Att bläddra genom sidorna i Guttorm Guttormsgaard arkiv

I samarbete med Guttorm Guttormsgaard och the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism (SICV), med stöd från Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA).

Den norska konstnären Guttorm Guttormsgaard har under sitt liv samlat mer än 25 000 föremål – allt från köksattiraljer, böcker, möbler och modernistiska målningar – som finns samlade i ett ”arkiv” i Blaker, i närheten av Oslo. I HoW experimenterar Guttormsgaard och SICV i en interaktiv installation och workshop som på olika sätt ingriper i detta arkiv.

Projektet visar på kontrasterna i olika organiseringsmöjligheter – analogt arkiv eller digital databas – och väcker frågor kring hur vi definierar och förvarar saker som konst och kunskap. Kan ett arkiv rymmas i en samling ord? Eller i en e-bok? Hur kan vi skriva om de historier som genereras av arkivet?

Öppet 7-15 oktober
Workshop 8 oktober, kl 15-18
Konstnärssamtal, kl 18.30-19.30
