Lene Tangen: Arctic Explorations.
The glass artists Lene Tangen has long had an interest for the Arctic and the ecological effects of global warming. The exhibition is the outcome of a residency on Spitzbergen, where Tangen investigated ice melting and performed a series of performative experiments with ice blocks.
Lene Charlotte Tangen (b. 1971) studied at KADK, Bornholm, and has exhibited widely in Norway and abroad.
Pearla Pigao: Sinus
Pearla Pigao explores ways of materialising music through digital hand-woven textiles. By weaving metal threads into the fabric she creates an instrument inspired by a Theremin, one of the few intruments that can be played without being touched. In stead it reacts to electromagnetic disturbances from moving hands and bodies. The installation Sinus (2017) is Pigao’s graduation piece and was awarded with several prizes earlier this spring.
Pearla Pigao (b. 1981) graduated MFA from the Oslo Academy of the Arts (KhiO) in 2017.
