Linn Halvorsrød is awarded the NTNU artist for 2015/2016. The jury notes "her work 'Eventry' exhibits an unusually exuberant facility and energetic handling of material without affectation or pretense. Ingenuous freedom is conveyed by the artist, Linn Halvorsrød and her vigorous use of form and colour is most immediately evident. The atypical faerie tale landscape is one of the distinctive features guiding and enchanting the viewer out of these new dark ages we currently imbued by."
The NTNU artist award was given at the opening of Trøndelagsutstillingen 39. Each year the Regional Trøndelag Exhibition presents a variety of new contemporary art. The artworks are selected by a jury, and all artists have a connection to the Trøndelag area: they may be students from the Art Academy in Trondheim, or professional or non-established artists, all exhibiting here together. This is a unique chance to see fresh and exciting new contemporary art created in our own time relating to our society, culture and the world we are a part of.
