Welcome to the opening November 18 at kl. 18 – 20
March 7, 2020, Terje Nicolaisen had a severe prolapse that led to a prolonged locking in the lower back. Usually such pain disappears after a couple of weeks, but since the country closed down at the same time and thus also Terje’s regular fitness center and sauna, the prolapse got stuck and the productive artist has to this day walked with his back at an angle, with consequent reduced work capacity. Nevertheless, Nicolaisen has produced 20 new paintings in which the contradictory, aging and vulnerable body has become a recurring theme, in an attempt to overcome the body’s relentless limitations. As Terje Nicolaisen himself says: “All I can think about now is dancing!”
In addition, Nicolaisen has played with a suggestion for a new clothing collection under the brand name NO. The collection consists of dresses, T-shirts, shawls and ties where some can be used, while others are more sculptural.
Terje Nicolaisen (b. 1964) graduated from the Art Academy in Trondheim and the Bergen Academy of the Arts and has for two decades had a large number of solo exhibitions, including at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Kunstnerforbundet, Tromsø kunstforening, Tegnerforbundet, Kunstnerforbundet. He has also participated in a large number of group exhibitions, including at the National Museum, KODE, Kunsthall Oslo, Bergen Kunsthall, Momentum and in the Autumn Exhibition. Nicolaisen is also one of the members of the Drawing Club. He is a sought-after teacher at, among others, the Oslo School of Architecture, the Bergen Academy of the Arts and the Project School.
All artists are invited to RENTSNUK DANCING!
Wednesday 24.11.2021 from kl. 17 …
RENTSNUK DANCING is a site-specific work by Terje Nicolaisen with the desire to give positive energy to BOA, members and all the artists after a long pandemic, with suggestions about using Anatomibygningen as a collegial meeting place where artists meet to hang.
“We are alone on the studios or at home (thank goodness) but we need a place to go to meet colleagues. If there will be dancing or not is secondary.”
We serve soup and home brewed beer to self-cost. Terje Nicolaisen plays his best Spotifylist.
We make Átisuto Soup (today’s fish, lychee, lemon grass, asparagus beans, fresh red chili, spinach blades, funds, sesame oil etc.)
