Studio 17, Stavanger
Blueberry art, sardine box, palmtrees, pig bladder disco balls and a story about making life slightly more beautiful.
The story of this exhibition is the story of a meeting. Working in a health institution the artist noticed a glass with a colored papertower placed in a resident's window. This is art, he stated. He had colored it by using the contents of a blueberry extract pill. Suddenly a boring window in an institution had got a personal, creative touch.
The following conversations and creative exchanges resulted in this exhibition. Here are more blueberry art in colored papertowels, but also the familiar works of Karina Kazlauskaite, guilded everyday material like a sardine tin or an earplug. And inflated pig bladders transformed into disco balls. But the highlight is the very thought that a small detail can change the whole picture. Not only by turning one part of palm tree pictures, but especially in the installation "Steinar Eikje": where nostalgic personal furniture is made playful and energetic by adding one pig-bladder-disco-ball and light.
