Marit Helen Akslen: White dress, 2007Constructions

Contemporary Norwegian arts and crafts

This exhibition of contemporary Norwegian arts and crafts is based on the concept of “construction” – in the sense of the way something is put together. It presents artists´ approach of construction in different ways, mainly in relation to wood and textiles. One thing they have in common is that they have developed their own, individual methods of construction to establish the formal, structural and organizational fundament for their particular visual expressions. The exhibition features a variety of works, ranging from formal to conceptual expressions, some with strong traditional roots and others that are more experimental, but all with a basis in the traditions of arts and crafts.
