Reality In the North is Thinner Than Anywhere Else (2022)

Part of a series of experiments.

Artist Espen Tversland (b. 1970) lives and works in Brønnøysund. The idea of the North is a important inspiration for his recent works. During his several art residences and expeditions on Svalbard, (Imagainations of the north, Polart and the Arctic Circle Expedition), the North have shown that the reality in the North is thinner than anywhere else.

He is motivated by science, spiritual experiences, emotions, phenomena, and materials that he collects and processes. He asks big and small questions based on human intervention in nature, with a focus on the northen regions.

Stop Bath (2017)

Part of the Virtual Material body of work. The video looks at Lacan's concepts of flickering and screen memories, and the structures of narrative through the elements of nature and a digitally cast coloured vision.

Artist Rachel Wolfe

Rachel Wolfe (b. 1984, American) creates sublime timescapes proliferating beauty through public installations, images (photography, video), textiles, and sculptures.

Seeing the body as the generative force in cognition, her meditative works engage in allergory and eros.

She brings forth her sensitivities through art as a means to root poetic and geologically rooted stories.

Tradition and Lineage guide her values and aesthetic choices.

Palette (2018)

This project explores colours and landscapes filmed across three different landscapes – the Himalayas, the temples of central India and botanical gardens in Amsterdam.

Artist Ankita Anand

Originally from India, Ankita Anand is a moving-image artist whose work evokes our uncanny relationship to the screen and technology. Her work has been greatly influenced by Freud’s uncanny and also by Martin Heidegger’s Philosophy of Technology. Using documentary film and green screen as a medium she questions the difference in digital materiality and physical materiality and the ability of human perception to distinguish between the two.
