Performance Risto Holopainen/Per Hess
At the opening of the exhibition
Die Verwandlung by Nina Bang and Ingebjørg Une Hagen
10.06 – 26.06
During this year’s Oslo Open, Per Hess / Nina Bang opens her studio in Trafo Kunstnerhus, room 2035 for the public. Meet the artists, see what they’re working on now and ask what you want to know about their art.
Everything that shakes our security seems provocative. Contemporary art is often such an unexpected encounter. Unknown content, unknown forms of expression, new techniques and materials put our convictions and our experience of art to the test. Høstutstillingen is challenging. It amazes and delights, irritates and excites.
Per Hess settles with the Kongsberg Group’s weapons production and Norway as a nation of peace.
Where there is light, there is also darkness. Per Hess has for many years worked with light and neon light, but now at Kongsberg Kunstforening takes a juicy settlement with some of the darkest things that exist: war, weapons, murder. And a look at his own background as born and raised in Kongsberg, the whole of Norway’s coat of arms.
