A joint exhibition with Kari Dyrdal opened at Trondheim Kunstforening on October 10th., featuring several digitally woven tapestries, three video works for monitors/tv screens, two digital photographic prints and a new collaborative work combining textile and video. The exhibition runs until 3rd. November and is open each week from Thursday to Sunday.
The new, collaborative piece was woven in the digital lab at the Textiles Museum in Tilburg, The Netherlands, where Kari Dyrdal has been producing work since the early 2000's. It is a semi-translucent, free-hanging piece, viewable from both sides. Two HD video projections are combined. The woven piece is based on an abstracted image of a rippling water surface, combined with vertical stripes in a highly reflective material. The projected images are also sourced from footage focussing on water surfaces and reflections in water. Ambient sounds of water are played back in the exhibition from two of the video works shown on monitors.
