Soft Technology i Bergen

A new Exhibition Soft Technology in Bergen

Galleri 3,14
Vågsallmenningen 12, 5014 Bergen


Exhibition period August 20. – September 25. 2011



After a successful exhibition at SOFT gallery in Oslo we are now happy to present the exhibition Soft Technology at Gallery 3,14 in Bergen.

The exhibition is expanded and shows works by nine artists/artist groups and a collection of prototypes and samples from participants in the Soft Technology research project. Lydgalleriet is also taking the opportunity to curate a sound piece for the Parabol-series in the passage of the gallery.

Concerts performed on the piece ”Mønsterundersøkelser av lyd nr 1” will be played on weekends during the exhibition period, and Wednesday 31 August 5pm there will be a book launch of “The Temporary Embassy” by Anders Rubing.

The Norwegian and International artists featured in the exhibition use smart materials, e-textile, traditional electronics and textile techniques as a starting point for the development of their art. The nine artworks have different approaches to the materials and tell different stories, but they are bound together by the search for giving the unstable, unknown and unpredictable form and visuality.

Soft Technology is produced by Atelier Nord in collaboration with Bergen National Academy of the Arts and Gallery 3,14. Curator is Hillevi Munthe.

The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway, Nordic Culture Point, The City of Bergen, Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts, The Embassy of Austria, Hordaland County, Governo do Estado Sao Paulo and Museu da Imagem e do Som – Sao Paulo.
