Sille Storihle is an artist and researcher based in Berlin, working mainly with short films and publications. She holds a BA in Fine Art from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and a MA in Aesthetics and Politics from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). Her central areas of interest include gender politics, nationalism, and history. Her research projects culminate in experimental documentaries, as reflected in the still images attached in this application. The most recent solo exhibition ONE MAN SHOW, includes The Stonewall Nation (2014) and The Tomorrow Show (2015). The exhibition draws on archival material from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries in Los Angeles, and examines the performative potential of archival documents. Using the interview format as a framework, ONE MAN SHOW engages in the telling and retelling of history by examining utopian ideas and myths concerning sexual liberation in California in the 1970s. She also runs the Oslo based platform FRANK together with the artist Liv Bugge and the art historian Mathias Danbolt. The platform aims at building community, showing contemporary art and generating discussions addressing hegemonic structures in society relating to gender and sexuality. FRANK started as a salon, but in the later years the platform has taken on more curatorial and editorial projects, as reflected in the pdf attached in the application.
