Det er det det er / It is what it is
NINA BANG LARSEN (NO)
Preview DEC 19. 2014 / 6-9pm
In the exhibition «It is what it is» Nina Bang Larsen plays with familiar secondhand objects. Somewhere in the meeting between the found objects and her own ideas, surreal stories emerge. Bang Larsen lets coincidence and intuition lead the way, the chosen materials help to find the path and the collaboration is confused and comical. They are easily distracted, lose their direction, and never reach a conclusion.
Nina Bang Larsen (born 1981), Hardanger, lives and works in Bergen. She received an MA from Bergen Academy of Arts and Design in 2010. After her solo exhibition “Inside/Outside” in Soft Gallery in 2012, Bang Larsens work has been exhibited in numerous art galleries across Norway, for instance Kurant, Prosjektrommet Carl Berner and Hedmark Kunstsenter. Larsen was also selected to participate in Sculpture by the Sea 2011 (Århus, Denmark). She recently opened her solo exhibition, “Bite my shiny metal ass”, at Nord-Trøndelag Art Museum, and is now working on her next solo exhibition at Vestfold Art Center (opening May 2015).
