Pink Shoelaces and Expanded Cinema

It has been a busy couple of weeks, this early April. First I was in Kabelvåg, Lofoten, to hold a course on Expanded Cinema and Video Installation at Nordlands Kunst og Filmskole, then in Trondheim for Pink Shoelaces, an exhibition in public space that I co-curated with David Breida, and that was produced by the group PUNKTET Visningsrom. 15 artists (students & graduates) from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art took part in the exhibition, which also featured lectures and guided tours. The project took place in the area of Trondheim known as Skansen, a public space skirted by the railway and harbour, with a new pedestrian walkway along the edge of the fjord.
