I made Conversations back in 2012 for a play called Alexander (Hålogaland teater, directed by Jon Tombre), But it has been travelling quite a bit ever since. If I would be smart I would make more of these simple and fun projects, light and compact in transport, easy to adapt in size too. Anyway this time the chairs are on their way to ZHI Art Museum in Chengdu for an exhibition called YI - A Chair. I made an elaborate install manual so I don't need to travel.
Last night I made a time machine. It allows to travel instantly to any place in time, and to change the past.
Last Monday première of New Religion with a new and hopefully bulletproof version of the Nevel installation. Great choreography by Mathilde Caeyers.
Yes, the exhibition on Sara Fabricius finally opened after being pandemically postponed 50 times. The third floor, the archive, will open later though, somewhere in Autumn. Come & see: Perspektivet museum, Tromsø.
I made this cast of a crying child 2 years a ago for 'Dette Barnet', a play where the actors were making heads in sand live on stage (Det Norske Teatret, directed by Jon Tombre). But this particular cast was too complex. Happy it found it's use in this exhibition about Sara Fabricius at Perspektivet museum.
Working with Gabor and Mari on the total makeover of Nevel. New mechanics, new electronics, no more wireless interference traumas and exploding batteries this time. The installation will be used in 'New Religion', a new choreography by Mathilde Caeyers.
Installation and exhibition design for Hamsunsenter in Norway based on the SULT novel by Knut Hamsun. Prototyping in 2021, installation on site in 2022.
New version of the old 'NEVEL' installation 02004 in the making for 'New Religion', a dance performance by Mathilde Caeyers, première in June 2021.
New year, new lock down, new president, new light in my office.
As Mister Weinberger puts it in 'EVERYDAY CHAOS': 'We need to give up on our insistence of always understanding our world and how things happen in it. We humans have long been under the impression that if we can understand the immutable laws of how things happen, we will be able to perfectly predict, plan for and manage the future. Yet we live in a universe where EVERYHING INFLUENCES EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME, AT ONCE.
