Upcoming at BERGEN KJØTT [2nd floor]

24.05–23.06. About Description by Claude Iverné: We are exited to announce this upcoming photo exhibition at Bergen Kjøtt. A photographic record about the rashness of an ineluctable modernity, from local self-sufficiency cultures in Sudan in the context of a global market economy. Claude Iverné’s works vibrates between an anthropological approach and a silent intuitive and lyrical exploration in which the visitor is inticed to find his own way. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with Theatergarasjen.

Anja Carr talkes about her upcoming exhibition at Bergen Kjøtt in a recent interview with PAPER magazine (NYC). She says the fact that Bergen Kjøtt is a former meat factory coincidentally relates to some of her work, such as when she uses bacon as material for sculptures.” I think I need to further explore meat-based materials for this exhibition somehow,” says Carr – and we can’t wait to see it!
