Galleri Maria Veie, Oslo
Apocalyptic art in black&white
A visit to the gallery's new location in what used to be successively a black metal music shop and a hairdresser. An exhibition in black and white well fitting to the gallery, with nothing less than the Apocalypse as topic:
Johannes Høie: Floodland IX
Painted live on Chinese silk during the Hong Kong Biennale last year.
Eirin Støen: State of Nation
Sverre Malling: Submission is a Gift to Your Brother
(try to imagine it without the reflected lights)
Peter B Booth: Used to be Somebody
Sculpture made from cremation ash
Linn Pedersen: Transformers
A creature is caught in the transformation process from rock to man, or the other way around.
Christina Leithe: Wine Ranks and Barrel
Martin Skauen: All the Lonely
A weird story about a quest for the ultimate experience, to what you can gain access by injecting the substance of the eye's black spot of many people. A video I should have watched fully if I was not in a rush.
