Kunsthall Stavanger Presents Lina Viste Grønli at Untitled Art Fair

Kunsthall Stavanger Presents Lina Viste Grønli at Untitled Art Fair

Lina Viste Grønli, Time Piece (Champion Sweatshirt), 2017. Sweatshirt, clock movement.


Kunsthall Stavanger is pleased to announce our participation at Untitled Art Fair in San Francisco, January 12-14. We will present new works by Norwegian artist Lina Viste Grønli (b. 1976 in Stavanger). Viste Grønli was the first artist exhibited at Kunsthall Stavanger when the institution opened in 2013.

In her latest body of work, Time Pieces, everyday objects and discarded items are transformed into timekeeping devices. By adding functioning clock hands and motors to a towel, a shoe, and a sweater, she raises awareness of the transitory nature of objects and the way in which they give meaning to concepts of time.

At the fair, we will also launch Lina Viste Grønli's new book On Books, edited by Tom Lingnau and published by Weinspach. The book is available for purchase at Kunsthall Stavanger.

Lina Viste Grønli has exhibited at MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; Sculpture Center, New York; Kunsthalle Wien; Marres Centre for Contemporary Culture, Maastricht; Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels; Performa 09, New York; Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Bærum; and Gaudel de Stampa, Paris. She lives and works in Somerville, USA.

In addition to artworks by Viste Grønli, Kunsthall Stavanger's limited editions and catalogs will be available for sale. The editions are made by Judith Bernstein, Margrethe Aanestad, Frode Felipe Schjelderup, and Lina Viste Grønli.

The project has received the generous support from Office for Contemporary Art (OCA) and City of Stavanger.
