Please bring your plants to this exhibition. Simply being around plants indoors has been shown to relax people and improve health. Plants are intelliget, creative organisms, just like us. Bring your plant and together we can reflect on and around the pictures and installations, watch a movie, talk and drink refreshments.
Group exhibition featuring Kari Altmann, Andreas Ervik, Espen Friberg, Øivin Horvei, Bjørn-Henrik Lybeck, Andreas Meinich, Jasper Spicero and Jessica Williams.
The opening is on Friday the 9th of May from 19:00-21:00. The exhibition will run until Sunday the 25th of May.

2 hour mix made for Fri Form Radio. The music goes from abstract to melodic and back again, searching for form, locking into patterns and disintegrating. It's called Plant Neurobiology and features some of my favorite artists, as well as a lot of new music by me.
Back in April, I gave a lecture on my blogging at Portalen Portalen for the Lewis & Clark Art Week in Portland, Oregon, US. This is now available to read here.
"There's a certain emptiness to Blogspot, which is present also in the layout of Portalen Portalen. It's standardized, clean, with a consistent format of three images/videos per post, from an artist or an exhibition. The lack of interactivity on Blogspot, and the simple layout makes it sort of like a blog version of the white cube. While Instagram might feel like an exhibition opening - lots of people chatting, no one really interested in the artwork - Portalen Portalen feels more like entering a gallery on an off-day. You're the only one inside, there's possibly a press-release, but you don't really read that. So it's just you, the name of the artist, gallery and exhibition, the white walls and the artwork."
