Moss by Moss

Eyes as Big as Plates met Inger and Karin in a nature reserve while scouring the woods and shores of Jeløya, a small island just off the city of Moss, about an hour south of Oslo, Norway. Both of these wild and strong women collaborated with us to produce two new works that will be part of next year’s Tendenser exhibition at F15 Gallery on this same island.

In the words of the curator Randi Grov Berger: “The exhibition “Earth, Wind, Fire, Water” will present new works by Nordic artists who use contemporary craft in different ways to address our longing for a deeper connection to the earth, with practices linking to materiality, anthropology, geology and cosmology.”

The films are on their way to be developed and we have set up a dehydrator for our moss and sea kale sculptures that will possibly enter the galleries come March 2020. Stayed tuned for the next episode of Eyes as Big as Plates on the road, when we are heading towards Finnskogen!
