Prøverommet is excited to be at Kunsthall 3,14 in Eve Ariza´s installation Murmuri. In this context we invite you to a yoga session held by Ida Selin Lillebostad. Ida is a trainee at Yogarommet where she explores and looks for connections, both in the language and in the body. The idea is to find the atmosphere in the room and use it as a way to expand how we experience artworks.
The evening ends with a reading by poet Tora Sanden Døskeland, who’ll share an excerpt from her critically acclaimed book; Behold meg (Keep me) (2018). The book portrays our longing to stay with someone, and our failure to do so. Tora is interested in how language operates in our personal relationships with each other. Behold meg is her first book.
The exhibition is open throughout the event
About the exhibition:
Channeling the tradition of clay art, Andorran artist Eve Ariza works on the multiplication of the bowl as a container of truth and placidity. The ceramic bowl appears as the first form modeled by man with an intention. She purposedly tears its base to reveal a mouth-like shape, thus transforming its essence and leaving aside its conventional use. The enormous time consuming process of the practice of the clay becomes here an act of soothing rebellion. Listening and abandoning oneself to the material as it dictates, in a way, the artist’s living rythm.
The project carries on the artist’s battle against the « bla », the concept of overconsumption and overfeeding on images and sounds as the tangibly sole foundation of today’s society. The installation becomes a sensory experience as each bowl reveals its own natural resonance. Liberated from the burden of any explicit narrative content, the work first provokes an intense physical dialogue with the viewer. The modeled lines forming around the gaped mouths uniquevokely resemble the ripples formed by sound waves. The murmurs emanating recall that first purely poetic vibration that originated all human communication.
