The Faculty of Art, Music and Design at the University of Bergen presents new work by art students who deal with textile materials and techniques in a variety of ways. “Berøringspunkter” - Points of contact “creates spaces in which different ideas and perspectives meet, in which one touches and is touched.
The textile studies in Bergen offer a diverse and vital environment for students and teachers who jointly examine a wide range of topics within artistic practice. The exhibited works by Bachelor and Master students show a variety of forms of expression; analog and digital, conceptual or artisanal. They are created in various techniques such as printing, dyeing, weaving, knitting, sewing, photography or new media and self-developed methods. The works represent thoughts and reflections on topics such as communication, identity, sustainability and nature. “Berøringspunkter” follows a long tradition of collaboration and marks a new chapter. The exhibition was curated by Professor Tim Parry-Williams, Associate Professor Tone Saastad and the artist and youngest graduate Daniela Bergschneider.
Venue: Galerie Salhus, Museum for Textile Industry, MUHO / Museum Center in Hordaland.
