Come join us at BEK for an informal guided tour through our studios and spaces, and an installation presenting a work-in-progress by our artists in studio residency Jennifer D’Amore and Enara Barnés Larrukert.
During a two-week residency in BEK sound studio, Jennifer and Enara will be developing the project Tree-Dimensions, excerpts of which will be presented under the Kulturnatt. Tree-Dimensions is a visual and aural exploration of trees, inspired by the work of the ecologist Suzanne Simard that points out the connection of and language between trees. With audio and video field recordings and a collection of observations and tools, the project will look into capturing textures and vibrations of trees and their environment, as well as their “personalities”.
Jennifer D’Amore is a US-born artist and filmmaker based in Bergen. Experimenting with different sets of dimensions, she has been creating interactive and wearable sculptures, which develop into performance pieces incorporating film and Virtual Reality. Her previous works have been represented by Art Haus International, Renee Taylor Gallery, and Horizon Art. Collaborations include co-designing a video art exhibit with Anne Magnussen at the Ilmin Museum of Art, in Seoul, and co-producing a VR prototype “Journey of Water” at the Off-Piste Virtual Storytelling lab in Norway. Jennifer served as editor and dramaturg of soon to be released documentary film “Alt for Beffen” and is currently a media producer/advisor at the Media Lab at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences in Bergen.
Enara Barnés Larrukert is an active participant and a board member of Dikkedokken Filmlaug, an organization of cross-disciplinary artists. In her work Enara primarily uses photography and film as a medium and creates abstract textural videos. She has collaborated with other artists on sound and multimedia installations and is interested in cross-disciplinary projects involving artistic experimentation. Her recent work from the experimental art collective “Wavelength” has been featured in TimeSpecific and the London Art Fair.
