FeLT project leader Kristin Bergaust visited the podcast Kunstpodden to record the episode Nære omgivelser (close surroundings). In the episode Bergaust talks about how we can understand and interpret the works of the artists Hans Kristian Borchgrevink Hansen, Tone Bjordam and the artist group nabbteeri. The works are shown at Kunstbanken, Hedmark Kunstsenter where Kristin Bergaust held the opening speech. Read the full speech here
Their works are all centered around the thematic of nature in one way or another. Nature, in the context of art history, goes a long way back. In Nære omgivelser Kunstpodden and Bergaust look at how nature and ecology can be interpreted in a contemporary context, and at how art can perhaps be used as a tool to navigate the future.
