The work on the image undertaken by Thora Dolven Balke (born 1982) could be seen as related to the long tradition of Scandinavian landscape painting. Undoubtedly the images have become digital ones, but they undergo modifications or ‘perturbations’, which in certain cases can be reminiscent of the effects created by Peder Balke on the surface of his paintings. She deconstructs and uses the materials on which these images occur, and in doing so, brings out their beauty, their narrative and poetic potential, and simultaneously produces an important work around sound.
