recently ON VIEW

BERGEN KJØTT Main Gallery [2nd floor] – Photographic Field Trip Vol. 4 • KOBIE NEL Apple Puma

Apple Puma was a living installation that was on view at Bergen Kjøtt in may 2018. Working towards keeping an active dialogue about artistic research practice and development of practice, which does not focus on finished polished objects; Apple Puma presented a challenge to notions of care, exploring its significance as an ethical and political obligation for thinking in the more than human worlds of naturecultures. Kobie has a love for colour and a unrelenting interest in the intersection of the pictorial way of looking, or thinking, with a physical matter of the body and the materiality of things in a space. She is interested in how we experience the physical world using our perceptual apparatus eyes, brain and size. Nel often creates site specific installations for the audience and herself too, that probes, provoke and simply raise awareness of this contingent universe we find ourselves in. Kobie has a research based practice and works within photography, text , video, sculpture and installation. Kobie invited musician and composer, Stephan Meidell to collaborate with the living installation as a closing for Apple Puma. Watch Stephan Meidells performance Stephan Meidell unplugged with the Canary Bird orchestra here (if you missed it).

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!
