In the summer of 2013 Stavanger Kunstforening will become Kunsthall Stavanger. During winter and spring we will exhibit three exhibitions as a continuation of Stavanger Kunstforening’s program. These include the group show Heterotopic Views, the touring show Vestlandsutstillingen, and Rogaland Art School’s graduation show.

Our first exhibition in 2013 is a collaboration between the artists Karlotta Blöndal, Johan Gaellman, Ragnhildur Jóhanns, and Ingeborg Kvame, who met at the island Nådøy outside Stavanger in the Spring of 2012:

Five artists – five strangers – spent two weeks on a desert island. It was a space of otherness, a heterotopia, in which they produced art. The setting gave them the sensation of being part of a reality show or a horror movie, while they slowly got bonded together.

As they parted and returned to reality – their everyday life – they had an exhibition in mind.

One artist got lost on their way, but he will lurk in the scenery of this exhibition that is their heterotopia.
