On the horizon

Filed under: Etc, Exhibitions

So many things have been going on the last few months, leaving this blog sadly neglected. Or maybe it was just the lack of daylight that kept me in bed? Either way, now that spring is nearing, I am furiously working on a few projects coming up..

In May I will be in a two person show with Annie Bielski at High Tide in Philadelphia. Really looking forward to this as I will finally unveil the installation component to my project Digital Images of the Physical World. We’ve also been both writing texts AND I’ll be there for the opening. Come and say hi, last time I was on the East Coast was in 2014!

In June, I will be exhibiting every single fanzine, book and miscellaneous printed matter I have ever produced at the fantastic Deichmanske Grünerløkka here in Oslo. Since I’ve been doing this since the age of 15, it’s going to be a very generous and ambitious show.

Right now I am also in the process of scanning them all for a new website I will make in tandem to the exhibition. Above is a spread from 2007’s Some Thoughts, which was coincidentally last displayed at the New Museum’s Younger than Jesus: Live Archive.

More info and invites soon.

NUMER 111

Filed under: Etc

In newsstands soon: I’m mentioned in an article about the Bergen Art Book Fair in the newest edition of Tengerforbundet‘s magazine NUMER. Thank you to Cecilie for including me! It’s an honor and I am in very good company. It’s also maybe time to start drawing again and make a zine..

Klimafestivalen

Filed under: Exhibitions

Just a few days before it started, I learned about Klimafestivalen § 112, or the Norweigan Climate festival. The festival takes place at self-organized locations all over the country and many of them look quite exciting. Oddly enough, (or maybe not?) not that many artists are involved so I’m very happy to be a part with a new installtion of my Oslofjord project. Despite me not figuring out some Facebook things until today, the team there have been so responsive considering yesterday was the big opening. A good overview of the next nine days’ events can be found here.

Luckily, Wizard was up for the extremely short notice and next Thursday and Friday I’ll be having a mini exhibiton there. For more information (på norsk), check the Facebook event.

I’ll be there from 13.00 – 17.00 both Friday and Saturday 27-28/1.

The entrace to Wizard is the same as Mir, just one floor above. Toftes gate 69 in Grünnerløkka.

Snacks and homemade fermented coffee will be served. Books will also be for sale.

Tromsø

Last week I was in Tromsø and helped hold a mini-Riso workshop with Tanya Busse. Despite the tiny daily window for light before the all-consuming darkness, it was super cozy thanks to all the great people who I oddly have no photos of. That’s how it goes staring at computer screens all day and printing all night! 😉

Photos from the 2016 Bergen Art Book Fair. Half by me and half taken by the lovely people that put on BABF. More here!

Up top is me posing with the Issue Press‘ fantastic George Weitor. Halfway through the fair we spread out over two half tables and I found (uh-oh) some rock-like styrofoam bits to use as price stands. Down at the very bottom is me speaking about my 15-year long self-publishing practice.

Thank you to everyone who bought / traded / looked at my books! Thanks also for saying hi, sharing good conversations, leading me to the coffee, not fidgeting on phones while I spoke, etc. Last but not least, thank you to Oslo Kommune Kulturetaten for supporting the trip. I actually found out right after coming home, which also means that some exciting things are now on the horizon for Hverdag..

Nature or plastic?

Made a new online piece / game (?!). It works on mobile devices, but if you click on the natural stone, you’ll be automatically taken to the next “level” instead of getting the elusive green smiley face hover. Try it here.

Next Thursday in Oslo

Isolation
Galleri Storck
September 29 – October 23, 2016
Opening reception: Thursday, September 29. 6-9pm.

Over the course of almost a year, Jessica Williams has steadily gathered polystyrene and plastic on the islands of the inner Oslofjord: plastic pieces that have been formed by the sun and the waves appear as shells and small stones. The exhibition consists of a selection of her collection, as well as a new book of photographs taken on-site. The project is a reflection of the artist’s connection to gathering, maturing, and what it is to begin again in a new country and learn a new language.

The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway.

 

Isolasjon
Galleri Storck
29. september – 23. oktober 2016
Vernissage torsdag 29. september 2016 kl 18:00-21:00

I snart ett år har Jessica Williams sanket isopor og plast på øyene i indre Oslofjord; biter formet av sol og bølger fremstår som skjell og småstein. Utstillingen viser et utvalg av det hun har samlet, samt en bokutgivelse av fotografier fra områdene hun har vært. Prosjektet reflekterer over kunstnerens forbindelse til sanking, modning, og hva det vil si å begynne på nytt i et fremmed land og måtte lære et nytt språk.

Utstillingen er støttet av Kulturrådet.
