Welcome to the opening of Topo Scenic and Wave Table Concert!

Jessica Warboys, Hill Of Dreams, video still, 2016

Welcome to the opening of two new exhibitions at Kunsthall Stavanger this Thursday at 8pm!

The exhibition Topo Scenic by British artist Jessica Warboys can be described as an exploration of personal and collective memories through video and paintings. Some of the works shown are produced especially for the exhibition during the artist's stay in Stavanger. The same applies to the sound work Wave Table Concert by Morten Norbye Halvorsen, who recorded and composed the piece in and for Kunsthall Stavanger's main gallery. 

On the opening night, frequent collaborators Morten Norbye Halvorsen and Jessica Warboys will perform Super Scenic, a piece for synthesizer and voice.

The exhibition will be opened by Annamaria Gutierrez, Head of Cultural Affairs in Stavanger, and curators Sara Matson and Laura Smith from Tate St. Ives.

We look forward and hope to see you there!

PULSE

PULSE

The video PULSE (2014) will premiere at Kunsthall Stavanger on October 27th as part of the Art Video for Kids program.

Created by Norwegian artist Trine Lise Nedreaas, the video presents a hula-hooper who spins glowing hoops around her body. Like a micro solar system, she keeps the hoops moving, rhythmically orbiting them around herself, using her own body as an axis. Colored lights flash and whirl as the hoops spins and the camera changes angles, lulling the viewer into a mesmerizing, hypnotic trance.

Kunsthall Stavanger is currently closed for installation. We are hard at work installing two new solo exhibitions opening Thursday, October 27 at 20:00.  

Topo Scenic by UK artist Jessica Warboys will include two parts: One part is a presentation of  films, which has been been organized by Tate St Ives, in collaboration with Kunsthall Stavanger, with support from Museo Casa Masaccio, San Giovanni Valdarno and Tate St Ives. The other part of the exhibition will include a series of new works produced by Warboys in Stavanger.

Concurrently, Kunsthall Stavanger will open Wave Table Concert, a new sound work by Norwegian artist Morten Norbye Halvorsen composed especially for and within Kunsthall Stavanger's main gallery.

On the opening night, frequent collaborators Morten Norbye Halvorsen and Jessica Warboys will recite texts and poems set to music and light.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at the opening reception!
