With a series of controversial projects, Morten Viskum (b. 1965) has established himself as the artist Norway's cultural media likes to discuss most. Through his performative works he has shed light on a fear of the ephemeral and the strange that pervades our culture. Employing unconventional tools - including medical equipment, dead animals, cancer cells, and a deceased man's hand - he challenges both the relationship between science and ethics, and what art can morally embrace. Viskum works with installation, performance, photography, and painting, and has been represented at various exhibitions nationally and internationally.
