Exhibitions

Architect and artist Mikkel Wennesland sets up an installation over the fountain at Stasjonsallmenningen. In a work where the existing water jets meet introduced elements, the struggle between the sustainability movement and an established framework of ingrained habits and systems is reproduced. Visitors are invited to take part in and activate themselves in a dance between liquid and solid form.

Designer and illustrator Maja Stabel from Trondheim work with zero waste clothing design. She transfers her illustrations to the clothes in the form of both paint and embroidery and in this way explores how to give the clothes a greater emotional value.

Photographers Lisa Westgaard and Dusan Reljin show photographs set against each other in contrast to the fact that Reljin's motifs consist of untouched nature, and Westgaard shows plastic that has been left in nature, but collected and put together in beautiful compositions inspired by famous works of art.

Designer Veja Kocarik studies local clothing phenomena and translates them into a modern and transcultural setting. In the village of Radosovce (Slovakia) there are 14 women who still make all their clothes at home. These women develop a relationship with clothes like no other. The exhibition is a tribute to them and their craft.

Artist Tyler Metzger likes to use characters from games, movies or his own imagination. In the series "Reeces" he deals with characters he wants to be in his own free time. With this as a reference, he creates images that are both rough and childish.

Designers Tonje Plur and Elisabeth Stray Pedersen exhibit their collaboration with Fretex where they explore the value of a garment in a raw material perspective. In their work with clothing, they have become increasingly concerned with challenging the traditional production systems, by thinking of alternative ways of giving materials new value and exploring new possibilities for local circular cycles.

Artist Maria Maaneskiold exhibits illustrated works that focus on identity and self-esteem. How the way you look on the outside makes you feel on the inside - and how you feel on the inside makes you look on the outside.

Designer Martin Evensen shows through photography the value chain, raw material and design perspective of the shoe brand New Movements. Through their work, they focus on circular economy through the use of recycled materials, with a goal that nothing will become waste and end up in nature.

Artist Sofia Quan is exhibiting a series called "Dedicated to my fish": a series where the audience will create the narrative themselves. It is a naive approach with a focus on patterns, color and the movements that are on the surface.

Envelope1976 is a timeless Norwegian brand with a focus on sustainability and versatile use. The vision is Seasonless multi-use. The garments are designed to be used in several ways. For Envelope1976, this is the key to a more sustainable design. Their exhibition is about erasing seasons, about being transparent and inclusive. It is not only the material that can influence the timeline of a garment, but a design that lasts, which you can discover new ways of styling, year after year without the garments becoming outdated.
