BRYNHILD BYE-TILLER (b. 1968) is a visual artist and a photographer. She lives and works in Trondheim and started as a professional artist in the 90's. She works with documentary photography and participation. Her practice alternates between a narrative expression and participatory activities. Her participatory projects are site specific, public and ephemeral. Her narrative work is dedicated to documenting issues like gender, identity, cultural stereotypes, social justice, migration and racism. She attempts to give a voice to those who are not heard. To show the sides of life many people would not be able to experience otherwise. She attempts to break down stereotypes and boundaries between us and the "others".

She has a collaborative approach to her art projects. She collaborates with public institutions, organizations, associations, volunteers, individuals, groups, artists and other professionals.

She has an education from NTNU - Norwegian University of Science and Technology (1996), Academy of Arts in Trondheim (1990-95) and Iceland Academy of the Arts (1992) She has completed a number of projects and exhibitions, both in Norway, Europe & the Middle East.
