Hanne Lippard and Bendik Giske – A performative dialogue

This Saturday evening, join Kunsthall Stavanger for a special performance with artists Hanne Lippard and Bendik Giske. In conjunction with Hanne Lippard's current exhibition at the Kunsthall titled, Ulyd, the artist will collaborate with musician Bendik Giske to create a performative dialogue that lingers between the lines of linguistic content and abstract melody.

Read more about the exhibition Ulyd, here, and book your tickets to the closing performance here.

Hanne Lippard’s practice explores the voice as a medium. Her education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative, and her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance.

Bendik Giske (Smalltown Supersound) is a saxophonist and composer whose work explores the tension between the performative and corporeal boundaries of the instrument and his body. Fusing extended techniques with elements that draw from electronic music, his work traverses genre. His collaborations include music for dance, performance - and visual art as well as installations. His work has recently been commissioned by Lafayette Anticipations and he has performed at clubs, festivals and art institutions including Berghain, Art Basel, MoMA PS1, New Museum in New York, ICA and Frieze in London, Berlin Biennale, Øya Festivalen and the Oslo Opera.

Welcome Violet Dennison!

Welcome Violet Dennison!

We are pleased to welcome Violet Dennison to the Kunsthall Stavanger Artist Residency this month!

The Residency is an extension of the Kunsthall’s stated mission to serve as a platform for the production, exhibition, and distribution of artworks that are part of a large international discourse. The residency's accommodation is situated on the beautiful Gandsfjord outside Stavanger, and provides each resident with the possibility to work peacefully in serene surroundings. Each residency will result in a project at Kunsthall Stavanger such as an exhibition, presentation, performance, or other event.

Violet Dennison is the second resident in 2018, and she will be staying onsite in Stavanger from October 11 - November 2.

In her work, Dennison investigates paranoia, power, and self expression, while exploring our relationship to the ecologically and technologically unstable world. Vast systems become fragile or hacked, and small parts of the whole such as code, DNA and bacteria become principal actors, questioning the role of infrastructure and its ability to shape human behavior and language.

On October 25 at 19:00, the artist will give a lecture presenting her practice at Kunsthall Stavanger. The event is free and open to the public.

Violet Dennison's most recent exhibitions include Triennial: Songs for Sabotage, New Museum, New York; Abracadabra, Main Project of the 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Moscow; and Schau 5, Kunsthaus Kollitsch, Klagenfurt. Learn more about the artist on her website, here.

The Kunsthall Stavanger Residency is co-founded by Aud Cuniberti and managed by Kunsthall Stavanger. Residency Coordinator: Liv Cuniberti.

Judder Shudder: Act II at Kunsthall Stavanger

Kunsthall Stavanger invites you to a special performance with British artists Jonathan Baldock and Florence Peake this Friday, September 14 at 6pm.

British artist Jonathan Baldock works across multiple platforms including sculpture, installation and performance. His multi-media sculptures, immersive installations and performances often take on a biographical form through which he addresses the trauma, stress, sensuality, mortality, and spirituality around our relationship to the body and the space it inhabits. Concerned with removing the functional aspects of the materials he engages (namely textiles and ceramics), Baldock instead works in a performative way through his sculptural assemblages bringing the viewer, the object and the space they occupy into question as a ritual act or theatre.

For his performance at Kunsthall Stavanger titled Judder Shudder: Act II, Baldock works with long-time collaborator, artist, and choreographer Florence Peake to create an intimate performance that blurs delineations between sculpture, costume, performer, and audience to create an act of absurd ritualism, at once humorous and emotionally tense. Originally performed in the galleries of Tate St Ives in April, 2018, Judder Shudder: Act II took inspiration from the theatricality of Barbara Hepworth’s wheeled plinths in her studio at the Palais de Danse (St Ives). The work has been reimagined for Kunsthall Stavanger's space and combines costume and sculpture to be animated and performed by the artists together with local artists Elisabeth Gangnes and Lene Aareskjold.

The performance will be followed by a conversation between Baldock and Adam Smythe, Curator at Bluecoat. The project is a collaboration with Bluecoat in Liverpool.
