grense_løs / bound_less

In this group exhibition we presented international contemporary art in collaboration with Riksutstillingene and the Stenersen Museum. Twelve innovative young artists toured the country.


Young artists build new alternative networks, and their background for artistic production and reflection is often more complex than for previous generations. These tendencies are known to us, their extent and quality are clearly represented in the manifestation of the 12 young artists or artist groups who take part in the Bound_Less exhibition. The internationally acknowledged curator Henry Meyric Hughes has made the selection of artists and art works, assisted by Øystein Ustvedt; former director of the Stenersen Museum. Bound_Less presents artists who deliberately chooses alternative networks to those maintained by national and more established institutions.

The participating artists are Øystein Aasan, Robert Alda, Jan Braar Christensen, Camilla Dahl, Danger Museum (Øyvind Renberg and Miho Shimizu), Guri Guri Henriksen, Samira Jamouchi, Farhad Kalantary, Tone-Lise Magnussen, Eline McGeorge, Samir M'kadmi, Maria Vagle and Hege Vadstein. Curated by the acknowledged British curator Henry Meyric Hughes in collaboration with Øystein Ustvedt. Read more about the artists here.
