“We never look at just one thing; we are always looking at the relation between things and ourselves. Our vision is continually active, continually moving, continually holding things in a circle around itself, constituting what is present to us as we are.”                            

- John Berger, Ways of Seeing (1972)

 

Fredrik Berberg (b. 1986, Skien) was educated at the Art Academy in Bergen. Berberg investigates the translation of aesthetics between virtual and physical spaces through 3D modeling and materialization processes.  In his sculptures a deconstructed architecture comes into play and new constellations are conceived in a variety of materials. Recent exhibitions include Rostockgata Skulpturpark, Kunsthall Oslo (2019), BOA, Oslo (2019), Palmera, Bergen (2018), Telemark Kunstsenter (2018), Noplace, Oslo (2017), Elephant Kunsthall, Lillehammer (2014).

Marianne Brekke (b. 1965) was educated at the Art Academy in Bergen. As a painter Brekke works with colors to investigate and describe light. She is influenced by the modernist use of complementary colours and works with layer upon layer to create the final result. Every work is based on light at a time of day or night, and is a new frequency of light, colour and form. Her works have previously been shown at QB Gallery, Oslo (2018), Bærum Kunsthall (2017), House of Foundation, Moss (2015), LNM, Oslo (2010, 2005). Brekke has worked on numerous commissioned site-specific works, the most recent being in Huddinge,Stockholm (2019).

Ellen Grieg (b. 1948, Oslo) was educated at the Art Academy in Oslo, the Art Academy in Bratislava and the College of Crafts in Prague. Grieg’s work constitutes abstract explorations of shape and color within textile materials. Previously focusing on tapestry, she has in recent years worked with dyed nylon ropes, often in large scale, hanging from the ceiling. Her works are voluminous, taking a lot of physicaland visual space with their strong colors, their play with light and shadow, and their evident materiality. Selected exhibitions include Blåfarveværket (2020), Galleri Format, Oslo (2019), QB, Oslo (2019), Curio/ Design, Miami (2017), Triennale, Tallin (2017), Lynx, Oslo (2015), Nordic Light, St. Petersburg (1993), Alta Museum (1991), Kunstindustrimuseet, Oslo (1986), Kunstnerforbundet, Oslo (1983, 1979). Griegs work is acquired by institutions such as The National Museum,Oslo, Oslo City Councils Art Collection, The Office of Foreign Affairs and Norwegian Culture Council. 

Ole Martin Lund Bø (b. 1973, Stavanger) was educated at the Art Academy in Bergen. Lund Bø has a minimal approach to most of his work. He plays with the connotations inherent in materials, surfaces and forms in painting, sculpture and photography. His works have previously been shown at Golsa, Oslo (2018), Noplace, Oslo (2017), QB Gallery, Oslo (2016), MELK, Oslo (2016), Denny Gallery, New York (2013), Gallerie Opdahl, Berlin and Stavanger (2013, 2011, 2007), Kunstnerforbundet, oslo (2011) and Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2008).  Lund Bø's work has been acquired by institutions such as KODE, Bergen, Statoil, Stavanger Art Museum and Baroness Jean Von Oppenheim.

André Tehrani (b. 1980 in Tønsberg, Norway) is a Norwegian-Iranian artist educated at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts and the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Tehrani's paintings can be described as a variant of post-digital abstraction, which draws on everything from Islamic architecture and esoteric western formalisms, to web design templates and HTML colour charts. His works have previously been shown at Galleri LNM, Oslo (2019), Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2018), MELK, Oslo (2017), Kunstnerforbundet, Oslo (2017), Tallinn Art Hall, Tallinn (2017), Hordaland Kunstsenter, Bergen (2016), WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (Project room, 2014), Entrée, Bergen (2013) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013).
