UNFOLDING SPACE THROUGH SOUND ART
In 2012 ARTnord organized a touring exhibition, accompanied by a special issue. The aim of the project was to discover an active, committed and unusual sound art scene from the extreme North Atlantic fringes. Whether they amplify the perception of a place, render a new type of silence or speak in unheard voices from the living realm, the works gathered for this exhibition helped rediscover space through the experience of sound. Close or distant, personal or political, human or animal, a gripping phenomenon is arising. An invitation to discover unexpected signals from the Arctic horizon.
In October 2010, ARTnord organized an event at the Palais de Tokyo bookshop. Three Norwegian artists, presented in the no. 10 issue, were invited: the photographer Rune Guneriussen, who signed a limited edition of one of his photographies. Kurt Johannessen, who made the photography on the cover of the magazine, did a site-specific performance. Terje Isungset, a well known composer and musician, gave a concert with instruments made of natural materials such as stone, wood and horn.
