Sissel Marie Tonn

Sissel Marie Tonn is a Danish artist based in The Hague. Her practice focusses the viewer on sensing and perceiving environments undergoing change. By combining writing with wearable objects and multi-media installations, the artist hopes to increase the viewer’s ability to ‘notice’ or pay more detailed attention to thier surroundings, opening up questions of the social, ethical and biological implications of environmental change.

Sissel is a 2015 graduate of our artistic research programme. In 2016 she received the Theodora Niemeijer prize for emerging female artists, and has exhibited at the Van Abbe Museum and Ballroom Marfa, among other projects. She is co-founder of The Reading Room, together with artist Jonathan Reus and Flora Reznik. Based in The Hague, this project seeks to engage artists with scholars in mutual exchanges of knowledge.
