For all food and art lovers out there: I’ll be running at 2-day workshop as Hverdag Books at Low Standards next weekend (16-17 November) that will culminate in a collaborative creative cookbook by 12 participants. Also on view will be my most recent Riso-printed publication series “Intimate Narratives” and a few Riso prints to inspire the workshop.
Spots are unfortunately all filled up, but it couldn’t hurt to email Low Standards to see if there is a waitlist. On the Sunday, November 18, there will be a book launch and potluck open to the public.
February 4, 2018 This week in Oslo
Two events I’m involved with are coming up this week, both at educational institutions.
First, on Thursday, February 8: Every shore is a treasury at Westerdals ACT’s library.
As part of Westerdal’s Zero-Waste Day, I’ll be giving a short talk about my Oslofjord project and donating part of my collection of beach plastic to a workshop in collaboration with Seabling.
Then on Saturday, February 10: I’ve contributed a poster to a large group exhibition at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
The theme of the show is #metoo and my poster is a cheeky presentation of an actual line fed to me (by a member of the administration) while I was a student: “Why can’t you just shut up and be a good girl?” Sigh.
December 6, 2016 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! 😉
Riso A3 newsprint test (EZ-571) in 1-2-3-4 colors: Black, Blue, Yellow, Crimson
October 2, 2015 Print it with Riso!
In just one month I’ll be in Bergen teaming up with Ann-Kristin Stølan and London’s Hato Press to give a workshop.
Spanning almost five weeks and over three distinct parts, the workshop will give an introduction and the means needed to make a Risograph printed publication featuring one’s own work. Participants at the workshop will also have a booth at the Bergen Art Book Fair (November 19-22) where they can showcase and sell their books.
The first part of the workshop will take place on Friday, October 23. More info and lots of beautiful photos – I’m inspired to make a new zine just looking at them – are here.
