Franciska Eliassen’s works explore ecofeminism, geopolitics and our relation to nature. While doing her BA in film at the Nordland University College of Art and Film in Lofoten, she built a hut of soil in the mountains where she lived for one and a half year. Known as «Norway’s most primitive art residency» people now live there for free to connect to nature. She is now doing a MA in fine arts at the National Academy of art, combining it with studies in philosophy and interdisciplinary ecology.
