DALVEDH: A ONE NIGHT EVENT
8. May 2015, 19:00hrs
Join us this Friday (8 May) the very exciting, one night only, opportunity to engage visual artist Sissel Bergh's practice-based research exhibition, 'Dalvedh'; an ongoing project, which performs a questioning of the role of 'history' as a tool for assimilating multiple voices into a single, 'legitimate' account of the past.
The installation comprises a three video-channel, and six audio-channel installation, in collaboration with music composer Frode Fjellheim.
NOT TO BE MISSED!
Why do we believe what we believe, and know what we know about history, land and identity?
Dalvedh is an artproject by Sissel M Bergh - in cooperation with composer Frode Fjellheim.
(Dalvedh : a Southsaami verb which means to reappear after being long gone.)
Dalvedh is stretching into society by reestablishing the Saami, as with relevance for identity, history and cultural heritage in the middle and southern part of Scandinavia. Dalvedh is conneting traditional and academic knowledge with art. It brings forward silenced sources, knowledge which has remained local. Knowledge which has been knowingly erased. Dalvedh is located in the borderland between art and research, the documentary and the poetic, and enter reflection space through the senses.
Sissel M Bergh is educated from the National academy of art in Oslo and University of Technology i Durban, SA. Her work are conceptual og sensual installations which include objects, sound, video and a diversion of materials and technics.
Frode Fjellheim is a musician, a composer, music producer and our first professor in yoik.
