Risk – and associated topics such as vulnerability, unguardedness, precariousness, failure and uncanniness – are frequently raised as concerns within artistic research arenas. VIS # 1 – Risk in Artistic Research – jeopardy or validation?
The goal of this exposition is to investigate the particular qualities of painting and mountain climbing. Do they have their own aesthetics, their own processes and patterns of movement, their own environmental structures and psychology – and do they share some of these characteristics?
THE RISK OF BREAKING
My sculptural installations 'risk' 2011 and 'Celebration' 2015 were developed after I broke several bones mountain biking and wasn’t able to work in my studio for a year. When I returned to making sculpture I found I could only relate to previous artwork by breaking it.
At our concerts we want to be firestarters for chaos, the unexpected, and fierce moshpits. We attempt to establish directionless energy with no particular purpose other than to fuck shit up in an everyday existence that we often feel to be dull, passive and predictable.

The exposition “Melliferopolis – collaborating with uncontrollable, flying, stinging insects” explores encounters between humans and insects, in the framework of a long term project around honeybees in urban contexts called Melliferopolis.
(NOT SO) CASUAL CONVERSATIONS
The exposition “(Not so) Casual Conversations: Experiments in Attunement as Method in Investigative Art Practice” considers how investigative poetic practices could broaden notions of ‘forensis’ in terms of contemporary art.
A FEW NOTES ON GETTING LOST (ONCE AGAIN)
This essay is about risk in artistic research. It is about obstacles and turning points; a shift away from the familiar and move towards an unfamiliar terrain. It begins on a boat, heading to the North of Norway, in the darkness.
DISCOVERY AND NAMING
There is a fundamental enthusiasm and curiosity that drives our attitude towards experimentation. Free basic research is the fundament for all new apprehensions. Each production leads us into new landscapes. Experimentation is artistic immersion.
THE LOST AND FOUND PROJECT: IMAGINEERING FRAGMEDIALITIES
The Lost and Found project began as an attempt to challenge my own sound making in opposition to a linear, capitalist, narrative tradition, dominated by visual culture.
