2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

Producing one unified work, by group of artist is uncommon in the art field but in the case of Norwegian group of ceramists it becoame a joy of creativity resulting in realization of large art installation. Prodused by 6 female artist all graduated from Bergen National Academy of the Arts each adding her share into one body of work. It is a good example of collective art making prosess in creation of modular sculpture, composed from 4000 clay flowers, the work can be presented in many site-specific locations, looking different in each setting. The subject of nature`s diversity was a perfect choice in stitching individual expressions into one collective artwork which became a product of intense collaboration. A selection of colorful flowers assambled on the gallery floor, forming sea of animated nature. Statement by Marek Cecula Professor The National Academy of the Arts, in Bergen, Norway

Venue & Connection Information

Flora Metamorphicae is an everchanging project and for this venue we would like to present all our "collection" (aprox. 3000 objects) in all its grandour. The most important requirement is a good and spacious exhibition room. The installation will be self supported and placed on the floor.We always concider the architectual, natural or cultural environment of each installation. This means that the shape it takes will have to be decided if we gwt a venue. For measure the installation will cover about 25-30 m2 floor space, and there has to be ample space for the public to walk around it. Apart from the space, proffesional lighting, (gallery spotlights) are essential. Most likely we will also need som handy assistance, for unpacking and essambling the installation.

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: Yes
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
  • Outdoor Space needed: No
  • Audio/Video needed: No
