Statement

Sletteland explores the human relationship to the environment and the friction created between the individual and what is around it. The artworks arise out of a desire to express the complexity of being a physical, breathing and sentient individual, with the world as both backdrop and part of the self at the same time. Architecture, space and body are of interest, and she works in a variety of media. These are often materials associated with the construction and building industry such as polyfilla, ceramic tiles, concrete and fiberglass. This sometimes creates a dialogue with the room and often there is a site-specific element in the works. The works physical effect on the viewer is central as this creates contact between an intuitive and intellectual understanding.
