Flower compostitions inspired by the Japanese Ikebana are placed in front of monochrome photographs mounted on the wall. In addition to beeing a three-dimensional still life, the work is an exercise in the phenomena physiological colours.

To celebrate Morten Krohg’s retrospective and his work with the GRAS group, Kunsthall Oslo is pleased to announce The Positive Void, a series of ten new screenprint commissions from Norwegian artists. The prints are being produced at Fellesverkstedet, and the project will be launched with a temporary flyposted exhibition on the side wall of Møllergata 37 in central Oslo (alongside the shop Flirt – on the pedestrian path between Møllergata and Grubbegata). There will be an open air reception from 7-7.30pm on Friday 4th April, all welcome, refreshments will be served.
The title of the project, ‘The Positive Void’, is taken from Katanyi and Vaneigem’s 1961 Basic Program of the Bureau of Unitary Urbanism, Section Six, ‘All space is already occupied by the enemy…’. The title also describes the process of screenprinting, in which a void on the screen produces a positive imprint.
