In her solo exhibition “Standard Primitives”, Magnhild Øen Nordahl presents three new works made especially for this exhibition at Hordaland kunstsenter: A sculpture series, an animation film and a video work. Filming and editing is supported by BEK.

Is it possible to experience the roundness of the earth, to sense it through our corporeal perception and ability of movement? Could you get closer to understanding taught theory and cosmic proportions through the use of tools in your hands?
