MORE ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Charlotte Besuijen is an artist living and working in Bergen. She recently graduated with an MA from Art, Music and Design in Bergen. Her work departs from the idea that any material can be used as a material to make art with. The work developed for Prøverommet will be made of cardboard boxes and silver tape. Visible from the outside of Oseana, it tries to make you curious about what happens on the inside.  

Jonas Nielsen Ever since moving back to Bergen from Granada, Jonas has been exploring improvisation on the acoustic piano. Throughout his career, Jonas has visited various art scenes in Norway and Europe: As an actor on Den nationale scene, as well as a former pianist in Kakkmaddafakka, and other well-known Bergen bands. For the past two years, Jonas has played improvised piano concerts. "The first encounter with an acoustic instrument is an interesting entry for the process within the process". In this feature, Jonas will play an improvisation that begins with only two notes, leading into free flow and ending with an incomplete scale. Have a good trip!

Kristen Keegan is an artist from Alberta, Canada living in Bergen, Norway. Following an MA at the Bergen Art Academy in 2019, she has produced a number of exhibitions in Scandinavia, most recently at the Tekstilindustrimuseet in Salhus. Kristen considers herself an image-maker, engaging textile processes through the lens of painting. Pigment, cloth, wax and oil endeavor to reify our experience of the visible for what it is – unstable and incomplete. In this edition of Prøverommet, Kristen will be testing new works of a modular approach. Layered translucent textiles will be subject to the effects of twilight vision. In lieu of the clinical white of the gallery setting, a soiree of performance will form the backdrop of works exploring unexpected brightness.

Matias Grøttum  Besides hanging out in his studio, Matias works as a tour guide at Oseana every other Sunday. During the evening he will showcase his performative tour guide personality and give you a carefully selected small taste of Oseana's collection of paintings and sculptures and tell you a couple of stories about them. Grøttum works with text and its relationship to speech and storytelling through either text, performance, installations or all of the above. He often uses the City of Bergen as a backdrop for his works. 

Meg Dodini  works as a freelance artist and is currently receiving her masters degree in Dance Performance from Hollins University in Virginia, USA. Much of Meg's choreographic interests lie in the performative body and how experiences and trauma shape the perception of our own body and/or bodies around us. In Meg's practice, performance is a study of the complex emotions of an ageing body as a professional dancer – mourning and embracing what was while also appreciating and recognizing the present.
