Tora Endestad Bjørkheim
Bjørn-Henrik Lybeck

Curated by Espen Johansen

In front: Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man by Bjørn-Henrik Lybeck.
In back: Handwoven Canvas in Frame on Wheels by Tora Endestad Bjørkheim.

The wind is from west, and rain weaves works from water. Sheets of beaded moisture drift through air. In an atelier below the bridge hang beaded ribbons. A bridge of black pearls -
now a subject of labour
now a door of beads
a port of pearls: a point in which spaces meet.

Behind beads, backroom smells homely. Tora drinks black coffee.
The acid works on teeth, skin, copper; etching surfaces,
and writing the journey of the black, bitter bean.

Bjørn-Henrik knows little about Tora’s work. Tora barely knows the work of Bjørn-Henrik. Their works work together.

Tora says Work generates work. Labour is artwork. It takes no shortcuts.

Bjørn-Henrik says Your questions work on my mind. My replies may be sketchy and not worked through. Please feel free to use my answers, and rework it to fit into your work.

Bjørn-Henrik says But talk reduces work. Hence, dreams come at play.

He has a recurring dream.
He has a recurring image on his mind;
a photograph returns to him/
he returns to the photo: Self-Portrait as a Drowned man
is an image simultaneously bitter-sweet and dreamlike, says
Bjørn-Henrik, and asks himself Are dreams the opposite of talk?
