I’ve seen two interesting exhibitions recently, the first being Berg Størseth’s master degree show at KHM Gallery. The flyer was an animation of squares and circles, printed on plastic and paper, as you can see above. Ejected From an Ion Source closed today, but keep an eye out for news on his website. The most impressive work was an installation of three paintings covered with heat-reactive paint. Three spotlights directed at the respective paintings switched on in sequence, revealing a motif underneath the first layer of each painting.
The other exhibition was Universal Appeal by Dora Budor & Maja Cule at CEO Gallery. It featured video works and some quite fascinating still life photographs of people and objects covered in various types of texture. Here’s one with woodgrain, that unexplainably gave me associations to The Neverending Story (1984).
