- Norske kunsthåndverkeres temautstilling 2018

The exhibition HUNGER explores the work of nine Nordic artists through work samples, field documentation and art works.

The exhibition HUNGER explores the work of nine Nordic artists through work samples, field documentation and art works from working in a loose collaborative conversation since 2017 in the Project HUNGER. The artists participated in three workshops aiming to research a site-specific craft technique and a raw material of each location, focusing on a different material and practice each time. In Östersund (SE) the artists explored food craft, in Vaasa (FI) they worked with reed, and in Trondheim (NO) the workshop introduced the artists to local clay that the city is built upon – blåleire (similar to London clay).

Project HUNGER’s overall scope of consideration is the shifting values of one’s artistic process focusing on research through materials that are unfamiliar. And to re-approach our conceptions of the possibilities of re-thinking with and working through what is familiar. Part of the exhibition space will be staged as a research and work area. During different events the audience will have the opportunity to experience art making up close and engage in an informal conversation about artistic processes.

HUNGER is produced by The Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts in Mid-Norway in collaboration with Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art. It is the 2018 thematic exhibition of The Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts, curated by Toril Redalen and project manager Siri Skjerve.
