On February 20, the children from the Art Club will work with performance artist Anne-Marte Eidseth Rygh. With the body as a starting point, she explores place, time and action.
The Art Club is for children in 1st to 8th grade. The Art Club introduces children to contemporary art in a fun and accessible way. Here, we explore what contemporary art is, and what kind of experiences and tools we can bring from art into our everyday lives. The children will meet and work with professional artists, and get explore our exhibitions together with our skilled educators. At the end of each semester we organise an exhibition for family and friends.
The theme for the 2022 semester was how we express ourselves in society. Together we explores how we receive and share information. Inspired by this spring's exhibition Vision Machines by Peggy Ahwesh, we asked how we can create new expressions by combining familiar forms. How can this help us see things from new perspectives?
Anne Marte Eidseth Rygh has practiced as a performance artist for the last 15 years. The artist is educated in the art, psychotherapy, film and music. With the body as a starting point, she explores place, time and action. A visual sensation, an interaction with those present and collaboration with actors in psychology and social policy. Rituals and psycho-dynamic fields are themes where phenomenology, existentialism perception and holism lie as theoretical grounds. The artist teaches performance art, critical theory, curates and has experience with workshops and groups.
