In Surnadal again, seven months after the last time. Same house, different room. Same view, different angle. Getting ready for the opening of the first exhibition in Billag Festival 2021, a six month programme of events at art centre Surnadal Billag. I am one of two guest curators for the festival. This is a new phase in my prolonged entanglement with the place. Previously I have organised workshops and events, run courses here with students, helped to recruit artists to the residency programme. So it is a kind of home from home. Each time I return between now and the end of September there will be a different group of artists, a different focus, another set of expectations and challenges. Having ended my teaching career almost a year ago, having been, like everyone, a virtual prisoner of Corona for the past year, it is good to have this project.
