Fjell Festning’s inaugural exhibition Northbound showcases six artists practicing across Norway, Sweden, Scotland and England. Storytelling takes centre stage as history, memory and myth resonate throughout the exhibition.

Brekke’s work is inspired by the objects and artefacts rooted to a particular place, often with historical significance, from which she makes casts and copies that suggest new meanings and uses.
Her latest series Farsarv/Patrimony is based on the tools and artefacts her grandfather made to practise as a blacksmith artist, a pursuit he abandoned owing to a lack of material and the need for labourers to rebuild the country after the Second World War.
