01/03/2017: Camille Norment

When: 1 March, 2017, 6pm
Where: Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Fossveien 24

Multi-media artist Camille Norment represented Norway in the 56th Venice Biennial of Art (2015), with a three-part project that included a large-scale sound and sculptural installation, a publication series, and a sonic performance series.

Norment’s artwork often uses the notion of cultural psychoacoustics as both an aesthetic and conceptual framework. She defines this term as the investigation of socio-cultural phenomena through sound and music, particularly instances of sonic and social dissonance, and sound as a force over the body, mind, and society.

18/05/2016 Rike Frank and Tirdad Zolghadr

When: May 18, 2016, 6pm
Where: Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Fossveien 24

 

Rike Frank and Tirdad Zolghadr revisit their recent project SLOHAGENHALLAH, which unfolded in Palestine on May 5, 2016 in collaboration with the art academies of Oslo, Copenhagen and Ramallah. The project was an exploration of the student show as a format and genre which is very much undertheorized and underhistoricized, and thus completely underestimated in the field of contemporary art, and even in art pegagogy itself.

20/03/2016 Ane Graff and Jan Verwoert: Ghost in the Cell

When: March 20, 2016, 6pm
Where: Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Fossveien 24

A material is always the ghost of itself; in the sense that it embodies its own multiple temporalities. Its past, present and future intertwine in what presents itself to us as an integrated whole, an opaque and static form of being. We do not see any ghosts. What we forget is that the material’s cells or molecules manifest the narrative that brought it here, in front of us. Every growth, sedimentation, and minuscule touch. And along with this manifestation, is a multitude of beginnings and potentialities, both past and future, present as traces, as energy, as whatever it is that stays after the electron jumps from its orbit, emits a blink of brilliant light, only to halter and return.
