VGKUNST2015 – International Performance Festival

We Invited the Performance Artists Claire Blundell Jones, John Court, Karianne Stensland, Katri Kainulainen & Maximilian Latva, Kurt Johannessen, Nigel Rolfe and Vincent Campos to make work in the landscape during the 11th and 12th of July 2015. They did both individual performances and group performances where they were joined by Pavana Reid and Bjørn Venø. At the end of each day Erik Friis Reitan hosted a panel discussion with the artists.

Anita Eide had prior to the festival done a lecture for children at Selje and Flatraket Barne Skule, on what is Performance Art? after which she asked them to paint and draw what they perceived it to be. The final results was exhibited during the festival.

During the festival one could take part in a spray painting workshop with Kaja Koppang or acrylic painting with Anita Eide. Catering for visitors was delivered by NOK mat.
