Atelier Nord is pleased to present the programme Beyond Horizons, Atelier Nord’s programme at this years Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF), at Atelier Nord ANX. Beyond Horizons focuses on artists that question the governance of natural ressources in Northern Norway and the High North, including the right to land and sea.
The films shown in the program also relate to a tradition within visual art dealing with Northern Norway. Since the 15th Century Northern Norway has been a popular motive for scientists, artists and travellers. While an outside gaze for a long time characterized the schema of Northern Norway within visual arts, the creation of a Northern Norwegian identity and the revitalisation of Sami and Kven culture contributed to the creation of an inside gaze from 1970s and onwards.
Beyond Horizons is curated by Hanne Hammer Stien and produced by Ivar Smedstad and Nina Toft. Participating artists are Geir Tore Holm, Siri Hermansen, Matti Aikio, Karianne Stensland, Tanya Busse, Emilija Skarnulyte, Kjetil Berge and Oliver Ressler.
Beyond Horizons is part of the project Show Video Art! which aims to establish a national network of screening locations that can present video art programmes curated by Atelier Nord to a wider audience.
