Buskerud art center in Drammen, Norway, welcomes you to the opening of the exhibition “Wandering” by Marianne Broch on Wednesday the 25th of February at 19.00. Broch is working with a broad spectrum of materials, but always comes back to tree in different forms. At this exhibition Broch shows sculpture, installation, photography, video and collected materials. Opening: Art critic Gunhild Horgmo. There will also be sequences by the poet Terje Tørrisplass. Form and texture is essential. The tree itself is monumental and shapeable at the same time; rendering endless possibilities. Her work has clear references forestry and Norwegian cultural heritage; but at the same time Broch draws parallels to the human condition. The walking staff symbolizes all our life’s journey, the cracks and growth rings of the wood shows the hardships and the joys on the way, the fragile cellulose mass reflects the fragility inside us. The way the artist attempts to penetrate the material of the tree, she seeks to reveal the fragile human being behind the mask. To wander in the forest and the mountain to gather materials is an important part of the artistic process. The same goes for the physical work to process the wood. Broch seeks to transform experiences, natural phenomena and objects we know into something more. The goal with the expression meeting the public is to make them see things in a new way: The materials brings their meaning from the forests and culture, they are taken out of their natural place to express something unexpected.

It has been stated that I “choreograph the viewer’s movements and experience, diverting the focus points and resisting the notion of a full overview”. I invite people on a journey to enter the seven wall structure or to just ignore it. On that journey one will have to go out of one’s way from the path to enter the Labyrinth where it expresses it’s being both by form and name. Labyrinth is part of SKULPTUR, an RBS exhibition of contemporary sculpture from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Encompassing indoor and outdoor sculpture, video, installation, and performance....... www.gudrunnielsen.co.uk

Dick Onians' new piece “The Still Centre of the Turning World” commissioned for New Capital Quay, Greenwich Reach, descends from a line of sculptures that explore overlapping forms. The spherical shape is a reference to the globe. The form of the piece with its equator, longitudinal features and tilt allude to the work’s location near the Greenwich Mean and Greenwich’s historic role as a centre for navigation and worldwide trade. The title highlights the idea of mystery at the center of things and our ability to see our own reflection on the inside implicates us in the central mystery.

This large scale mirrored glass installation has just been given by Donna MacMillan to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their permanent collection. It consists of 100 large sealed bottles suspended down 3 floors in their main entrance to the collection. Each bottle contain a work/message by another artist who I invited to participate in the original project commissioned by Ha gamle prestegard for Stavanger 2008 - when it was European City of Culture. The work was originally installed in a 6 story lighthouse and recalls the classical story of Zeus and Danae, where in order to have her he turns himself into a shower of gold.
