At Cassis the stones, the fish

the rocks seen through a magnifying glass,

the salt of the sea, and the sky

made me forget that man is important,

they urged me to turn my back

on the chaos of human affairs

they showed me eternity

in the little waves of the harbor

which are always the same without being the same.

Nothing can be explained, all we know is the appereance.

Det handler ikke om flukt (it’s not a question of escaping)

Anngjerd Rustand

Opening Friday October 28th, 7 pm.

Open Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of October, 12:00 – 16:00.

Later, at one point, I realized that the Tintin comics about the Moon were created seventeen years prior to the first Moon landing. This had been my image of the moon, and it somehow continues to be, the pale Apollo photographs did not have the same immersive power. This was a serious story about a grown up world, perhaps impossible to reach.

Hergé hardly left his own house; he based his comics on clippings from books and newspapers.

His body of work was marked by artistic compromise.

Det handler ikke om flukt is a remake of Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon, where all traces of human existence have been attempted removed. All that remains is fragmented, repetitive landscapes seen from the earth, from space and from the moon. For the Holodeck exhibition the 128 book pages are hung in two roughly circular formations.

Anngjerd Rustand (1982) is a visual artist and writer based in Berlin and Bergen. She is part of the artist collective Ytter, and she is an editorial member of the literary journal Vagant.  She was educated at Bergen National Academy of the Arts and Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.

The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway and Opplandsutstillingen 2011/Oppland Art Center

Holodeck presents The Foreignness of Her / Iselin Linstad Hauge

Opening October 14th at 7pm

Open: October 14th – 16th, 12:00 – 16:00
a film by Iselin Linstad Hauge

Despite our patterns
which are more regular than anything I share
with another person
she still feels unpredictable to me.

Despite our closeness
I am occasionally thrilled
and even a bit scared
by the foreignness of her.

Iselin Linstad Hauge primarily works with video and photography. Through a poetic approach she sheds a light upon human existential themes, particularly our resistance to recognize our own mortality. Linstad Hauge gives form to the unknowable, or untouchable through an intense and maximized presence with the subject in front of her camera.
