The exhibition will be featuring old and new works. The installation stages a dialogue with the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, especially his “Girl Interrupted at Her Music” (ca. 1658-59). Through a meditation on temporality - the continuous manifestations and interruptions of time - Christensen explores the conditions of human life and finitude and the fluid boundaries between symbolic form and speechless, non-human materiality.
Jeannette Christensen lives and works in Oslo and is educated at Vestlandets Kunstakademi in Bergen and École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She was selected for P.S.1 International Studio Program in New York 1992-93. The book Fragments of Matter written by the Dutch cultural theorist and artist Mieke Bal on Jeannette Christensen was published in 2009. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Norway and abroad and has been teaching since 1998. She currently holds a professorship at The National Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo, KHIO.
