We welcome you Friday October 3rd from 6–9pm to an intimate opening reception and ginger shots with the artist!

To attend the opening, please rsvp entree.randi@gmail.com. The exhibition will additionally be open Saturday and Sunday, from 12- 4pm and by appointment until October 12th.

Entrée New York is a satellite that runs parallel to Entrée in Bergen, Norway (est. 2009); a non-profit, independent gallery devoted to commissioning new works and promoting young international artists, in addition to initiating public art projects and collaborations with other art institutions. Entrée is presenting five projects in New York this fall whilst occupying studio No. 221 at ISCP, bringing you highlights of our program.

For Elephant, the second exhibition in the series, artist Bjørn Mortensen will present a new version of his ongoing series of wood structures. Playfully, and without instructions, he incorrectly assembles all parts of the minimalist artist Donald Judd’s chair designs in new ways. These new and “useless” structures are combined with different materials such as clay and pigmented and moldy fabrics. The exhibition also consists of new amorphous ceramic wall pieces with colorful glaze.

Bjørn Mortensen is based in Bergen, Norway. His work has been exhibited most recently at NY Art Book Fair, MoMA PS1 (US); Kraft (NO); Spazio Gerra (IT); Tag Team (NO); Knipsu (NO); Passatge (ES); Potsyd (NO); Banská Stiavnica (SVK) and Elthorne Studios (UK). In addition to his own practice he runs a gallery, Tollbodallmenningen 39, promoting young artists from his studio space in a residential building in the city center of Bergen. Together with artist Mathijs van Geest he runs the small publishing house, Apis Press.
