Hanne Lippard and Bendik Giske in Venice

On May 8, 2019, Kunsthall Stavanger presented a special performance by Hanne Lippard and Bendik Giske during the opening week of the Venice Biennial 2019.

Kunsthall Stavanger has been working with Lippard and Bendik in the past. We presented Hanne Lippard with a special project at Coast Contemporary in 2017, and organized a large-scale solo exhibition, titled Ulyd, with the artist at Kunsthall Stavanger in the fall of 2018. During the exhibition, we presented a performance with Lippard and Giske. We will present a special concert at the kunsthall with Giske in 2020.

Opening on May 16: Yngve Holen, HEINZERLING

Kunsthall Stavanger invites you to the opening of the exhibition Yngve Holen, HEINZERLING on Thursday May 16, 6-8 pm.

Also opening: Bjarne Melgaard, Let Your Mind Be Your Bed.

The exhibition Violet Dennison, Tell Me How To Feel is also on view.

Opening speech: John Peter Hernes

Opening remarks: Hansjörg Deng from The German Embassy in Oslo.

Norwegian-German artist Yngve Holen (born 1982) presents his most comprehensive solo exhibition in Norway to date. HEINZERLING, opening on March 1 at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo and on May 16 at Kunsthall Stavanger, investigates the relationship between humans and technology, the organic and the industrial, the generic versus the individual. The exhibition includes new pieces alongside selected works from the past decade.

The title HEINZERLING reflects the duality of the artist’s Norwegian/German background by using the surname in his passport. He has taken an opportunity to play with his dual identity in regards to his work. How do we all relate to our surroundings: be it linguistically, tactile, visually or environmentally-specific?
