Utstilling på BLOKK – 01-03. august 2014.
Åpning: 01. august kl 20:00.

Utstillingstittelen er et sitat fra Alan Lightmans essay “Prisoners of the Wired World” hvor han reflekterer over hvorfor han ikke lenger sløser med tid. Utstillingen er det første samarbeidet mellom Cornelia Glitsch og Hans Christian van Nijkerk. De oppdaget at enkelte av deres arbeider lå innenfor samme grunntone, estetisk og tematisk. Begge kunstnerne er opptatt av oppmerksomhet og evnen til å finne og dvele ved noe. De liker å ha en nysgjerrig og lyttende tilnærming og ser verdien i å øve seg i tålmodighet og følsomhet. Derfor tiltrekkes de gjerne av situasjoner, ting og steder der det tilsynelatende skjer lite, men der noe allikevel griper dem.

Lydsporet, komponert og spilt inn av Hans Christian, er inspirert av ambient musikksjangeren (jf. Brian Eno, Boards of Canada m.m.). Ambient musikk vektlegger tone og atmosfære fremfor tradisjonell oppbygning eller rytme og er “ment til å gi ro og et rom å tenke i.” (fra heftet til Brian Enos Ambient 1: Music For Airports.)

Cornelia Glitsch (f. 1976) har bachelor fra KHIB og har de siste årene levd av sesongarbeid som kirkegårdsgartner og brukt vintrene til egenstudier og kunstprosess med interesse for blant annet langsomhet. Foto er et av hennes nærmeste uttrykk; det har vært med lenge og er det hun bruker mest kontinuerlig. Andre uttrykk hun har jobbet med er performance, sang, lyd og stedsspesifikke verk.

Hans Christian van Nijkerk (f. 1982) er en norsk/nederlandsk billedkunstner, performer og musiker bosatt i Bergen. Han tok sin bachelor i samtidskunst i Tromsø. Hans Christians primære uttrykk er performance, såvel live som videobasert. Videre jobber han med musikk, lyd, foto, tekst og installasjon. I arbeidene sine utforsker Hans Christian – gjerne med humor – tematikk som publikum, kommunikasjonsteknologi, grådighet, begjær, minner, forgjengelighet og død. Hans siste til dels autobiografiske hovedprosjekt omhandler konkurranse og friidrett.

Han har opptrådd på og stilt ut i bl.a. Silverlens Gallery (Singapore), NNKS (Svolvær), Small Projects (Tromsø), NM i poesislam (Oslo) og Dansens Hus (Oslo).

Utstillingen er støttet av BEK.

New prize for internet art: Prix Net Art

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 15:05

Beginning this autumn, Rhizome and Beijing-based TASML and CAT/CCIA will award a substantial new prize for internet art.

The “no strings attached” prize, which will be awarded three times in total in 2014, 2015, and 2016, will recognize the past work and future promise of one artist making outstanding work on the internet. The awardee will receive $10,000; a second distinction award of $5,000 will also be made each year.

To us, the prize feels timely. It celebrates the current moment of internet art and looks ahead to its future. As many artists have won international acclaim for work that tackles technology as subject matter through media forms of long standing—sculpture, installation, and painting—internet art remains less recognized, less supported. This prize gives a boost to those who continue to make art on the internet, and emphasizes the unique cultural importance of such work.

We’re thrilled to work with our partners to acknowledge significant internet artists who continue to be committed to working online, who have inspired us in the past, and whose best work still lies ahead.

Deadline for nominations: August 31, 2014. Please see full information about the prize on

Do Chimpanzees Like Music?

Do Chimpanzees Like Music? It’s a question that recently popped up again after the publication of a study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Learning and Cognition, co-authored by primatologist Frans de Waal. However, researchers disagree on primates' sensitivity to music.

Wat apen in muziek horen blijft de vraag [Dutch]

De wetenschap steggelt over de vraag of chimpansees van muziek houden. De vraag is van belang omdat het ontstaan en het nut van muziek en muzikaliteit nog altijd een raadsel zijn.
