GJESTEKUNSTNERE PÅ USF DENNE SOMMEREN

I studioene for internasjonale gjestekunstnere er det full aktivitet hele året. Denne sommeren er det serbiske Liljana Vojvodic og Dragan Vojvodic, og tjekkisk/kanadiske Lenka Novakova som er på besøk. I god internasjonal ånd lar vi resten av informasjonen skje på engelsk:

Lenka Novakova is a Czech/Canadian artist living and working in Montreal. She has an active exhibition record in Canada and abroad, also she travels broadly to work on sight through fellowships and artist residencies. Her practice is concerned with an ephemeral poetic quality a moment of recreation and reflective thought through constructed environments, simple technologies and moving light; with crossover in cinema and theatre technologies.
Through her practice she explores qualities of space, architectural environments and installation by means of moving light. She is interested in both, light as a medium of perception as well as a medium of representation with its impact on the visual and architectural transformation of space affecting our sensory and perceptual systems.

At USF Verftet she hopes to work within the local context and create concepts for projects addressing some of the fundamental conditions of light such as reflection and refraction. Also she hopes to get involved with other disciplines within the local arts such as dancers and choreographers to create a performance within the constructed space of her installations.
