Avgang 2022: Brennande vatn
Eli Mai Huang Nesse presenterer sitt avgangsprosjekt i master biletkunst, på Black Box, KHiO.
Ein ukjent skapning skutt i 2006,
ein papegøye som motbeviser alle,
eit bær som berre dreper dei rike
og ein flygande kvalp.
An unfamiliar creature shot in 2006,
a parrot that proves us all wrong,
a berry that only kills the rich
and a flying puppy.
Brennande vatn is an installation made with sound, light and darkness. Welcome to the MFA graduation show from the Academy of Fine Art in Oslo by Eli Mai Huang Nesse.

Is the tomato a vegetable, fruit or a berry? Does it matter? Eli is interested in the ambiguous and contradictory, not knowing if something is sad or funny, good or bad. To make the feeling of ambivalence linger and let something stay unclear or as twilight between opposites. This is portrayed through the use of storytelling, film, performance and installations. Her last video work was about the unwanted gift, how something meant to spread joy can become a burden.
Late opening/early finnisage: Friday 4th / 19-22
