Oslo Open at Atelier Nord ANX

ORP2 and PRAKSIS come together to present a selection of work at Atelier Nord ANX. Also featured is, Video Open, a film program curated by Janne Talstad.

ORP2 exhibition II: Artists with studios at Olaf Ryes Plass 2 come together for the second year running to exhibit at Atelier Nord ANX. The exhibition will feature ‘Live radio’ – FORBAUSET OG FRIGJORT (Bewildered and free). A kind of dementia school, a performance and a radio program, with live music by Maria Due and interviews with, amongst others, Audun Myskja – all put together by Søssa Jørgensen and Yngvild Færøy. This takes place from 15.30 on Sunday 17 April (duration 45 min.).

ORP2 participating artists include: Simona Barbera, Sara Christensen, Ina Eriksen, Yngvild Færøy/Søssa Jørgensen, Marthe Ramm Fortun, Maria Sundby, Janne Talstad, True Solvang Vevatne.

The Video Open film program is derived from the idea of Open Source, which means the open video is a video that can be freely used, changed, and shared. Thus the program in Video Open can be changed by both the curator and the artists involved over time. The program stays the same, with alterations based on natural needs. The program becomes a vessel for content, and in the arbitrary of the diverse content curatorial challenges will become obvious, which again creates the need for curatorial narration in the program.
Still the Academy was a starting point, not a conclusion.

Established in 2015, PRAKSIS brings international and local creatives to work together across disciplines in Oslo through a thematically led residency programme.
