Opening reception Friday, February 17th 7 pm: "Lords of the capital, why not remain here and lengthen your days?"
0047 presents artists Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas in an exhibition exploring how ideas travel through history. The longevity, preservation and durability of ideas depend on the format of their “time vehicle”, be it in form of traditions and rituals, physical forms like books and printed money or today’s massively emerging digital storage. Bergman and Salinas expose the frailty of human history with works made by money bills, grave signage, ceramics, flowers and honorary plaques.
I've been asked to contribute with three ikebana arrangements. The ikebana arrangements are an integrated part of the exhibition, and I will be doing one of the arrangements live at the opening reception as a performance.
0047 is located at Grønland in Oslo.
The exhibition will be up until March 25.
