“- I REREAD THE ODYSSEY LAST NIGHT”
This fall’s opening exhibition at UKS is a collaboration between artist Unn Fahlstrom and composer Øyvind Torvund. The installation takes place over three rooms where sound and video establish a composition which deals with the general notion of re-interpreting existing works of art, more specifically Jean-Luc Godard’s film Contempt (Le Mémpris) far 1963.
Using canonized movies as raw material is characteristic of Fahlstrøm’s work. In this installation lies a more basic process though, the collaboration with Torvund has resulted in an installation concerned with an exploration of the video media’s components where narration, characters, and plot are dimmed down.
