Ragna Misvær Grønstad


Ragna Misvær Grønstad (originally from Bodø in North of Norway) studied printmaking and drawing and received her MFA degree in 2016, from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) in Medium- and Material-Based Art, and her BA in Visual Art in 2013 (KHiO).

In the catalogue for Misvær Grønstad's MFA show, "The Silent After", Eva González-Sancho writes:

"Misvær Grønstad explores the ways in which we perceive reality through literary texts. Figures such as Simone de Beauvoir, Guy Debord and Hannah Arendt navigate her boundless aquatic world­—which she refers to as Saltvannsblomstene (salt water flowers)—as representatives of liberation, poetry and punk, the singularity of the individual and his/her emancipation."

Her work is marked by a social critique which is anchored in her belief in the positive potential of escapism, and in the force of the imaginary. In 2014 she was admitted to “The 68. North Norway Art Exhibition” with the print “The Great Escape”.

She graduated with “The Silent After” MFA Degree Show at KHiO, with her project “Conversations in Sáivu” (2016).


In time, we too will become ancestors...
