Anne Marthe Dyvi has been the Artistic Developer at BEK since December 1, 2010. From now on she has chosen to be a full-time artist. We hope everyone will join us on Thursday June 20 from 21.00 to celebrate 9 years with Anne Marthe, and wish her all the best of luck with artistic projects in the future.
The first large project Anne Marthe developed at BEK was RAD; a series of single events that stretched from 2011 – 2015, in collaboration with Espen Sommer Eide. RAD gave us artistic experiences in unfamiliar surroundings such as in composer cabins, on mountain peaks, in courtrooms and in old schools. In 2011, she invited video artists to look at the facade of Håkonshallen as a “screen”, and illuminate the building on the occasion of its 750th anniversary (read more here and here). In 2013, the Sisyfos-work on an art installation for the Herlandsfossen power station at Osterøy began, a project that culminated with SPRANG at Osterøy Museum in the fall of 2018. Anne Marthe curated the art program for the Light Art Festival in Solund in 2013 and 2014. In 2015 she was responsible for a proper celebration of BEK’s 15-year anniversary. For the second edition of Bergen Assembly in 2016, Anne Marthe made it happen in collaboration with BEK. For several years she was a member of the resource group for Videokunstarkivet and she sat on the board of PNEK. It was also Anne Marthe who, with her collaborative abilities, got BEK in the EU, through Future DiverCities (FDC) – a four-year project in collaboration with partners from Europe and Canada to explore new models for artistic development and distribution, and for the promotion of cultural diversity .
Anne Marthe leaves behind a fresh new (refurbished) BEK, and a BEK, which through exploratory artistic projects has opened itself up to the art field and stands strong as one of the groundbreakers in art and technology. We wish her the best of luck in the future, and hope to see her often at BEK to work on her art projects!
