Avgang 2023: Unveil
Amalie Risom Nyrup (DK) and Sarah Sekles (DE/BR) from Art and Public Space.
Risom and Sekles ask:
Can we admire the beauty of nature while facing the consequences of environmental changes?
Driven by the challenge to work with land-art through investigations of the circle of life, where the blooming and degeneration of humans, plants and other species play a crucial role. Amalie Risom Nyrup and Sarah Sekles constantly have the wish to create a holistic symbiosis beyond nature-culture. They seek to push the boundaries of understanding the dependency on these complicated relations with interest in the potential of ecocriticism within interdisciplinary mediums inside art, science, and literature. Their artistic working methods with the natural world implement working in the process, where the exhibited visual outcomes will be developed with time. This notion of time is directed by the natural cycle of life.
Since the autumn of 2022, the two graduating students of the master’s Program Art and Public Space at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) had the Botanical Gardens in and around Natural History Museum as a research area. The result is an exhibition entitled Unveil, which shows art projects installed outdoors in the Botanical Gardens and gallery space at the Natural History Museum. The exhibition is complex and contextualizes the entangled relationship between life and nature.
The exhibition has a closed opening Thursday, 25th May 2023. All are welcome!
There will be an opening reception Thursday, 25th May 2023. Meet at the picnic lawn in the botanical gardens at 16.00 for tours of the works and an opening celebration.
Sign up to take part, and for further information, contact: Risom.email@example.com
The exhibition can be visited within the opening hours of the Natural History Museum (10 - 17) and Botanical Gardens (7 - 21).
The exhibition is supported by the Oslo National Academy of the Arts and in collaboration with Natural History Museum.
