Three Rooms

Three Rooms was a concert held on Friday 2 December in Galleri KiT at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, NTNU. The concert featured three solo performances by Michael Francis Duch (double bass), Kim Myhr (guitar & electronics) and Ingar Zach (percussion & electronics) with video projections by Jeremy Welsh. The concert was part of an ongoing collaboration between Duch and Welsh, with the aim of establishing a research platform for contemporary music, visual art and performance, focussed on site-specific and place-related concerts, events and exhibitions.

Video documentation of the three performances can be viewed here:

Forum for Artistic Research, Stavanger

Travelling home after attending the autumn forum for artistic research, hosted this time by the University of Stavanger. The following is a small homage to Fluxus artist George Brecht, (whose works were the subject of my BA thesis long ago) prompted or inspired by the final presentation of the conference, concerning silence in artistic collaboration.

Surnadal Billag

Surnadal Billag (Surnadal Bus Company) - a former local bus station in Surnadalsøra, Møre & Romsdal, Norway, which is now being repurposed as a multi-purpose art space, run by Jon Arne Mogstad and Martinus Grimsmo. This week we held a workshop there for new Fine Art students. Next year there will hopefully be announced an international residency programme, after the space has been renovated. There will also be a programme of workshops, exhibitions, concerts and other events. I will be collaborating with Jon Arne and Martinus on the content of the programme. Watch this space for further information!

The images below are from the main floor, but this is only one part of the building.

O.F.F. - Oslo Flaneur Festival 2016

For Oslo Flaneur Festival 2016, which took place between 23 - 25 June, I produced a small digital slideshow "A Selection from The Museum of Traces". The images in the slideshow are from a large, and ever-growing collection of photographs usually taken on walks in and around a variety of cities where I have lived, worked or visited. Some of the images belong to other projects such as the image series Mazine (2009 - 2010)  and some are simply part of an archive of material that is the basis for the development of various projects and events, which have included the concert/performance "Muffled Cyphers" with the Langham Research Centre.
