White Out: video projection at street level


From 16 - 29 January, my video work "White Out" (2002) will be screened continuoiusly in the window of Gallery S12 in Sparbankgate, Bergen.  The video will be shown in one of the main gallery windows at street level. This presentation is a collaboration between S12 and BEK (Bergen Center for Electronic Art)

White Out was initially made for the exhibition "Dream vs. Reality" at Galleri F15, Jel√ły, in 2002 and has since been included in several exhibitions, including "Where Am I Now" at the Museum for Contemporary Art in Oslo (2004). In 2005 it was shown as a large public projection in the concourse of Oslo Central Station and in 2006 was part of an international video art exhibition at South London Gallery in Camberwell, South London.
