Seminar with presentations, a conversation and a book launch. The seminar is followed by a dinner.
The seminar at Christinegaard Hovedgaard in Bergen is held in connection with the third and final part of the exhibition of Liv Bugge's work Goliat, Draugen og Maria which is shown outdoors at the pavilion Mon Plaisir by Mulen, 28–31 March. The work is concurrently on display as part of the exhibition Experiences of Oil at Stavanger Art Museum.
The work consists of a film, an app and three sculptures that will be on display together for the first time. The sculptures are models of the seabed in the oil fields Goliat, Draugen and Maria in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea.
As part of the seminar, there will be a launch of Liv Bugge's book Structural Magic. The artworks, conversations and thoughts presented in the book spring from Bugge's PhD The Other Wild, touching art as confrontation, at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
The contributors in the book are Natasha Marie Llorens, Denise Ferreira Da Silva, Elke Marhöfer, Liv Bugge, Susanne M. Winterling and Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Haagi Abdim, Benjamin Larsen Lipski, Monster Network (Sara Orning and Ingvil Hellstrand), Jon Lønnve, Hans Petter Graver, Gyrid Gunnes, Solveig Styve Holte, Noemi Fernandez Dahms and Ingvil Hellstrand. The book is distributed by Torpedo Press and is published with the support of the Arts Council Norway and Norwegian Visual Artists Fund.
