Artist statement

Åse Løvgren is an artist working in a wide range of formats where collaboration is often at the core. Current project is "The Valley" in collaboration with Stine Gonsholt where they use the small place Dale as a prism to look at transitions in global production and economy, and how this alters our understanding of place. Recently a server farm was established inside the old textile factory in Dale, mining for Bitcoin. The video "The Valley" lets the sounds and surfaces of the landscape come to the fore, mixed with the history and current stories of Dale.

Løvgren was co-artistic research leader in "Synsmaskinen" based at the Faculty of Art, UiB (synsmaskinen.net). The research project proposes a multifaceted inquiry into contemporary crises. Together with Karolin Tampere she initiated the ongoing collaboration Rakett in 2003, which is a mobile platform for multivocal exchange through collaborative and investigative curatorial and artistic projects. She is project developer at VISP where she hosts Critics' Conversations that aims to engage a public conversation and response to art exhibitions and projects.

Current exhibitions/projects are Balkong Tromsø/Tromsø Kunstforening: Performance in collaboration with Frans Jacobi, Earth Market Stockholm curated by Mossutställningar/Stella D'Ailly, Vestlandsutstillingen 2019 curated by Marte Danielsen Jølbo, and "Nye Fortsettelser" curated by Anne Szefer Karlsen. In March she had a working residency at Bergen Centre for Electronic Art.
