  • Marius Moldvær – Trace me where I’m not at home

    In Marius Moldvær’s project, the people of the Barents Region are the focus. Moldvær has placed woven, raw leather artworks in Kirkenes,
    Grense Jakobselv, Neiden, Nikel, Murmansk and Teriberka with each locations climate and environment affecting the artworks with constant change and development over time. The process creates a vivid recollection of the place – a reflection of how geography, climate, weather, settlement and industry shape the people who live there. Moldvær has also collected materials such as soil, roots and textiles that, together with the weaves, create a composite image of people of the north.

  • The Dreamcatcher

    What dreams do we have at night? Are they different from our daydreams? What do our dreams mean? Does everyone dream? These are just a few questions that are brought up throughout the workshops held by the artists Vibeke Emilie Steinsholm and Dorte Holbek. Through drawing, cutting and pasting, text, light and shadows kids will try to visualize their dreams together with the artists. The dreams will then be arranged into a larger installation as part of the ongoing Dream Catcher project, which includes several workshops by the artists and kids from all over Norway. Among them are the 1st and 2nd grade school kids from the Sandnes School and from the Oscarsgata refugee home in Vadsø.
