August 20th- September 18th, 2011
Sveinung Rudjord Unneland
Vernissage Friday August 19th / 7pm, Nøstegaten 42
Exhibition premises are totally transformed by Unneland when he presents a shrunken version of Entrée, which transforms the gallery space into one immersive sculpture. The down scaled gallery displays new sculptures and inlaid in the walls a series of paintings witch are accessible from both sides. In addition, Unneland uses the windows as canvases for the work Jigsaw and from the speakers you`ll hear the sound piece Underneath produced in collaboration with Kjetil Bjøreid Aabø.
With the stated inspiration from Kurt Schwitters Merzbau, Unneland has created a site-specific work at Entrée. Through the exploration of the specific and formal room, issues seem to increasingly touch upon living conditions in a broader sense. The works alternate between formal research and subjective expression, as a conflict between private and public sphere.
Sveinung Unneland (b.1981) lives and works in Bergen. Unneland is educated from Bergen National Academy of the Arts and Kunsthochscule Berlin-Weissense. Unneland has exhibited among other places at Hordaland Kunstsenter, Galleri LNM, Kunstnerforbundet, Christianssands Kunstforening, Lautom Contemporary and Høstutstillingen.
Sunday September 4th at 4pm. Artist-talk at Entrée with Sveinung Unneland. Limited seating. Sign up via firstname.lastname@example.org, or let us know.
