Annie Tadne

Audiovisual artist from Stockholm.

Annie works within the intersection of art and technology, combines music, art, media, technology, and architecture in her works, uses audiovisual and performative ways of expression. The artist explores aspects of post-digitalism, where the combination of light, sound, space, materials, and structures can give new resonance to how we consider art and technology, and amplify the construction of a reality that is active and dynamic.

Her works were presented in museums in London and Stockholm, at the  Royal Dramatic Theatre, Stockholm, Sweden and The Opera House, Umeå, Sweden.
