Join us for Open Forum and a performative lecture by artist and gallerist Anja Carr and art history student Vilde Horvei. Anja Carr (b.1985) has been running the non-profit art space PINK CUBE in Oslo since January 2011, with a pink wall-paint containing body fluids. Every exhibition in PINK CUBE is an art-battle between two artists or artist-groups, based on an interest for various intimate spaces in her own works and fruitful battles in previous artistic collaborations. The intention being new prolific dialogues between the artists, intimate pink space and the audience.
Carrs installations encompass sculptures, live-and video-performance. The live-performances in these homelike and colorful fairytale-scenographies are also presented as an ongoing photography series. Through her non-verbal performances Carr explores a physical dream language and involves musicians, bodybuilders or furries – people in fur-suits worshiping their animal-personality. Her childhood desires and figures like My Little Pony and Miss Piggy are transformed in the ambiguous and symbolic world of dreams, lusts and nightmares – through bodily materials or sensual communication with the audience.
