«Sampling» by Ruben Aas
We talk about you almost every day. We also talk with you, but now it's about time to write a letter.
You told us, from the very beginning, that your stories were important to send further.
Heres one, inside the big picture we all made our personal pictures.
Also the film, which you're all a part of. Remember?
The situation and conflict itself is present all the time, but we managed to create our own.
By the way, did you know that all Box-Turtles have a highly doomed carapace?
That all species are doomed? The Box-turtle inside the 'box'.
Seemingly they have a longing to get out of these boxes, at the same time as they keep building them.
They tend to crawl back in to the box.
At last, we wish you could be here with us, to celebrate what we had together.
Somehow you are.

Seeking visual and mental silence in a complex world, the works take on “the empty space”. Becoming spatial “reflections”, they attempt to meditate on the immediate and commonplace structure(s) around us. You enter a space and it enters you.
Ingrid Eikhaugen is a 1. year master student at Bergen academy of art and design. She works with sound, collage, objects and installation. Becoming space at gallery Fisk is her first solo exhibition.
"Moulting" can either be viewed as a narrative of thoughts exposed to a domino-effect, presented in chronological order made out of cardboard, or just an economic strategy to fill the gallery space at the Fisk.
(…) alt handler om at man resonerer lynraskt med alle ens erfaringer og interesser tatt i betrakting i den underbeviste delen av hjernen. Nesten som deja vu. Denne underbeviste delen har raskere reflekser en den beviste, så når den beviste delen oppfatter ting litt senere kan det ofte oppstå interne missforståelser. Intuisjon er altså på en måte det som konstruerer det genuine, hvis man tør å bruke sånne ord.
Fredrik Berberg (1986) går førsteåret på masterstudiet i kunst ved Kunst- og Designhøgskolen i Bergen, hvor han også har tatt sin bachelorgrad. Han jobber et sted i sjiktet mellom skulptur og installasjon, hvor temaer som prosses, konvensjoner og interaksjoner knyttet til skulptur er dominerende.
FRA SPØK TIL SIDE
I know I laugh at him but, joking aside, he's a very clever scientist.
I know I threatened to leave and go round the world, but, joking aside, I do need a vacation.
Barbora Švarcova & Dana Machajová
The project is based on photographic series Le Mouvement by
Étienne-Julese Marey from late 19th century, which analyze human
movement usinig photographic image. Movement is depicted as a scheme
eliminating any objects or spacial elements that are usually the
targets of photographic apparatus. Our central point is the picture of
the figure covered in black clothes with white marks used for further
movement analysis. We want to find the body in the space again. To do
so we will paradoxically focus on its absence. We use the language of
science to weaken the racional, transfering the focus from its results
to its means.

Anna Wergelius - "The Universe Installation 1/2"
Anna Wergelius (b.1986) from Uppsala in Sweden is currently doing her second year at Bergen Academy of Art and Design. As she is currently finalizing her exchange program in London, she will hold a paralell show called "The Universe of Installation 2/2" at Shoreditch Town Hall.
This exhibition unite the interpretations of discoveries from her previous work; The Universe, The Second Universe and The Void. These mixed media works tells the stories in which Wergelius has encountered from these site studies.
Untitled - Marit Tunestveit Dyre
“It’s simple, people produce works,
and we do what we can with them,
we use them for ourselves.”
- Serge Daney
The process towards Untitled has been influenced by Marit Tunestveit Dyre interpretation of the words; physical presence, social sculpture, meetings, time and duration, space, body and intimacy. She is currently working on her master project at Bergen Academy of Art and Design. Untitled at gallery Fisk is her fist solo exhibition.
Her work evolves around the expanded field of sculpture, relational objects, relational aesthetic, participation, constructed situations and performance.
The works reflects her approach to art as a holistic bodily experience.
- "The exhibition 'Ooze' is the outcome of my thoughts on the mystical aspects of the internet, non-materiality versus physical objects, spirituality and mental space. The work has revolved around building sculptures with my hands and building landscapes in my mind. I've wondered about the possibility of virtual bleed and what it looks like at the end of internet. Aayooh - I tried not using technology"
Johanne Hestvold is a third year student at the art academy in Bergen. Her work straddles the line between painting and sculpture, with minimalism and sculpture as important references. With selected paintings as a starting point, she builds installations that are both translations and abstractions of the referenced painting.
Hestvold is dealing with space and presence. How conditions like size, weight, material and placing affect us when we enter a room. These relations are also investigated in "The expectation of silver (Turner)" at Galleri Fisk. The reference for this piece is "the light painter" Turners "Snow Storm: Hannibal and his Army Crossing the Alps" form 1812. The dramatic painting is translated into an installation that deals directly with the architecture of the gallery space. The piece is activated by the presence of the audience.
In preparation for the opening please consider following topics:
A room is a space where anything can happen. What the room may be used for depends on the physical limitations (which are hard to change), and the interior fittings (which are often more flexible). With regular use a sensation of home may be associated with the room.
Home is often incorrectly related to accommodation or place of birth, whereas it is knowledge of a certain environment and its conditions that are more central to the idea of the home. With insufficient knowledge a feeling of alienation can occur, while on the other hand an excess of knowledge can lead to boredom and passivity.
Alienation is a state of mind that is best described as a gap. When there is an interspace between the self and existence, it is not possible to experience being part of the existence. The dividing gap may be experienced as painful and/or liberating.
Malin Gabriella Nordin
Malin Gabriella Nordin is a third-year fine art student at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design. In her work she reconstructs fragments from her dreams, memories and surroundings. She works intuitively and her process is an important and crucial part of the work; like in a game of Chinese whispers she moves between different mediums and techniques. Something that started out flat on a paper turns into a sculpture from a different angle and later becomes a painting, etc. The process continues infinitely, as leftover pieces from one project becomes a major part of the next.
In 'Private Language' she has been collaborating with children from the ages of 3 to 5. Together they discussed her work – a collection of sculptures – after which all of the children were asked to make drawings of what they thought was missing. Showing at Gallery Fisk is her interpretations of the children's drawings.
Jennifer Johansson is currently studying the Bachelor Program in Fine Arts at the Kunst-og Designhøgskolen in Bergen. In her art Johansson primarily work with video and performance, where she also involves installation and sculpture. Her projects often begins intuitively based on personal experiences, such as memories, dreams and relationships. She then puts these experiences in a larger context. Connects the personal with the public and the fictional with the real.
At Gallery Fisk Johansson will give you the opportunity to deeper understanding of the "B-evolution". On Friday, November 9 at 20:00 there will be a presentation about Homo Cunnus Castor Sapiens and recent theories of this species emergence.
"(The scientist picks up a balloon filled with water and holds it in her hand, she holds it out towards the public. From now on, the scientist will use a tougher, almost threatening tone of voice, sometimes she focus on certain people in the audience as she squeezes the balloon in her hands.)"
Martina Hodne is a third year student in Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Art and Design Academy in Bergen. She works with drawing, collage, installation and sculpture. The materials vary by mood and availability. Randomness and spontaneity prevails. Intuition and attention to detail puts it all in place.
She is interested in flow and change. The freedom to follow impulses. In what happens while one is not paying attention. And the personalities that suddenly occur in objects. In large and small mysteries. In searching and finding.
