Åpningsdag

Kunstnersamtale med inviterte gjester
Søndag 28. november, fra 12-14



Begrepene binda og sigla, er to av mange felles ord mellom norsk og islandsk. De har både konkrete og abstrakte betydninger knyttet til vår eksistens som sådan, til havet som binder oss sammen, til kunstnerisk praksis med tradisjoner og innovasjoner og til de historiske båndene og dokumentene mellom nasjoner.

Norge og Island har felles kulturelle røtter, gjennom norrøn bosetting, språk, fortellertradisjoner og ikke minst bokhistorie, men også gjennom sjøfart, fiske og andre forutsetninger naturen gir. De ikoniske fortellingene om Norge ble nedskrevet på Island og er av uvurderlig verdi for vår selvfølelse som kultur og nasjon.

Tekstbildet og dets fysiske bærere; steintavlen, papyrusrullen og boken, har siden historiens morgen hatt en magisk tiltrekning på oss. De er objekter som kan ha makt over oss, som kan forbinde oss til fortidens mennesker, til det guddommelige og til loven.

Å utforske bokformatets potensiale for å tjene kunstneriske uttrykk er utgangspunktet for de to kunstnergruppene fra Norge og Island. SIGLA BINDA viser frem 10 nye kunstnerbøker i Entrées nye interiørstruktur for det kommende året, designet av kunstner Magnhild Øen Nordahl.

Codex Polaris er en kunstnerbokgruppe basert i Bergen, Norge. Deres formål er å skape muligheter og utstillingsplattformer for kunstnere som jobber med bøker i Norden. I tillegg til utstillingsaktivitet, inviterer Codex Polaris gjestekuratorer og arrangører til å jobbe med ulike nettverksprosjekter. Prosjektene og tekstene setter søkelys på kunstnerboka i spennet mellom det lokale og det internasjonale perspektivet. Codex Polaris drives av Rita Marhaug, Imi Maufe og Randi Annie Strand.

Arkir (quires) er en kunstnerbokgruppe med base i Reykjavik, Island. Medlemmer av gruppen har jobbet og studert bokkunst sammen siden 1998. Arkir hadde sin første separatutstilling i 2005 og har siden den gang hatt flere utstillinger både på Island og internasjonalt. De er interessert i å dele tanker om bokkunst med andre kunstnere over hele verden. Arkir består av Anna Snædís Sigmarsdóttir, Arnþrúður Ösp Karlsdóttir, Áslaug Jónsdóttir, Bryndís Bragadóttir, Helga Pálína Brynjólfsdóttir, Ingiríður Óðinsdóttir, Kristín Guðbrandsdóttir, Kristín Þóra Guðbjartsdóttir, Jóhanna Margrét Tryggvadóttir, Sigurborg Stefánsdóttir og Svanborg Matthíasdóttir.

Det er også en publikasjon med ytterligere presentasjoner av hver enkelt kunstner som følger utstillingen.

Søndag ønsker vi i tillegg velkommen til en kunstnersamtale med kunstnerne og inviterte gjester.

Utstillingen er støttet av Norsk Kulturråd og Skjal Translation.

SIGLA BINDA vil reise videre til galleriet Íslensk Grafík i Reykjavik hvor den åpner i juni 2022.

SIGLA BINDA
an exhibition with unique artists’ books 

The terms sigla (sailing) and binda (binding) are two of many common words between the Norwegian and Icelandic languages. They both have several concrete and abstract meanings related to our very existence, to the sea that connects us, to artistic practice with traditions and innovations, and to the historical ties and documents between nations.

Norway and Iceland have common cultural roots, through the Norwegian settlement in Iceland, through language, storytelling traditions and not least through their connected book history. The iconic stories about Norway, written down in Iceland, are priceless and a central part in defining our modern states and self-understanding as cultures, even today.

The text-image combination and its physical carriers; the stone tablet, the papyrus scroll and the codex format, have had a magical attraction since the dawn of history. They can be overpowering objects that link us to the people of the past, to the divine and to the law.

To explore the potential of the book format to serve artistic expressions are at the core for the two artists groups from Norway and Iceland. SIGLA BINDA showcases 10 new artists’ books inside Entrée’s new interior structure for the coming year, designed by artist Magnhild Øen Nordahl.

Codex Polaris is an artists’ book group based in Bergen, Norway. Their purpose is to create opportunities and exhibition platforms for artists who work with books in the Nordic countries. In addition to exhibition activity, Codex Polaris invites guest curators and organizers to work on various networking projects. The projects and texts focus on the artists’ book in the span between the local and the international perspective. Codex Polaris is run by Rita Marhaug, Imi Maufe and Randi Annie Strand.

Arkir (quires) is an artists’ book group based in Reykjavik, Iceland. Members of the group have been working and studying book art together since 1998. Arkir had their first solo exhibition in 2005 and have since then had several exhibitions both in Iceland and abroad. They are interested to share views on book art with fellow artists around the world. The members are Anna Snædís Sigmarsdóttir, Arnþrúður Ösp Karlsdóttir, Áslaug Jónsdóttir, Bryndís Bragadóttir, Helga Pálína Brynjólfsdóttir, Ingiríður Óðinsdóttir, Kristín Guðbrandsdóttir, Kristín Þóra Guðbjartsdóttir, Jóhanna Margrét Tryggvadóttir, Sigurborg Stefánsdóttir and Svanborg Matthíasdóttir.

There is also a publication with further presentations of each artist that follows the exhibition, and we welcome you on Sunday for a roundtable conversation with the artists and invited guests.  

The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway and Skjal Translation. 

SIGLA BINDA will travel to Íslensk Grafík gallery in Reykjavik where it opens in June 2022.
