Meta.Morf Biennale X : Digital Wild
Location: Gallery KiT, Trondheim
Darknet spa for meditation? Scenography made in collaboration with fungi? A love story between a woman and her plant? Immersive helmet offering refugia from deep-sea mining? FY FAEN SÅ BRA! FAEN (Female Artistic Experiments Norway) Exhibition: FY FAEN SÅ BRA! is the second group exhibition by four young female artists based in Norway:
Annike Flo (NO), Anne Cecilie Lie (NO), Renate Synnes Handal (NO), Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir (IS/NO) .
c o c r e a t : e : u r e s : s h i f t is Annike Flo in partnership with the myriad of beings living in the KiT gallery space, its human visitors and yet to be discovered guests. The project is a performative experiment attempting to shift our perceptions of other beings from other to kin, and our perspective of self from singular to plural.
The work Intersected is rooted in the city of Trondheim, which has a long history of digging deep into the body of the landscape, and now spearheads extraction below the seabed. Elsewhere, others look beyond our planet for opportunities to mine celestial bodies and dreams. Is it possible to cultivate future digital and non-digital refugia and wildernesses, though not through escapism, in order to avoid the reckoning that is growing imminently closer?
Polyphilia is a piece specially made for gallery KiT and Meta.Morf Biennale, and is part of Renate Synnes Handal’s ongoing project En annen partner. In it the artist explores topics like love, relationships, and loneliness — navigating through the art- and everyday life together with her special partner Gullis (Epipremnum Aureum).
The Darknet Spa offers the audience to delve into the unconscious of our digital hive- mind, offering a glimpse into the darker sides of our collective psyche. The artwork investigates the responsibility we place on our technologies and how they ultimately function as a mirror that reflects back to us the broken parts of our society.
FAEN SYMPOSIUM – FY FAEN SÅ BRA kuratert & moderert av Zane Cerpina Jeg tror kunsten blir mektig og slagkraftig når den er utforskende og eksperimentell: kunst som utfordrer og adresserer de mest kritiske samtidsspørsmålene i samfunnet; kunst som får oss til å se verden fra både et nytt perspektiv og gjennom kritisk omgang med…
Accidental and non-accidental archiving of women artists in new media art. What has changed in between two pivotal Neural magazine issues, dedicated to women artists in new media art and twelve years apart, (issue #24, “Geek Girls”, 2006, and issue #61, “Speculative Pink”, 2018)? These issues ‘archive’ two different historical moments, and it is equally…
