If on a winter’s night, a room er en offentlig videovisning, holdt over syv netter – midt på vinteren. Videovisningen består av en serie på syv korte og tause videoverk av syv unge norske og internasjonale kunstnere – en video per natt.

Åpning; 10 Jan. @ 20:00 While 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’.
