Ina Otzko b. 1972  in Alsta, an island at 66°N. Otzko holds a dual Master’s from the Image and Communication (2004) and Fine Art (2007) programs at Goldsmiths College in London and an additional Master’s degree in Sound Studies (2012) from Berlin University of Arts, UdK. Otzko was the first recipient of Twendeprisen / Twende Art Award in 2018, for her work as an artist and her engagement with the arts in Northern-Norway and abroad. Her works are exhibited internationally including countries as Norway, Russia, Iceland, Italy, Sweden, UK, Germany, China, France, Canada along with presentations in Paris Photo, London Art Fair and Cosmoscow. She participates frequently in Residency programs  in Norway and abroad. Otzko currently lives and works in Norway & Italy.

Ina Otzko is an interdisciplinary artist and a nomadic soul. Her oeuvre presents contemplations on the human condition and behavior and is influenced by philosophy, mysticism and symbolism. Her inspiration is drawn from her extensive journeys set against research of mankind’s encounter with time and space. Through practical and theoretical processes she investigates the complexity between memory and experience, reality and representation, human behaviour and spiritual ecology. She moves between employing analogue and digital technology, an exchange which offers alternative ways of reflecting upon time and ownership of ones body and earth.

Ina Otzko is co-initiator and director of ABH/ ArtBase Helgeland 66°N and its international AiR-Exchange program in collaboration with Kari Elfstedt, curates and produces exhibitions and public art projects. She is chairwoman for NNBK / The Association of North Norwegian Visual Artists since 2015 and member of the Artistic Advisory Board of LIAF / Lofoten International Art Festival since 2012. Board Member for NBK / Association of Norwegian Visual Artists since 2019. Founder, curator and organiser of 100 Norwegian Photographers and The Hour of Man.

__________________________________

Ina Otzkos kunstnerskap er influert av filosofi, mystikk og symbolisme. Hun er en nomadisk sjel som gjennom reiser, personlig søken etter spirituell og emosjonell transformasjon, utforsker menneskets møte med tid og rom og evne av tilstedeværelse. I sine praktiske og teoretiske prosesser undersøker hun mellomrom, kompleksiteten mellom minne og erfaring, virkelighet og representasjon, menneskets adferd og spirituell økologi. Hun beveger seg mellom å benytte analog og digital teknologi, en veksling som åpner for alternative måter å reflektere over tid og rom og eierskap til kroppen og jorden.
