The KaviarFactory is an international venue for contemporary art. Located in Henningsvær, in the middle of the archipelago of Lofoten, Norway, it takes advantage of its off-the-grid location and aims to offer experiences and confrontations that never previously have been available to such regions.
The exhibition ‘Creation of a Moment’ regards a medium that is familiar to many – the photograph. The artists presented seem to challenge our understanding of what a photograph could be within the realm of contemporary art. The curated works provide a starting point to examine topics such as what constitutes art in photography? What are some of the content, theory, techniques and perspectives utilised by contemporary artists? How are the themes and subject relevant to us today? The collection comprises of thirty-one international and national artists that give us a look at this dynamic art form.
