April / May 2019
The curatorial team of Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) 2019 have been invited to collaborate with UiT The Arctic University of Norway and their research project Stressor. Liaf has been offered 2 spaces on the cruise and I am happy I could be one of invited artists-on-board, together with Toril Johanessen.
The field expedition takes place in an area of the Norwegian Sea outside the Lofoten islands. During the expedition I will be on board the research ship “Helmer Hanssen”.
During the cruise I concentrated on observing and collecting material and data on weather that definitely was a significant factor on life on board. Weather in times of climate change is one of my biggest themes. Observing how numbers and data really feel and how they affect our behaviour and action interested me also on Helmer Hanssen.
My artistic work during this time is set up in dialogue with the curators of LIAF and will be shown as part of the LIAF Biennale taking place in Svolvær in Lofoten, between 30th August and 27th September, 2019.
