ABOUT THE PROJECT
Kulturøya is a long-term placemaking, open air exhibition and cultural project run by Leva Urban Design AS at Sølyst in Stavanger, Norway. Sølyst is a small island, where you can find expansive nature, several large industrial ship cranes, and a few human inhabitants. Kulturøya transforms the island through collaborative artistic action in the art program Find Your Eyes. Kulturøya is in the meantime possible to use by local, cultural organizations, through small events and happenings.
Art program: FIND YOUR EYES
Find Your Eyes is a year-long project at Sølyst curated by Monika Wuhrer and Ingeborg Kvame. Find Your Eyes will see, over the course of the year, a rotating group of, national and international, artists. Curating programming on Sølyst means embracing the elements. Taking inspiration from the nature and hidden treasures, such as the nature walks and newly planted garden on the island, Wuhrer and Ingeborg has curated a program of artists interested in collaborating with the island itself. Pieces will be scattered across the island, some discrete and some more conspicuous. While some work will be visible from boats or cars, other work will be discovered by curious hikers who listen and look carefully for interventions.
Find Your Eyes- Volume 4
Workshop by Anngjerd Rustand: Blåbær og aske
When : May 5, 2018, 13:00-15:00
Where : Greenhouse on S ø lyst, Stavanger
Who: Everyone above 8 years old. Children between 8 and 12 have to come with an adult. This is a FREE event.
As part of Find Your Eyes , a long-term placemaking, open air exhibition, Anngjerd Rustand will for its Volume 4 hold a workshop from 1-3pm. «Blåbær og aske» («Bilberry and Ash») is made by repeating one simple process: Juice extracted from bilberry (European blueberry) and wood ash soaked in water are mixed together and poured on to a sheet of wrapping tissue paper. The pigment that gives bilberries their distinct colour is Ph sensitive. By increasing the proportion of ash, which is a base, the colour changes from a bright red to shades of purple, blue, and green, until it degrades into an earth tone. After sharing her technique with the participants of the workshop there will be sufficient time to experiment. Please contact Ingeborg Kvame to sign up.
