UKS, Keysers gate 1


Artist MARTIN WHITE and UKS director Miriam Wistreich delve into the weird and fascinating history of Carl Wilhelm Sem-Jacobsen. Unfolding White’s encyclopaedic knowledge of Sem-Jacobsen’s archive, the talk will touch on questions of power, authorship and consent, and attempt to understand what BIG SCIENCE as an artistic research project is really, truly, actually all about.

Martin White (b. 1978, AU) lives and works in Oslo. He is a graduate from Oslo National Academy of the Arts, RMIT University in Melbourne and Victorian College of the Arts at the University of Melbourne. Recent exhibitions include Is this OK? at Oslo Kunstforening (2019) and Dust Biter at Tokonoma at Melk, Oslo (2018). White’s work has been included in Project Anywhere (2023), Høstutstillingen at Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2021) and Making Sense Together at Norsk Teknisk Museum, Oslo (2017). Prior to his career as a visual artist, White directed performance, film and television. He also writes essays and reviews alongside researching and teaching.
