Bergen filmklubb x Entrée Cinema have the pleasure of premiering +47 911 41937 (2019-2021), a new film by Lasse Årikstad. In addition we will be presenting one of Årikstad’s previous films, For all tid (2019) and invite you to a Q & A with the artist in conversation with curator Tatiana Lozano.
Lasse Årikstad, Lives and works in Kristiansand, Norway and graduated with an MA in Fine arts at The Art Academy in Bergen in 2014. He works with painting, sculpture, ﬁlm, collage, drawing and installation.
+47 911 41937 is the visual artist Lasse Årikstad´s second shortﬁlm, filmed over the duration of 3 years on the artist's own iPhone SE between 2019-2021.The ﬁlm has no real narrative structure or meaning, it can be seen as a fragmented mosaic of everyday scenes of life. The strange, the boring, the beautiful, the mundane, the spectacular and the unspectacular are being poetically observed and documented. The ﬁlm is about the immediate surroundings of the artist's life and can be seen as an abstract self portrait of sorts (although, not a single selﬁe was made during the making of this ﬁlm).
In For all tid we meet August, a 23 year old student on a holiday to his hometown on a break from nursing studies in Copenhagen to be with his family. When the restlessness kicks in after a while, he wanders around downtown waiting for something to happen. Out of nothing he gets a call from an old friend who invites him on a boat trip around the nearby archipelago. The ﬁlm is about friendship, the feeling of being an outsider in a place very familiar mixed with lazy summer days, free of responsibilities swimming in seawater and hedonism.
Screening in "Tivoli" at Det Akademiske Kvarter, Olav Kyrres Gate 49.
