The MA Degree Show in Fine Art 2014 takes place at Bergen Kunsthall from 11 Aapril to 4 May. The title is “MEAGHEA SKKLL RKGM MAH TNCA”.

This year the MA Degree Show in Fine Art at Bergen Kunsthall presents the work of 23 artists entering the final stages of the two-year study programme at Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

The work exhibited encompasses a wide range of artistic practice including painting, sculpture, film, animation, photography, installation, sound and performance.

This exhibition may be understood as a collective portrait of a group of emerging artists who have spent a crucial period of their development in each other’s company.

These graduates come from diverse professional backgrounds, cultures, and different experiences. This exhibition provides a glimpse into the practice of these twenty-three artists at a pivotal point in their careers.

Alternative Guided Tours
The exhibitors have decided to invite the visitors to the MA Degree Show to engage in discussions about their work by offering a series of alternative guided tours and public events throughout the duration of the Degree Show.

The candidates will be inviting professionals and specialists from diverse fields to give guided tours based on their interpretation of the works through their own specialist area of knowledge.

Evighetens avkom

EVIGHETENS AVKOM er en skildring av to parallelle landskap – En skikkelses rundgang gjennom et landskap hinsides naturen: I et landskap liggende parallellt med det synelige.

Margrethe Kolstad Brekke and Elin Øyen Vister
Radio Hopes and Dreams – Lab For Ecological Transistion

Elin Øyen Vister /Child of Klang, (b. 1976), is a Norwegian artist currently completing her MFA at the art academy in Bergen, Norway. She completed the Nordic Sound Art programme in 2012, and has a background in djìng and radio. Since 2010, she has been partly based in the Røst archipelago, the outermost part of Lofoten, Northern Norway.

Øyen Vister is working with field recording, sound installation, multichannel and stereo sound work, performance, live improvisation, sound for film as well as site specific sound interventions. She is occupied with listening as a practice, in ways of composing, sensing and experiencing the world; much inspired by the american philospher and composer Pauline Oliveros Deep Listening practice.

One of her ongoing projects, Soundscape Røst, investigates and documents the rapidly changing natural and cultural sound environments of the Røst archipelago, as a result of the ongoing global environmental crisis and the increasing neo liberal state politics of Norway.

Øyen Vister adresses topics of ecological transistion and the global loss of biodiversity through her artistic practice and takes a queer eco feminist perspective when looking closer into the very often disfunctional nature-culture relation, and human-non human and human-human relations. She is the founder of Røst AIR – an interdisiplinary, ecologogical artist in residency and artist association, founded in 2012, situated on Skomvær island, Røst.

Georgia Rodger
Pulse Sequence

I’ve been working with the idea of performative making; a transformative process where the focus is on the act of making itself. In parallel to the creation of a physical sculpture, I loop and layer sounds to make a cumulative composition, overlaying the first moment with layer upon layer so that these past moments remain present and animated. In this live metamorphosis, body, sound and material come together in time to create a multi-dimensional whole.

A Liminal Dwelling - Esther Tuypens

Tue, 04/08/2014 - 11:37

During a short talk, Esther Tuypens will discuss Apichaya Wanthiang’s exhibition Without Waiting for Her Reply in relation to her research on Aby Warburg. The talk will put forth some ideas concerning the installation as an object and producer of knowledge.

Much like Warburg’s Bilderatlas Mnemosyne, it creates a Denkraum, a space for thought that unfolds between two modes of relating to the world and to history, namely immersion and reflection. As a liminal space between poetry and philosophy, the installation plays on making present what is physically distant and unobtainable. After the talk, the artist and her collaborators will enter into a group discussion about the installation and the creative process behind it.

Esther Tuypens (b. 1988, Belgium) obtained a master degree in Theater and Film Studies (2011) and an advanced master degree in Theater Studies (2012) at the University of Antwerp. In October 2012 she became a research fellow for the Flanders Research Foundation (FWO), and is currently preparing a Ph.D. entitled Restoring Gestures: Exploring Aby Warburg’s Method for Theater Studies at the Research Center for Visual Poetics at UA.

Work Study at Rom8

Thu, 04/03/2014 - 14:03

Exhibition at Vaskerelven 8,
3. – 13. April 2014.

Opening on Thursday, 3. April, 5 -7 pm.

The involved artists met through the artistic research project Topographies of the Obsolete. Elements of the dialogue on Work Study are transferred from a former ceramic factory in England to the laboratory like situation of ROM8 in Bergen. Recording systems and notations from working processes formed the starting point for examining and acting out the absurdity of lost production and working community on site. The artists were dialogue partners in several periods throughout 2013 in Stoke-on-Trent, and bring together elements which individually have developed since for a continuing discours.

BIRTH - an exhibition by Ane Lan

Tue, 04/01/2014 - 17:45

In the exhibition Birth a male artist takes Kristeva´s word for it and let his artistic alias Ane Lan assume the role of creator and protector of a child. Through video, drawings, photography, odour, sound installation and performance the artist tries out future perceptions of gender and reproduction. Ane Lan defies biology and our culture to indulge himself into the desire and the experience of giving birth to a child.

Opening hours Thursday – Sunday 14 – 18

March 29th – April 27th

KNIPSU
Komediebakken 9, Bergen

Julia Kristeva argues in Stabat Mater (1977) for a new discourse around Maternity that expands, investigates, and familiarize itself with the notion of maternal experiences and functions regardless of traditional beliefs based on religious ideals or biological facts. Maternity should not be limited to the terms mother, feminine or woman, says Kristeva, and introduce a definition of the mother as a pure function, where one is held accountable through action. By this Kristeva opens up for an understanding that everyone can fulfill the maternal role.

In the exhibition Birth a male artist takes Kristeva´s word for it and let his artistic alias Ane Lan assume the role of creator and protector of a child. Through video, drawings, photography, odour, sound installation and performance the artist tries out future perceptions of gender and reproduction. Ane Lan defies biology and our culture to indulge himself into the desire and the experience of giving birth to a child.

In the video My Baby this is made possible through modern technology and surrogacy. In a laboratory Ane Lan is dressed as nurse and sings a love song to the child he is about to conceive. The art work senses the outline of an irreversible development of genetic engineering and artificial insemination methods that circumvent established laws of Nature.

The video installation Birth consists of two syncronized projections. One shows Ane Lan giving birth alone in a hospital room. The other one displays a birth with a “real” woman with nurses and doctors present. The solitude of Ane Lan suggest that he is being caught up by our cultural resistance to let go of established truths. Both videos are staged, yet only one is perceived as realistic.

On the wall hangs drawings of infants. They carry the name of each of the seven Church Fathers who introduced Virgin Mary, the virgin birth, and the infant as an important element in Christian theology. According to Kristeva the consolidation of Virgin Mary with Mother, Woman, Feminine as subcategories, is an idealization so deeply established in our culture that it occurs in society as a perpetual dogma used to control women’s lives.

The exhibition alerts impending upheavals when the distant Science of reproduction achieves a breakthrough that shakes the foundations of our existence, while it also can be read as a stance for all genders right to the role of caregiver.

At the opening there will be a one-to-one performance entitled The Hidden Mother.

The exhibition is supported by the Norwegian Arts Council, Fund for sound and imagery, Bergen City, Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond and BEK

Ane Lan (b.1972) is educated at the Art Academy in Oslo (2002) and works within the fields of art, performance, music and experimental film/video. He has participated in numerous International exhibitions at institutions such as The Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC, Artes, Sao Paulo, The 51st Venice Biennial and the 10th Istanbul Biennial.

In Norway he has held solo shows at the Fotogalleriet in Oslo, Galleri F15 in Moss and Henie Onstad Art Centre in Oslo. He has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions nationally and internationally at institutions such as KODE, Sørlandets Art Museum, Sztuki Museum in Poland, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Rosario in Argentina. Ane Lan lives and works in Oslo.

Sun, 03/30/2014 - 11:30

Sound installation by Katy Penny, where BEK develops the interactive side of the installation. A door is placed in the middle of the room, it can be opened and closed, but you can also walk around it. What you choose affects the soundscape of the installation.

At Galleri VOX the 22. – 30. March 2014

The installation is designed so that visitors are encouraged to actively relate to the sounds in the room, since their own actions affect what happens. The focus is on human interaction and power relations. The experience is characterized, possibly broken by the actions of other people in the room. The exhibition will be experienced differently about visiting it alone or in a group .

The installation also puts focus on what it is that creates a space, this space is not defined by walls but by the sounds and human interaction.

- a door – Interaktiv lydinstallasjon av Katy Penny på Galleri VOX from Trond Elling Haveland on Vimeo.

Stian Remvik at BEK will develop solutions previously used by Jana Vinderen and Trond Lossius in the installation " The Art of Walking on Water " ( 2004-2006 ). Here, sensors are used to trigger different sounds and soundscapes as a result of the public’s footprint.

The exhibition opens Saturday 22 March 2014 on Gallery VOX. Katy Penny is holding a concert at the opening, where the installation itself becomes the instrument. The audience will be involved in designing the concert in that they affect the sounds Katy has to work with. The concert will also include Tor Erik Olsen on guitar .

Thanks to Lydgalleriet for using their speakers.

WITHOUT WAITING FOR HER REPLY

Sat, 03/29/2014 - 03:07

Opening 4th of April at 23:00
4-13th of April from 23:00-02:00
Talk by Esther Tuypens, 10th April at 20:00 at USF-visningrommet

Without waiting for her reply continues Apichaya Wanthiang’s investigation into the themes of memory, experience, and the spatiotemporal conditions that define them. During a nocturnal exhibition, the visitor is guided through, and immersed in a narrative landscape, where isolated individuals relate to each other in a newly established continuum.

After having explored the boundaries of the two-dimensional canvas, gradually moving her abstract shapes outside of the picture frame, Apichaya’s painterly language is now fully materialized in an architectural space. The geometrical shapes that characterized her painting’s formal language now seem to envelop the viewer completely as she moves around in a structure reminiscent of so-called rest houses that are frequently found in the landscape of a Thai rice field. The installation creates a meeting place between the community of spectators and the artist’s native community in Thailand, whose day-to-day life and activities are registered in a series of contemplative and still images. Complemented by live-stream footage of the village’s landscapes gradually awakening under the rising sun, the installation allows for a presentification of those rhythms, stories, customs and myths that govern this rural community. In these small and concrete encounters, new worlds unfold, worlds where we exist only in relation to others, where the personal opens a space for thought and experience, and where we find the promise of new communities, collectively imagined and temporarily fulfilled.

Warp and weft

Tue, 03/25/2014 - 10:37

Performance for the Borealis Festival by Idunn Aune Forland and Anne Marthe Dyvi on Wednesday the 19th and Thursday the 20th of March at Oestre in Bergen.

The origin of this exploration of weaving came from an interest in the transition between technologies. How the weaving and textile industry has been a hotbed for the computer industry, and where many elements from the old technology cross over into the new. The performance with a loom is an attempt to discover, through art, what the terms duration and time can contain, how technology can be seen as a long woven thread through history with many tracks that it drags along. In term of form this becomes a motion on the scale between the condensed and the strung-out, between light and darkness, between man and machine. For the Borealis festival has Anne Marthe Dyvi invited the artist Idunn Aune Forland to weave and – together with Dyvi – be both instrument and performer.
The performance is produced in cooperation with BEK, Bergen Centre for electronic art for the Borealis festival.

ToBe Continued

Sun, 03/23/2014 - 21:32

In conjunction with world Turberkolosis day, ToBe Continued is an original concert lasting 24 hours, during which musicians from many parts of the World will be connected to a website that will broadcast their concerts. BEK will both host a listeningstation for the event, and host one of the acts participating. Link to stream

Espen Sommer Eide and Mari Kvien Brunvoll will perform on live streaming from BEK from 16.30-17.00.

ToBe Continued is an original concert lasting 24 hours (from 00.00 hours to the midnight of March 24th). During this un-interrupted 24 hour marathon (ToBe Continued… in fact) each musician has at disposal a 30-minute window, thus creating a relay of sounds and rhythms that will range from the different streams of the “new music”. The event, that will cover the 24th of March, World TB Day, in its entirety, is coordinated by Antonio Della Marina, musician and computer music composer, and by Moreno Miorelli, artistic director of the annual gathering “Stazione di Topolò/Postaja Topolove”. The whole initiative is under the aegis of the Global Health Incubator, the ‘laboratory’ established in July 2009 in Topolo’ by Mario Raviglione (WHO director of Stop TB Department) to create links between the world of creativity and that of science.

The participating musicians will perform live from many different countries: from Chile, Costarica, Perù, New Zealand, China, Iran, India, Mexico, Venezuela, USA, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, Lebanon, Georgia, Turkey and many European countries (Russia, Ukraina, Belarus, Latvia, Spain, France, Slovenja, Greece, Romania, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Makedonia, Albania, Norway, Switzerland, Slovakia, Ceska Republika, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Hungary, Sweden), creating a symbolical tour of the world with 48 stops, starting and ending in Topolò.

Anybody can listen to ToBe Continued…,as long as an internet connection is available, by connecting to the website www.stazioneditopolo.it This year project also includes several public listening points (bars, libraries, cultural centers, art galleries, shops, all listed on the website) that will broadcast the concert. Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB in English and TBC in Italian) is a curable disease. However, it is often underestimated, if not totally ignored, as a major human scourge, although it is globally the leading cause of death from an infectious disease, causing the loss of 1.7 million people each year, 4000 every day, with thousands of unnecessary victims also in the richest countries every year.

The project ToBe Continued…is also part of the initiatives organized by Stop TB Italia to commemorate World TB Day. The event has the help to Eli Lilly MDR-TB Partnership and Otsuka and the collaboration with UNIKUM – Culture Centre of the University of Klagenfurt, that will provide the facilities for the coordination of the concerts.

Seminar: Surround lyd

Fri, 03/21/2014 - 13:30

Atelier Nord ANX hosts a one-day seminar on surround sound recordings.

Gisle Tveito, Trond Lossius and Jana Winderen will reflect on their experience recording in surround. Anyone interested in sound recordings, and in particular surround sound recording for music, sound art, film, etc., are invited to join in and share thoughts, ideas and experience, or just meet up for discussions on recording and working with surround sound in general. Presentations are in Norwegian.

Free entrance.

Gisle Tveito

Gisle Tveito har lang erfaring med filmlyd, både som lyddesigner og som mikser. I de siste årene er han kanskje mest kjent for Joachim Trier og Eskil Vogt’s filmer hvor lydfortellingene ofte har en sentral plass. Han er leder for lydavdelingen på Storyline.

5.1 har vært arbeidsformatet siden 1994. Han vil snakke om hvilke erfaringer han har gjort når det gjelder de utfordringer man møter når man skal produsere lyd for film. Hvilke opptaksteknikker og formater egner seg for å produsere et godt og narrativt lydbilde. Han vil vise noen eksempler fra bl.a. de kinoaktuelle filmene Blind og Kraftidioten.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0878475/
http://storyline.no

Trond Lossius

Trond Lossius undersøker sammenhenger mellom lyd, rom og sted i installasjoner og andre tverrkunstneriske prosjekter, og arbeider også med forskning og programvareutvikling. Han er basert i Bergen, hvor han er FOU-koordinator ved BEK – Bergen senter for elektronisk kunst.

De senere årene har han gjort mye felt-opptak som surround (ambisonic) opptak, særlig fra drabantbymiljøer. Slike ikke-steder er gjerne anonyme og uspektakulære og unndrar seg oppmerksomhet, men lydlandskapene har mange fine kvaliteter med en blanding av urban støy og naturlyd. Han vil gi eksempler på hvilke typer opptak jhan er interessert i og hvorfor, pågående utprøvinger for å kunne arbeide med slike opptak som formbart lydlig materiale i videre bearbeiding, og hvordan han har benyttet dem i kunstneriske prosjekter siste året. Han vurderer at denne praksisen er relatert til, men ulik, lyddesign for film.

http://trondlossius.no

Jana Winderen

Jana Winderen har i over 20 år arbeidet med lyd i installasjoner, konserter og gjort lyd utgivelser på ulike formater, også lyd til film. De siste 8 årene har hun arbeidet spesiellt med lyd landskap tatt opp under vann og fra frekvensområder vi i utgangspunktet ikke hører.

Hun vil snakke om hvordan hun arbeider med surround opptak, både over og under vann, hvorfor og hvordan det er interessant. Hun vil også presentere et par eksempler på hvordan hun har arbeidet med surround i installasjoner hun har gjort i det siste på MoMA i New York og i utendørs 50 høytalers installasjonen The Morning Line i Istanbul.

Obamix i Gamle Rådhus

Tue, 02/18/2014 - 11:40

Fredag 14. februar vart Gamle Rådhus nytta som konsertlokale – kanskje for første gong. Det 500 år gamle renessansebygget har ei lang og dramatisk historie med brannar, halshogging og politiske feidar. Fredag kveld vart huset på Rådstuplassen igjen ”satt i fyr” med framføringa av Obamix, eit storslått nytt musique concrète-verk for vokal med utdrag av tre av Barack Obama sine viktigaste talar.

Med Obamix, skaper Langham Research Centre og sopran Alwynne Pritchard venleik av Barack Obama sine håpefulle ord. Musikken blir til gjennom lesing mellom linjene av talane frå Obama sin første presidentperiode. Obamix tek føre seg den blomstrande retorikken til Obama, med ein libretto beståande av fire av Obama sine mest avgjerande talar. Det inviterer publikum til å spørje etter den antatte koreografien i talar, og korleis kroppsspråket tener orda våre.

Obamix består av live vokal og manipulerte lydopptak, og undersøkjer mekanikken i stemmer og maskiner.

Program:
Aria med Fontana mix (Cage, 1958) for solo vokal med tre utøvarar
Cartridge Music (Cage, 1960)
Obamix (LRC, Pritchard, 2009-12) for sopran og tapemaskiner

Langham Research Centre starta opp i 2003 med siktemål å halde liv i prosessane og gløden til musique concréte (lydar frå den verkelege verda, som blir tatt opp på lydband og bearbeidd elektronisk). Dei har spelt på Borealisfestivalen, Tate Modern og Coliseum i London, og har urframført fleire av John Cage sine elektroniske verk. Langham Research Centre lagar musikk frå tradisjonen etter Radiophonic Workshops, med bruk av ”reel-to-reel” tapemaskiner, sinusbølge-oscillatorer og andre vintagemaskiner.
Alwynne Pritchard er ein britisk komponist, vokalist, og kunstnarisk leiar i Borealisfestivalen sidan 2008. Ho har spelt i gruppene Fat Battery, Myrtle, Fig., Ding Dong og unterPritperTingerchard. Komposisjonane og prestasjonane hennar har blitt høyrde både i Europa, Amerika og Indonesia. Vokalprestasjonane hennar har blitt skildra slik: ’between that of a rock-music diva and a verbal and physical contortionist (All About Jazz, New York) og musikken hennar som ’energetic and provocative’ (The Wire).

Passage (Part 1) by Aric Snee at S12

PASSAGE (Part 1)

Passage (Part 1) is a digital Video Projeksjon 2013. It will be shown at Galleri S12, during the month of Januari. The projection is only to be seen from the outside, so it is best to pass by at night. BEK supported the exhibition with equipment.

Passages (Part 1) is a series of projections that examines the phenomenon of light moving across water and our perception of movement as it relates to light and time. The vessels that we travel in are so enormous, that when we observe the world moving past us at speed, in time, the sensation of moving ourselves is lost. It somehow appears as if the world is moving under us.
Along with the last work that I exhibited at S12, “Present in Place”, this series takes into account it’s own location within the City of Bergen: it’s proximity to the historic harbor, and the seasonal light conditions that make a projection like this viewable for a longer part of a day.

Aric Snee is currently teaching Neon and Light based Sculpture at Ball State University in Muncie Indiana, USA.

Time and place:
  • S12 - 14/01/2014 to 30/01/2014
