ARTISTxARTIST=ART2, ARTIST+ARTIST=ART

Mon, 01/25/2016 - 14:36

Velkommen til ROM 8, og et seminar initiert av BEK og Kunst- og designhøgskolen i Bergen, onsdag 27. januar.

The seminar, led by professor Hilde Hauan at the Department of Fine Art, will question hybrid, intervened and collaborative artworks. How has the artwork been created? Who has the ownership of the artwork? How do ideas and methods from one practice get translated into another? How do we deal with compromise and negotiation in the process of collaborative work?

What about the social, cultural or political position of the artwork? What about the economy, how to share the expenses or the payment?

Programme:

Wednesday 27 January 2016

LMW at Heimdal kunstforening

Sat, 01/16/2016 - 08:59

Saturday 16.01.16 at 1 pm Heimdal Kunstforening opens an exhibition by the artist group LMW: Trond Lossius, Jon Arne Mogstad, Jeremy Welsh – three artists working in three different medias: video, painting and sound.

https://heimdalkunstforening.wordpress.com

Kunstnergruppen LMW ble dannet i 2004 med en utstilling på Kristiansands Kunsthall. Utstillingen, Dialog/Overgang, ble første i en serie som varte til 2011, med visninger på gallerier, museer, teater og festivaler. Som tittelen sier, handlet hele prosjektet om dialog mellom tre kunstnere med tre ulike former for kunstnerisk praksis, og om utforsking av overganger mellom disse. Dialog/Overgang serien bestod av installasjoner med en blanding av maleri, foto, video, digitalbilder, silketrykk, lys og lyd. Siste prosjekt i serien ble presentert under utstillingen BGO1 på Bergen kunstmuseum KODE i 2010-11. En av utstillingene i serien fant sted på Trondheim Kunstforening i 2005.

Utstillingen på Heimdal Kunstforening er ikke en videreføring av Dialog/Overgang men allikevel er det en ny dialog mellom kunstnerne. Etter flere år med arbeid på store offentlige utsmykninger, har Jon Arne Mogstad brukt noen måneder på atelier for å lage en serie med store malerier der han utforsker tekstilfarge som medium. Materialets transparens og flyttende kvalitet skaper nye muligheter for en videre utvikling av abstrakt maleriets formspråk og bygger på Mogstads mangeårig praksis som maler.

Jeremy Welsh har for anledning laget en kort digitalanimasjon med tittelen New Rose basert på disse malerier til Jon Arne Mogstad. Videoen er både kommentar og undersøkelse av malerienes detaljrik overflater, og er samtidig en lenke tilbake til begynnelsen av Dialog/Overgang, hvor Welsh laget en animasjon som denne gangen ble prosjissert direkte på en av Mogstad’s malerier.

The Atmospherics er et pågående prosjekt av Lossius og Welsh, basert på feltopptak i landskapet. Lyden er tatt opp med en ambisonic mikrofon, som kaprer lyd samtidig fra alle himmelretninger og danner grunnlaget for å skape installasjoner med surround lyd. Videoen er spillt inn med høyoppløsning (4K) kamera, som kaprer mye detalje og subtile nyanser. Materialet i både lyd og bilde er bearbeidet under redigering for å skape installasjoner som er assosiative og reflekterende heller en dokumentariske. Begge kunstnere er veldig opptatt av samtidsmusikk, og det kan sies at dette felles arbeid er en form for komposisjon. The Atmospherics har så langt blitt presentert på flere utstillingssteder, inkludert Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall, Arendal og Galleri 3,14 i Bergen. Senere i 2016 blir den største installasjon så langt stillt ut på Kunstmuseum i Sogn og Fjordane, Førde. Prosjektet har vært støttet av Norsk Kulturråd, Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond, Bergen Kommune og Trondheim Kommune.

Fra 2004 – 2009 var alle tre kunstnere tilknyttet Kunst og Designhøgskolen i Bergen. Nå for tiden er Mogstad og Welsh professorer på Kunstakademiet i Trondheim NTNU og Trond Lossius er forskningsleder på Bergen Senter for Elektronisk Kunst.

The sound in-between

Sat, 01/16/2016 - 08:50

In January 2016 the interactive vocal installation ”The sound in-between” by Line Horneland can be experienced in Sola ruinkirke, a mediaevel church outside Stavanger. The project combines vocal soundscapes and spatiality.


Lyden i mellomrommet / The sound in-between from Line Horneland on Vimeo.

Sound is central to human life, and the aspect of sound is implicit in spatiality. The project thematizes space and sound in an art context, as a place for the listener’s prereflective experiences.

The installation is part of a master project at Stord/Haugesund University College, with Trond Lossius at BEK as external supervisor.

The installation can be experienced in week 2, 2016:

Thursday 14 January 17-19 pm
Friday 15 January 17-19 pm

Søkjar : Heim

Mon, 11/30/2015 - 17:09

Three artists from Sotra wanted to offer their local community a slightly different exhibition. Søkjar: Heim is an exhibition in Luftskipet (the airship) at Straume featuring Kari Bugge Gjerstad, Odd Gjerstad, Håkon Holm-Olsen, Trond Lossius & Jeremy Welsh, Heidi Kårtveit, Geir Opdal, Gro Lygre Petersen and Linda Soh Trengereid.

Tre kunstnere fra Sotra ville gi hjemstedet sitt en litt annerledes kunstutstilling. Se for deg dette: du kommer inn på en utstilling. Rundt deg kan du se malerier, tegninger, skulpturer, grafikk og du kan høre lyd fra en installasjon og mennesker som prater, skåler og hilser på kjente. Du går en runde i rommet. Alle de 8 verkene i utstillingen er laget av profesjonelle kunstnere med tilknytning til Sotra, stedet du selv bor, eller har reist til for å se denne utstillingen.

Ved inngangen i rommet står det en postkasse. Ved siden av postkassen ligger det en bunke med papir. Ordene på papiret forteller deg at det er et søknadsskjema. Nå, se for deg dette: du har like stor sjanse som alle de andre feststemte menneskene rundt deg til å eie hvilke som helst av kunstverkene i rommet. Arbeidene som er utstilt koster ikke penger, men tiden din. Skjemaet ved postkassen vil vite hvorfor akkurat du fortjener arbeidet til en av de deltakende kunstnerne. Du går en runde til i rommet.

Sammen med 5 andre kunstnere inviterer vi, Gro Lygre Petersen, Håkon Holm-Olsen og Linda Soh Trengereid til en kunstutstilling i Luftskipet på Straume. Vi ville gjøre et kunstprosjekt på vårt hjemsted som tar for seg kjøpepresset som preger vår tid. Et prosjekt i periferien der kunst får være kunst på sine egne premisser uten å bli styrt av krefter som vanligvis trekker i økonomiske tråder. Ved å gi bort alle kunstverkene i utstillingen gir vi alle i publikum en lik sjanse til å bli eier av et verk, uavhengig av bakgrunn, alder eller økonomisk situasjon. For å ha muligheten til å få et arbeid må man levere en søknad som argumenterer for hvorfor vi skal gi verket til henne eller ham.
En søknadssituasjon som gjenspeiler en del av hverdagen til mange av kunstnerne i ustillingen.

Når pengene er tatt bort, hva er da igjen i relasjonen mellom kunst og publikum?

Kunstnerne som viser arbeid er; Kari Bugge Gjerstad, Odd Gjerstad, Trond Lossius/Jeremy Welsh, Heidi Kårtveit, Geir Opdal, Håkon Holm­-Olsen, Linda Soh Trengereid og Gro Lygre Petersen. Det vises verk i mange uttrykk; skulptur, lydverk, maleri, tegning og grafikk og alderen på kunstnerne varierer fra 31 til 90 år.

Den lokale jury, som etter søknadsfristen vil avgjøre hvem som får hvilket verk, godtar søknader på nynorsk, bokmål og engelsk. Det er ingen øvre eller nedre aldersgrense for å søke.

Utstillingen er støttet av Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond, BKK, Haltenbanken, Sotra Bruk, Fjell Kommune og Bodoni.

Live camera in installations and performances

Thu, 11/26/2015 - 12:29

BEK will run a half-day seminar on the use of live camera sollutions in installations and performances. Through a presentation of recent project, we’ll dig into possibilities and problems when we put cameras on stage. Presenters: Gisle Martens Meyer, Marieke Verbiesen and Lars Ove Toft.

The use of live camera solutions opens up for a great variety of possibilities in theatre, dance and installations. But it also adresses some issues that has to be taken into consideration.

- Do we really need it ?
- Will it materialize your ideas?
- What else will it materialise?
- And will the result be as predicted ?

These are some of the issues we’ll address at BEK on Friday 4th December at 13.00 – 16.00.

Through presentations of recent projects by Gisle Martens Meyer, Marieke verbiesen and Lars Ove Toft we’ll share knowledge and experience, and try to get closer to a less troublesome integration of live camera on stage.

The seminar is support by project funding from Bergen kommune.

Gisle Martens Meyer is an artist, musician and performer. At the moment he’s working on a new project involving live green screen solution. He’ll present the project, and we’ll be able to do some testing inside his green screen installation.

Marieke Verbiesen is an artist, animator and video consultant at BEK. Her installation Movistar has been shown at different locations both in Nederlands and Norway. She’ll present her project.

Lars Ove Toft is director at BEK, former theatre technician, and has together wirh Piya Wanthiang, developed a moving camera and multi camera/screen setup for a performance at BIT-Teatergarasjen this spring. He’ll present the prosess of developnment and the different solutions they ended up with on stage.

xCoAx 2016: 4th International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X (July 2016, Bergamo)

Dates: 7-8 July 2016
Location: Bergamo, Italy
Website: http://xcoax.org/
Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2016

xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection where computational tools and media meet art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive x factor that connects them all.

Since 2013, xCoAx has been an occasion for international audiences to meet and exchange ideas, in search for interdisciplinary synergies among computer scientists, artists, media practitioners and theoreticians at the frontiers of digital arts and culture.

The focus is on the unpredictable overlaps between the chaos and freedom of creativity and the rules and determinism of algorithms, between human nature and machine technology, with the aim to evolve towards new directions in aesthetics.

In 2016 xCoAx will go back to where it started: the S.Agostino campus of the University of Bergamo, a familiar place made fresh by exquisitely renovated premises where we look forward to hosting you and your work.

The xCoAx Organising Committee is very proud to announce that the keynote speaker will be Computer Art pioneer Frieder Nake, with a talk titled “The Disappearing Masterpiece”.

Topics:

You are invited to submit theoretical, practical or experimental research work that includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Computation
  • Communication

Les Baltazars - Nocturne

Wed, 11/18/2015 - 15:39
Nocturnes is an audiovisual project in two parts with the French artist duo Les Baltazars. Newly developed technology produces fog, light, wind and sound to create your own imaginary adventures. The project is a collaboration between BIT-Teatergarasjen, Lydgalleriet and BEK . Performances at Studio USF Friday 27. at 19 and 21. Installation at Lydgalleriet from Monday 30. – Thursday 3.

Nocturne # 1 – Sediments er et 18 minutters verk som blir presentert på Lydgalleriet. Her inviteres til dagdrømmerier, stimulert av en stadig skiftende, flyktig tåkeskulptur som virker både på bevissthet og kropp. Publikum kan bevege seg fritt i rommet, påvirke og forstyrre.

Nocturne # 2 – Tumbleweed er en forestilling med publikum plassert på en forhøyet plattform, i et rom som langsomt blir et tåkelandskap. De abstrakte, skyaktige massene tar form etter publikums egne tolkninger.

BEK vil presentere kunstnerne direkte etter første forestilling på Studio USF. Det vil også bli anledning til å møte kunstnerne og få en “guidet tur” i installasjonen torsdag 3. desember kl. 16.00

Artist talk - Gunhild Mathea Olaussen

Wed, 11/18/2015 - 14:29

Gunhild Mathea Olaussen is a fellow at the Fellowship Program for Artistic Research, Norwegian Theatre Academy, Østfold University College. Here at BEK, on Friday 20 Nov. kl. 13.00, she speaks about the main trends in her private research work and her planned projects in 2016. We start with a small lunch.

Med bakgrunn som scenograf og musiker, søker Olaussen i sitt stipendiatprosjekt å utforme sceniske tablå som en eller flere aktører kan aktivere kinetisk, og påvirke instrumentelt. Dette for å utvikle en dramaturgi hvor man, i likhet med bevegelse, innlemmer de scenografiske og auditive elementene i den samtidige performative komposisjonen i rommet.

Sentralt i arbeidet står tilfeldighet og uforutsigbare faktorer, der aktørens lytting og respons fører hendelsesforløpet videre. En erfaring som kan fordre logikk og kunnskap utenfor bestemte kategorier, tillærte koder og begrep i hverdagslivet. Med mål om å åpne opp for en taktil erfaring av rom, lyd, og meningsinnhold.

Hos BEK vil Olaussen presentere forskningens hovedlinjer, for videre konkret å snakke om et planlagt prosjekt våren 2016. I den siste delen av presentasjonen ønsker hun å åpne opp for diskusjon med publikum, blandt annet deltakerene på BEKs MAX-workshop.

BEK 15 years anniversary!

Wed, 11/18/2015 - 12:24

At Friday December 11th 2015 at Landmark in Bergen we will serve a program of concerts, videos, animations, net art, light art, performances and noise. Something from the archives, but mostly in the form of freshly squeezed contemporary juice. Accompanied by refreshments, speeches and conversations we want you to join us through a full night in honour of BEK, art, artists, art production and audiences for 15 years.

The artists this evening are Espen Sommer Eide, Gisle Frøysland, HC Gilje, Jørgen Larsson, Lerin / Hystad, Trond Lossius, Gisle Martens Meyer, Ellen Røed, Maia Urstad, Amanda Steggell (Motherboard) and Marieke Verbiesen. Welcome. We look forward to celebrating our history and our future together!

I år 2000 ble Stiftelsen Bergen senter for elektronisk kunst en realitet. Siden den gang har dette lille stedet, dette store kunst- og teknologimiljøet, denne nasjonale og internasjonale kunstaktøren, BEK, bidratt og formet kunstprosjekter, kunstneres karrierer og publikums opplevelser i 15 år. Dette er jaggu ikke snaut, og noe vi er veldig stolte av. Vi ønsker i denne anledning å synliggjøre viktigheten av kunsten, og av produksjonsleddet, nettverket og fagligheten i kunst og teknologi ved å sette sammen et fyldig og variert kunstprogram som fremmer elektronisk kunst som uttrykksform. Arrangementet vil produseres for og kommuniseres ut til et bredt publikum av kulturinteresserte, tidligere og nåværende aktører og brukere i det elektroniske kunstfeltet samt samarbeidspartnere i Bergen, ellers i Norge og internasjonalt.

Programmet er satt sammen av Anne Marthe Dyvi, kunstner og kunstnerisk utvikler på BEK med et overordnet historisk, kunstnerisk og fagmiljøperspektiv for øye.
