Edvine Larssen is a Norwegian artist and researcher working on the thresholds between various fields through architectonic installations, durational performative works using directing as both material and method, and various publications. All her works are site-bound and are to be experienced, through spending time while moving inside of, and as part of the works, often led by performers. Her passage works are using both time and space as active material components.
Edvine Larssen has trained as an artist in England (Ba. Honours 2001), Norway (Mfa 2005) and Japan (Diploma 2007). She holds a Doctorate degree from the Norwegian Programme for Artistic Research at KIT/NTNU from 2018, where she has been researching the Japanese concept of [Ma] through both qualitative research methods and site related art-practices involving physical presence in various ways. Edvine Larssen has been commissioned to make site bound works for places like: Tromsø Kunstforening, SALT, Trondheim international festival for performative arts, Kunstnernes Hus, TSSK and Nordenfjeldske museum for art and design. She currently holds a two year work grant for artists from Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond and is working towards new solo works in collaboration with Rake and LevArt.
Tanya Busse (CAN / NOR) visual artist currently living and working in Tromsø, Norway.
Her practice raises questions concerning deep-time, invisible architecture and larger systems of power, with an experimental and often playful approach. She works primarily with video, installation and printed matter. Alongside her own artistic practice, she is also involved in the organization of various artistic and curatorial platforms, through her role as co-director of Small Projects Gallery (Tromsø) and co-director of Mondo Books, an independent book distro that focuses on art publications, fanzines, and printed matter from the Northern region.
She studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee, and holds a masters degree from the Academy of Contemporary Art in Tromsø.
SMØR Press is an independent and small publishing house based in Trondheim. It was founded and is run by the artist Carlos A. Correia and the designer Joana Bruno, and self-oriented for art related books using Risography as a strong and unique technique. They also started SMØR Studio, a, not less important, appendix of SMØR. It's here where we receive artworks from talented people and help them to develop their ideas or make the best out of them, together with the Design department, Printing Department, or both. It is a studio for artists and creatives that want to explore Risography.
