Famlende Forsøk

Famlende Forsøk is a unique troupe from Arendal. They have roamed unhindered around the Norwegian underground music scene since 1981, and they have their origins in a small milieu around the cassette label SHiT Tapes. The do-it-yourself mindset and post-punk attitude from the late 1970s stand out sharply in Famlende Forsøk's expression. Initially, they played on instruments and equipment they had not fully mastered, but it was precisely that, which gave them a distinctively loose sound. This concert was originally performed as part of a sound poetry day in collaboration with Oslo International Poetry Festival.

The inaugural Triennial for Photography and New Media at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter foregrounds practices from contemporary photography, while also articulating a keen sensitivity towards the history of photography and art. Abstraction, digital and manual collage, new configurations of still life and the human body are key tendencies. The triennial presents works from 31 artists that are produced within the last three years. Several are exhibited for the first time. This online presentation is a virtual tour in five chapters. In Chapter one we present works by: Maya Rochat, B. Ingrid Olson, Victoria Fu & Matt Rich, Hannah Whitaker, Espen Gleditsch, Asger Carlsen, Lucile Boiron, Viviane Sassen, Paul Mpagi Sepuya and Ingrid Eggen.

New Visions: Red Film

→ Watch now

Sara Cwynar (b. Vancouver, 1985) is one of the 31 artists presented in New Visions: The Henie Onstad Triennial for Photography and New Media. She is represented with two works in the exhibition. Cwynar creates what she refers to as “intensive collages”: photographs and videos that abound with images and objects she sources from flea markets, eBay, and the like. Deploying visual strategies associated with advertising and graphic design, and a variety of art historical references, she investigates the construction of identity and affective modulation through consumption. In the video Red Film (2018), Cwynar playfully and critically probes the cultural color coding of mass-produced consumer objects, such as cosmetics, shoes, and cars. Why do we conceive a synthetically manufactured red lip color as seductive rather than machinic? Here Cwynar combines disparate quotes from reknown thinkers to a reflection on how persuasive capitalist mechanisms are directed at women to conform and consume. Shortly a digital presentation of the entire exhibition will be available here, at Art Channel.

The Great Monster Dada Show

→ Watch now

Dada is an avantgarde art movement in the early 20th century, a rebel and a liberating way of thinking. This major exhibition recently presented the historical works of the Dada movement with a contemporary side program pinpointing how the avant-garde ideas are of great relevance today. Several of the concerts and performances that will be presented here, on the Henie Onstad Art Channel, were performed as a side program to the exhibition, and we recommend to experience them together. Stay tuned!

Arnold Haukeland 100 years

→ Watch now

28 March 2020 we celebrate the 100 years jubilee of the Norwegian artist Arnold Haukeland (1920–1983). Originally a grand guided tour was planned from Sandvika to Høvikodden, celebrating all the Haukeland sculptures in the area. But because of the corona situation the event unfortunately had to be cancelled. Instead, the Director of the Henie Onstad, Tone Hansen, gives us a digital introduction. To all our viewers in the Oslo area, please note, the sculpture park at Høvikodden is open and accessible to you all – as long as you follow the advice from the Institute of Public Health. Please take care and enjoy!

Statement

We know the importance of art – especially in difficult times. Shutting down will never be an alternative. Because of the corona crisis, new digital ways of presenting art are more relevant than ever. As a museum we keep our promise to the public: to keep on presenting art.

We have asked artists, partners and audiences how the museum can present a curated artistic program with high quality. Important messages are: Take care of the artist. Never conflate commercial values with the work itself. Value the entire ecosystem of the art world. Pay for work. Encourage the audience to focus on the work and the experience itself.

With this in mind, we decided to build a new non-commercial digital platform. At Henie Onstad Art Channel we will stream hidden gems from the archive every Thursday at 8pm CET, available for our audience one week at a time. Most audiovisual works presented have originally been commissioned by the Art Center and we will keep on working to create more and new work. In addition you find online guided tours from the temporarily closed exhibitions at the museum.

With this site we will contribute with our love, passion and belief in art and we hope you will enjoy it, just as much as we do.

Please note, all the work has been done in exactly two weeks from conception to launch. Trouble shooting and bug fixing will therefore be done on the fly.

Henie Onstad Art Channel is supported by Fritt Ord Foundation.
