If on a winter’s night, a room is a public video screening program held over seven nights in the heart of winter. It features a series of seven short and silent video works by seven young norwegian and international artists – one artist video per night.
10 Jan. Opening Night @ 20:00While the subject matter ranges from natural phenomena to fictionalised objects to performative video, the works share a certain slowness and subtlety that requires a patient contemplative approach.
The works function as luminous backgrounds, with a slow and creeping build-up. They are subtly surreal, which engenders a shift in how one observes the real surrounding and the depicted space of the video. The eeriness and lightness of the video works encourage a folding back upon ourselves, and a folding back upon our own way of ‘looking’, offering conditions for interiorising subjective spaces into a ‘room of one’s own’.
