Trilogy, Inger Lise Hansen DVD
Inger Lise Hansen is a visual artist with background in experimental film and animation who for the last two decades has produced a distinctive and acclaimed body of moving image work. This publication presents her recent film trilogy, Proximity (2006), Parallax (2009) and Travelling Fields (2009); a series of spatial deconstructions using disorientating perspective and animation to foreground landscape and architectural elements across a series of diverse locations, from a shopping centre in Linz to the deserted landscapes of north-western Russia. The films are accompanied by specially commissioned texts by Nicole Hewitt, Stefan Grissemann and Trude Schjelderup Iversen.

“Hansen’s films are fundamentally simulations; feigning naturalness, continuity and movement, (...): In them, the sky becomes sea, a low point, a base. They quite literally portray a world on the brink, a realm of condensed time and strained space.” Stefan Grissemann

moving - Ålesund February 2013

"Moving" was a public outdoor projection event in urban space produced by the artist collective Aggregat in Ålesund between 7 - 10 February. Ten artists showed video works projected onto walls, facades and large windows in a series of locations stretching between the city hall and the old wooden buildings by the harbour. On Friday 8th. February at 8.00 pm an audience of over 100 people met outside the city hall to join a two-hour procession through the city, visiting each of the projected video works. The procession was led by the "art ambulance", created and driven by Bent Erik Myrvoll, and each work was introduced by tour guide and artist Trine Røssevold,  clearly visible to all in a white suit adorned with small light bulbs. The intention of the guided tour was both to present the artworks, and to give Ålesund residents a different experience of their own city environment, possibly even introducing them to urban spaces they had not noticed or had simply overlooked. In freezing temperatures the tour was certainly a challenge, but the audience were extremely engaged and remained involved to the very end. This was an engaging and very enjoyable way to have an alternative experience of a city and to see some interesting video works at the same time. The following day an afternoon seminar was held at the Ålesund Jugendstil Senter with lectures by Jeremy Welsh and Benedikte Holen. Pictures below in non-chronolgical order!
