Kunsthall Trondheim are proud to present the solo exhibition Notes From Underground" with Lisa Tan, an American artist now living in Stockholm.
The exhibition is presented in the lower galleries at Kunsthall Trondheim and contains a series of three films, each with a female writer at the centre, and two installation works, "Moving a Mountain" (2008) and "National Geographic" (2009), which precedes the films. Together they form a line of thinking and express the artist’s interest in liminality, in-between-ness.
While many subjects are touched upon in the films – violence, displacement, societal issues –the question that stays with you is maybe in the end that of artistic practice. What is this – to write, to make art? What kind of language could art speak? Lispector talks about the cruelty of man and declares that the artwork doesn’t alter anything. The films are in a way evolving in search of a possible practice. They stretch out over and beyond the globe, only to return to the artist´s working place – the desk, the computer screens, the everyday.
Lisa Tan (b. 1973, Syracuse, NY, USA) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Tan works mostly in video, photography and installation, and she engages various literary, historical and personal references to explore the intricate relationship between language, image, and experience. Lisa Tan completed a practice-based PhD at the University of Gothenburg, Valand Academy, Sweden. Thanks to Galleri Riis, Oslo.
