JENNY BERGER MYHRE
lives in Oslo, Norway.
Jenny is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound, video and photography. Her work explores and exposes the personal in an honest and curious manner.
SOUND ART AND MUSIC
Jenny's first album Lint was released on the British labels The Lumen Lake and Canigou Records in 2017 - consisting of field recordings, fragments of melodies, bird songs, lo-fi electronics and computer generated sequences. Coming from the DIY scene in Oslo, Jenny's approach to music making is versatile and open, with an apparent love for the unpolished.
In 2019 she premiered the commissioned piece Notas y Notas y Notas... created for Borealis - en festival for eksperimentell musikk in collaboration with video artist Manuela de Laborde. The piece was developed during a residency in Mexico City and was shown in its early stage at El Nicho festival in 2018, before its world premiere at Borealis in March 2019.
Interview with Jenny at Attn:Magazine (UK):
«[Lint] is an authentic depiction of life and experience; a mixture of observation, mindful intervention and memories of varying clarity, threaded together to form the continuum of personal experience."
Review of Lint at Variable Character (DE)
"Each of the eight pieces is a tribute to the moment. Jenny Berger Myhre gives them a new context that is so different from the original one - and yet: it feels right, the feeling of intimate openness remains. A wonderful album."
Interview and write-up at Soup Of The Month (IT)
"We were struck by the freshness, the sincerity and the footprints of humanity present in this album."

In 2015 Jenny directed her first music video, and have since then worked with Jenny Hval, Håvard Volden, Broen, Girl, Monkey Plot, Mats Eilertsen and Jo David Meyer Lysne, among others. In 2019 she has been working extensively with Jenny Hval for the new multi-disciplinary piece "The Practice of Love", following Hval's release of the album with the same name.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND IMAGES
Working mainly with analogue photography, double exposure is a recurring element in Jenny's visual work. She has been working as a band and artist photographer for the past 6 years, and has a deep understanding of how to portray musicians to give a visual interpretation of their auditive expressions. Tactile textures and natural light are also central to her photographs. She has taken cover photos for Jenny Hval, Moon Relay, Listen To Girl, Propan, as well as press photos for Ashley Paul, Splashgirl, Jessica Sligter and many others.
