June 17th - June 26th, 2015 / Harstad, Norway

The title conjures up visions of endless expanse, and sheds light upon art´s symbolic capacity for revealing civilization´s ebb and flow. The festival exhibition 2015 contains work by art collective AES+F from Russia, Martin Gustavsson from Sweden plus Trygve Luktvasslimo and Kjell Varvin from Norway. The exhibition´s curator is Joakim Borda who has also been responsible for "Pioneer Voices" in 2013 and "Paradise Reclaimed" in 2014.


Joakim Borda promises several premieres during this year´s festival exhibition. Kjell Varvin presents a completely new installation at the Arts Festival of North Norway. It is exciting that Nordland artist Trygve Luktvasslimo has received support from the Norwegian Arts Council for a new work to be presented in the same exhibition. Sweden´s Martin Gustavsson for his part, takes up the opportunity of exploring the architecture of Galleri Nord Norge through his abstract and figurative paintings. The exhibition is also a Norwegian premiere for the russian arts group AES+F.


The exhibition is supported with funds from the Norwegian Arts Council.
