Tori Wrånes is a vocalist and artist and has a transmedial artistic practice, which unfolds as performance, sculptures, videos or installations. Her use of sounds, musical instruments, costumes, props, architecture, and sculptures deforms her appearance and creates new rituals and dreamlike constellations. Choreography with sound might be a good way to describe her work, be it solo or with multiple performers, like opera-singers on bikes, musicians in a chairlift, or a singing rock.

Recent solo shows are BIG WATER at Accelerator, Stockholm, (2022), Mussel Tears at Shulamit Nazarian Gallery, Los Angeles (2022), GARDEN of LEFTHAND, Lilith Performance Studio, Malmö (2022), HANDMADE ACOUSTICS (2018) at Ujazdowski Castle for Contemporary Art in Warszawa; Tori Wrånes at Göteborg Konstmuseum (2019); Hot Pocket (2017) at Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; Ancient Baby (2017), Kunsthal Charlottenborg Denmark; FLUTE WARRIORS (2017), w/Red Comunitaria Trans, Bogotà, Colombia; DRASTIC PANTS (2016), Carl Freedman Gallery London. Commissioned performances are STONE and SINGER (2014), 19Th Biennale of Sydney (2014); YES NIX (2013), PERFORMA 13 New York; NAAM YAI (2018), Thailand Biennale. WHEN YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME YOU HAVE TO RETHINK in collaboration with Ayodeji Adewale Yaro, Lagos Biennalen, Nigeria. She has shown at Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka; Dhaka Art Seminars, Dhaka Bangladesh; CCA Lagos, Nigeria; The Eccentrics, Sculpture Center, New York.
