Between Being (for Galleri Format), 2021


Between Being is a work created for Galleri Format and the anniversary exhibition Are We Human. It’s a work which seeks to include the environment in its very form. Engaging in an explicit relationship with its environment, pursuing a situation in which the border between work and context is breathing. An image of light appears in the work which is mimicking the distinct geometrical structure in the ceiling of the gallery.

Group exhibition featuring works by Annike Flo, Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Leif Stangebye-Nielsen, Helene Duckert, Tanya Busse, Jakob Oredsson, Kåre Grundvåg, Jorge Manilla and Sigrid Espelien. Curated by Ida Bringedal and Ida Olesdatter Barland. Supported by Norske Kunsthåndverkere and Kunsthåndverkernes fond.

Symbiotic Scenes, 2021


Symbiotic Scenes is a public scenographic work appearing on the vacant plot in front of Scene 1 and TOU Scene in Stavanger. It's the first work of three, constituting the artistic research project Scenography as Symbiosis developed by Jakob Oredsson, artist, architect, scenographer and current research fellow at Norwegian Theatre Academy (HiØ). Scenography is imagined as symbiosis with reference to the philosophical school Object-Oriented Ontology as influenced by Lynn Margulis theories on symbiosis.

Symbiotic Scenes seeks solidarity with the endless variety of spatiotemporal scales coexisting within and forming the context. As scenography, it endeavors to exist through relation with and description of the environment, tuning with it, queering binaries such as active-passive, time-space, encouraging acceptance of difference and appreciation of strangeness.

Underlying Resonance

ALEKSANDER JOHAN ANDREASSEN (NO) OLIA GOROHOVA (BY) ELIN MARIA JOHANSSON (SE) JAKOB OREDSSON (SE)

10/5-2/6 2019

Curators: Emm Berring, Madelaine Sillfors and Sofia Wickman

Underlying Resonance looks into phenomena invisible to the naked eye, but which remains always in our midst. Through movement and action an inner monologue becomes external. What was always present and unseen is elevated to a reality we can't evade. Deviations in predictable human behaviour and appearance are transformed into figurative compositions which illustrate the collision of inner conflicts. Birds teeming in an emergent air dance reminds us of our own vulnerability in a time without coexistence. The exhibition weaves together four different artistic practices. They intertwine and interact, creating a new context, sharing an underlying resonance.
