CoSA - Concerning the spiritual in art, by lOCUS and LATERNA
LOCUS (Thale Fastvold and Tanja Thorjussen) is collaborating with LATERNA (Marianne Skjeldal and Inger-Reidun Olsen) on the project "CoSA - Concerning The Spiritual in Art" which travels to Athens in Greece during Documenta 14 in April, to Hammerfest in north of Norway in June and November, and to St.Petersburg in October of 2017.
The project is a research based art project expressed through performance, photography, drawing and artist books as well as a publication about the project and the spiritual in art both historically and contemporary.
Invited artists who will create artists books to be launched in 2017:
Merete Joulsen Aune, Stefano Cagol, Thale Fastvold, Margrethe Pettersen, Daniel Slåttnes & Sara Rönnbäck (duo) and Tanja Thorjussen.
I am making a small edition of artists books consisting of 7 lithographs.
We thank The Norwegian Institute at Athens, Kulturrådet and Fond for lyd og bilde for the generous funding of this project!
