This week, HC Gilje is in our video studio working on a project for The North Norwegian Art Centre (NNKS).
Gilje has been involved with the coastal fishing community in Vardø and 3D scanned their fishing equipment and sheds. He is now making a 3D work, based on the material, to be presented in Vardø 17–20 February 2022. See the NNKS website for details (in Norwegian).
Stills: HC Gilje.
HC Gilje has moved between installation, experimental video, live performance and set design since he graduated from the intermedia department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Trondheim in 1999. In his longer term project called Conversations with Spaces, he explores, mainly through large-scale installations, perception of change and transformation in the meeting between the ephemeral media of light, projection, sound and motion with physical structures. These projects have been shown in traditional gallery spaces, outdoors and in more unconventional settings. http://hcgilje.com/
