Kristoffer Zeiner

Zeiner graduated from the Oslo Academy of Art (BA) 2012-2015, and the
Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam (MA) 2015-2017. He is also the head of
the publisher JohnJohnBooks, which was started in 2018. His background
originates from architecture and design. During his studies, his practice
has developed further into sculpture and site-specific installations. The
artistry today consists mainly of sculptural works, often produced in
plastic and other man-made materials. Zeiner's work focuses on identity,
contemporary materiality, and the object's communicative functions. He often
emphasizes around concepts of artificial representations of nature.
