Welcome to exhibition opening at Gallery Seilduken 1 (Fossveien 24, National Academy of the Arts Oslo) Thursday 30 March 17.00-19.00
Opening hours 1 april 13.00 – 16.00, 2 April 11.00 – 14.00
Taking in consider imaginary worlds who is strongly connected to history as much as they are present in the contemporary world. Enigmatic stories are to be told through archival travels to the north and south poles, ancient collections and imaginary libraries to the story of an unknown eccentric object-maker who seems to live in the past but in a world far from our own who in the end of the story dies (though not in vain). Everything told and shown through a constant repetition of sound, text images.
The installation is much of a work in progress, where I have during a time been further investigating imaginary thinking and association in relation to remote/foreign places or this time infinite rooms filled with infinite knowledge.
Things can be moved and stories may change even with the simplest gesture.
