China meets Norway in a bookshelf is a cultural exchange project with the purpose of promoting Norwegian art books, picture books and illustrated books in China through exhibitions, book markets, seminars, workshops and other unofficial activities. The project focuses on young artists and illustrators from or based in Norway and their works that reflecting nowadays Norwegian subcultures.

I have been very lucky to be invited to this project and will be phyiscal participating in both Shanghai and Beijing! Perhaps see you soon at abC/f (art book in China) next Thursday-Saturday at the Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum.

Back in December Rolf and I were back in Italy. Just for a quick weekend in Milano, but we were able to take some photos before flying back to Oslo. Thanks to Petra and Alberto for making us the perfect walking map!

So many beautiful architectural details and textures, not to mention the fashion. The best: leather and silk, wool and nylon, garments fabricated with mixed fabrics in the same color. So subtle and good. Updated this page.

Hei NYC

Filed under: Exhibitions, Travel

In just a few weeks I’ll be coming back to represent my new home country at the NY Art Book Fair in this year’s Norway Focus room.

At my table Jessica Williams + Friends I’ll be showing my own work, postcards from NSEW, student work made in a workshop I founded, beautiful posters from the Oslo artist space 1857, and more.

To be honest I’m pretty excited!

In 2005, now almost 10 years ago, I interned at Printed Matter. In 2006 I was a volunteer at the very first NYABF. Lots of good, funny and sweaty memories. If you’re in NYC and happen by PS1, do come in and say hi this time around.

Today started out pretty horrible but it’s slowly getting better, especially after I remembered I’m spending next week in Iceland with some pretty amazing people. I haven’t been back since 2011 and never not in the summer months.

If someone reading this is there and wants to meet up or has some vital tips (as always) get in touch.

Last week I was in Morocco with my partner and it was lovely. Pics are here (plus a new overall layout here). Right here right now it’s cold and snowy. Oslo..

In March I’m off to the USA for awhile, including a week in NYC.

Fingers crossed the weather is better there.

Tomorrow I’m off for Japan for three weeks. I’ll be in Tokyo, Osaka, and possibly Kyoto. If you live there and like to meet up, get in touch! If you don’t live there but have some tips, they are also much appreciated.

Until then: a faded tapestry, objects on books. It’s almost fall.

I’m going back to London tomorrow for the first time in almost 3 years (when this photo was taken).

If anyone reading this wants to meet up and get a coffee, email me. I’ll be in town for a week!
