Welcome to the exhibition 'LØSØRE' with Hans Kristian Borchgrevink Hansen.
Hansen works with drawing, objects, animation, and artist books. In his projects, he often explores his immediate surroundings. He proceeds cautiously, takes the motifs seriously, and endeavors to give them the attention they deserve.
In his solo exhibition 'LØSØRE' at the Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art from November 16th to December 17th, Hansen will present the film “Småfuglen letter” (2019) (The Little Bird Takes Flight) in a large format, along with around 80 small sculptures and objects.
The film is based on the artist's stay at the small farm and artist residence Ringsveen, where Hansen and the artist Ellen Henriette Suhrke spent a year from 2016 to 2017. Ringsveen became known to the public when Anne and Jakob Weidemann settled there in 1967, and therefore, the small farm outside Lillehammer holds a special place in Norwegian art history. Jakob Weidemann painted several of his most famous pictures at Ringsveen.
At the same time, in his film, Hansen portrays Ringsveen as any ordinary home. Jakob and Anne become protagonists in the film on an equal footing with other participants, such as the squirrel, the bread dough, the afternoon sun, the farmyard tree, and the online banking token. The film blends animation and video, present and history, into a fluid video mass of observations and passing seasons.
Weidemann found his motifs among wildflowers in the courtyard. Similarly, Hans Kristian Borchgrevink Hansen has explored the same local environment and discovered his own motif. Dust particles, a carved wooden horse, or a ketchup bottle are carefully brought to life by Hansen through meticulous care for the objects and environments depicted.
The music for the film “Småfuglen letter” (The Little Bird Takes Flight) is composed by Øystein Wyller Odden, and author and art critic Bjørn Hatterud has written a text for the exhibition.
