Welcome to opening of Kunsthall Trondheim’s summer exhibition mind moves with matter, body blends into space with Thora Dolven Balke (Norway), Ann Iren Buan (Norway), Brit Dyrnes (Norway), Tibor Hajas (Hungary), Éva Mag (Romania/Sweden) and Francesca Woodman (USA).
Kristin Ørmen Johnsen, the chair of The Standing Committee on Family and Cultural Affairs in Parliament of Norway, will open the exhibition.
The exhibition mind moves with matter, body blends into space evolves around the body’s relation to space and materiality. Experiences of the body’s relation to the room – also in the extended meaning of the material world – the physical body as materiality and weight, but also as an immanent strive towards movement is a reoccurring thought in the presentation. The idea of the mind as thinking matter refers to the 17th century philosopher Margaret Cavendish, who will be the subject of a conference in Trondheim, held by the Margaret Cavendish society in June.
