Flag of the Week: Sammy Engramer
In 2014, Kunsthall Stavanger is excited to host the entire range of curator Randi Berger’s flag project, now in it’s fourth iteration (previous sites include New York City, Bergen, and Nesflaten). Each flag (there are 53 altogether) has been individually commissioned by Berger from a wide range of Norwegian and international artists and collectives, and will be flown outside of the Kunsthall Stavanger one at a time, for one week each over the course of the year.
Sunday March 9 - Sunday March 16: Sammy Engramere: A flag contract (welcome to Nesflaten Community!)
“In November 2012, I came to Nesflaten, Norway to do a residency organized by the French institution ArtConnexion, and was hosted by L/R Residency. During fifteen days I met different people to understand what kind of possibilities I had to propose a new symbol and flag for the community there. The result is a traditional coat of arms mixed with modern industry, using graphic tools to animate different activities taking place in Nesflaten. Now the flag is arriving New York, and represents the Nesflaten community to a new and larger audience.”— Sammy Engramer
