Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 26. september 2020 --

Currently I'm working on a collaboration with fellow artist Lucila Mayol called 'Archaeological Fiction: Sagfjordbotn'. In its final form the work will take the form of Interactive Fiction with field recordings. In other words, a computer-based reading experience that the reader/listener (You) can interact with via text. The project is focused on gossip, obsolescence and what stories get to be told.

My studio is based at aerial.

aerial is an artist-run space with a focus on socially engaged art practices.

aerial is organised by three artists: Gentian Meikleham, Laurie Lax and Stacy Brafield. Together, their interests orbit around care, conversation, food, pedagogy, production and publishing. Gentian, Laurie and Stacy invite you to pop by to have a chat.

During b-open aerial will be hosting a workshop, an art raffle and selling plant babies to raise funds for our kitchen!
