For the exhibition Material Information I moved parts of my studio to Permanenten/Art Museums of Bergen. My project-blog is still up and running, visit it here: http://materialinsiderinformation.no/
Material Information brings a set of contemporary practices together in order to present a multiple meditation on the new and old objects of industry.
The exhibition was curated by Juan A. Gaitán, and took place in three different venues and around the city of Bergen. Read more about the exhibition and exhibitors here: Material Information and Art Museums of Bergen.

My work Strategies of Denial , included in the exhibition NICE?, is currently touring schools in Akershus County as being a part of the The Cultural Rucksack (Den kulturelle skolesekken), a national programme for art and culture provided by professionals in Norwegian schools.
The programme helps school pupils to become acquainted with all kinds of professional art and cultural expressions. Read more about it here.
