages incorporate weaving, painting and small metal sculpture. Through the installation of these works in a space, she plays with the projected feminized attributes of handicrafts, interiors and fashion, and the idea of modern life as an illusion.

By deconstructing and reassembling soft objects and materials that have been, or can become, intertwined in daily life, such as jewelry, clothing and home textiles, the object’s potential relation to the body, and memory emerges.

Her paintings are often applied with dyes onto silky materials, she refers to the figure, and replaces it with the depictions of nature or symbols that have a historical or personal significance.

She is also involved in creating a series of texts which meander between personal stories, useless geographical information and art criticism. These works have been published in small publications internationally but they began when she and Andreas Breivik co-founded an art criticism magazine in 2016 titled Vi Ser På Kunst.

Victoria Duffee’s work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in Oslo, New York City, and Los Angeles, including an exhibition at Yale university in 2013, Tableau Paper release utstilling in 2016, and at the Høstlys kunstfestival i Groruddalen. In 2018, the artist collaborated with the clothing brand HAiK W/ by producing wearable sand casted bronze sculptures for their winning runway show at Oslo Runway. This October, Duffee will have her first solo exhibition in Norway at Salgshallen, Oslo. In the summer of 2021 she is scheduled to have a larger scale solo exhibition at the Buer Gallery in Oslo.
