13.06 - 11.08.13 - Opening reception Thursday 13. June 19:00
Composed of the words sliding and knowing, the Norwegian term Skyvelære means caliper, a device for measuring distance.
In the exhibition Skyvelære Ellen Røed is reflecting on devices and procedures that are used in video art and in natural sciences. She considers various relationships involved in creating representations; field trips, story telling, gathering or capturing of data, measuring, calibrating.
A video camera is a prosthetic device that allows its user to capture and collect moving images from his or her surroundings. The camera can also turn into an evil mirror reminding its user that the world will always be beyond her reach, that she can never connect with the world that she is observing through it, even if that is presicely the gesture offered by the camera. This tension sets in motion a gravitational field of inquiry that has resultetd in this exhibition.
The exhibition is supported by Stipendiatprogrammet for kunstnerisk utviklingsarbeid, Kunst -og Designhøgskolen i Bergen, Bergen Kommune and BEK.
