@Khartoum Contemporary Art Center.
Free soup and student prices from 18.00.
Artist talk at 19:00.
Marthe Ramm Fortun (Oslo, 1978) lives and works in Oslo and Paris. She is a current resident at Cité Internationale des Arts, and teaches at the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts. Since completing her studies at the New York University (2008), Fortun has shown work in a variety of contexts and institutions throughout Norway and abroad, including the Munch Museum, Stavanger Kunstmuseum, KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Monnaie de Paris, BOZAR Brussels, Performa 13, PS1 MoMA, and Gladstone Gallery in Brussels.
Fortun’s body of work encompasses performance, site-specific texts and assemblage where body, language and elusive sculptural boundaries inscribe closed off institutional spaces with persistent and poetic feminisms. Upcoming work includes a public art commission for the Bergen Museum of Natural History curated by Marit Paasche, and a solo exhibition at Kunstnerforbundet, Oslo.
