Bergen Biennale 2010
—The Most Important Art Event This Decade—
The Bergen-based collective Ytter joins together with London-based collective Gandt to produce The Bergen Biennale 2010: The Most Important Art Event This Decade.
On Friday, 30 April 2010, Bergen sees the advent of a two-fold event beginning at Landmark - Norway’s unique venue for genre-breaking art - with a publication launch featuring Gandt (London/L.A.), Me & My Friends (Zurich/London), The Mock and Other Superstitions (London), Alphabet Prime (Stockholm) and Julie Lillelien Porter (Bergen). Performances by USF Verftet Artist in Residence Jenny Moore Koslowsky (London/ Winnipeg), performer/writer/artist Patrick Coyle (London), alongside a performative video installation by Jason Underhill (Los Angeles). A durational performance entitled WORK by Sophie Risner (London) will take place throughout the evening. Landmark’s very own Culture Club is a proud sponsor of the first Bergen Biennale, providing food, drink, and a critically engaged atmosphere for debate and discussion.
The second part of the much anticipated Bergen Biennale 2010 will take place at Entrée, Bergen’s newest and freshest artist-run gallery including performances by Agnes Nedregaard (Bergen/Glasgow), Midskills (Tromsø), a continuation of Patrick Coyle’s “100 Red Exercise Books,” carrying into the night with a concert by the Boogey Boys (Bergen/ Etc.), and DJ set by studio collective Flaggfabrikken’s current Artist in Residence Santiago Mostyn (New York).
Ytter is an artist group based in Bergen with the members Anne Marthe Dyvi (b.1979), Julie Lillelien Porter (b.1975) and Anngjerd Rustand (1982). Former member Vilde Andrea Brun (b.1979) was also part of Ytter during the collaboration with Entrée.
