AN ARCHIPELAGO MIXTAPE
A soundtrack for the summer: Archipelago turns into a listening station for an audible exhibition. You can listen to the works in the exhibition space or download the exhibition to your phone or laptop.
The tracks on this mixtape are newly commissioned works by seven artists and writers; Kristin Austreid, Ingrid Furre, Jason-Hendrik Hansma, Audun Mortensen, Rosalie Schweiker, Femke de Vries, and Inger Wold Lund. The various nature of their works and interests brings us a sequential variety of pieces from carefully constructed soundtracks, extracts from a study in clothing descriptions, various poems, a field recording near a newly discovered city in the Cambodian jungle, a song against sexism, and 5 erotic stories.
The website will go live on the opening day, Friday 24 of June:
An Archipelago Mixtape is curated by Mathijs van Geest, and supported by Bergen City and the Arts Council Norway.
Archipelago is a small, flexible platform for showing individual works and installations in a focused but open environment. Located on the ground floor of Hordaland kunstsenter, adjacent to a larger, more formal exhibition space, Archipelago works with the constraint of limited physical space in order to explore the changing modalities of artworks in the age of virtual space. Archipelago is programmed with short lead times for each new project, with the intention of reinserting curatorial agility and real-time engagement into the institution. This initiative follows a different schedule to Hordaland kunstsenter’s main exhibition programme, and is conceived as a group of ‘thought islands’ appearing in time.
Hordaland Art Centre based in Bergen, Norway was established 1976 as the first artist run art centre in Norway. Its activities are based around the exhibition programme with equal emphasis on seminars, presentations and dialogue. Since 1987 Hordaland Art Centre has hosted a Nordic residency programme, from 2008 also open to international artists, curators, writers and other art professionals.
