Jenny Hval

Athi-Patra Ruga

Jenny Hval, born 1980 in Oslo, Norway, has in recent years made a name for herself as a recording artist and writer both in her native Norway and abroad. Multidisciplinary and transgressive are words often employed to describe her art, but Jenny Hval’s polyphonic artistry is in fact seamlessly interwoven between musical, literary, visual and performative modes of expression. Her artistic voice is altogether present, accessible and obscurely complex at the same time. In 2019 she released her new album „The Practice of Love“. Next to her music career, she also published three books.
