SEE AND BE SEEN
I am. You are. He, she and it is. We are. You are. They are.
Let us make this visible in making art together. All visitors are welcome to take part in the creative process. Add your work to the great installation. Norwegian artist Alfred Vaagsvold will guide you to the art! Welcome!
What happens when the artist lets the visitors take over and the process of creativity is not only the artist’s work? In the post-modern art, many artists invite people to cooperate in the artwork. That means the final result is unpredictable. We have to respect the result of what the participants choose of colors, form and design. I choose the materials: paper, ink, tread and tape. As artist I don’t know the way the installation will take form. I am just leading the creative process. When does the art start? When does it end?

This exhibition is the result of the collaboration between the artist Alfred Vaagsvold and the participants. It is also an exhibition that grows because of people’s participation, especially those who are physically special, giving the entire exhibition a unadorned and natural energy, in the lines unconsciously outlined, in the paper balls nailed to the wall, and in the wire hanging in the air. These simple objects and traces together constitute a loose daily nature that has not been disciplined and continues to grow.
