JAKOB OREDSSON–Symbiotic Stories PETRINE VINJE–Surfacing Solids
Galleri F 15
Symbiotic Stories (Alby Always Already) is part of Jakob Oredssons artistic research project Scenography as Symbiosis at Norwegian Theatre Academy in Fredrikstad. The project’s research questions interrelate with theories on expanded scenography, challenging this notion from within.
Symbiotic Stories (Alby Always Already) seeks to exist in solidarity and symbiosis with Alby, with the intimate and the distant. Simultaneously bringing the landscape into the gallery as well as the gallery into the landscape, existing ambiguously at the same time inside and outside, here and there. How does Alby always already exist through interwoven Symbiotic Stories?
The exhibition Surfacing Solids displays the results of Petrine Vinje’s ongoing artistic research project as a doctoral fellow in the Art & Craft Department at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. In her PhD project, she explores how cultural memories and sculptural works are created within the relationships between people, technology, and society.
In this exhibition, a museum artefact serves as an aggregator of artworks and research concerning cultural memories derived from archaeology, architecture, materials, science, and myths. The museum artefact, a lead amulet from the Middle Ages, is disseminated by means of freestanding sculptures, installations and a film.
Press previews of the exhibitions can be arranged with director Dag Aak Sveinar.
