Nina Malterud Rom8

Nina Malterud to exhibit new work in Rom8

The exhibition will feature a series of ceramic dishes based on the dish as an open form, related to function and action, but also as an image. Exhibition period: 17-28 april 2013. Exhibition opening 17 April 6-8pm.

Nina Malterud's artistic reserach has focused on the possibilities offered by glazes in relation to the form, and on the surprising results repeated glazing and firing can lead to, creating an expression with a physical presence but no narrative - white, grey, fog, steam, air and water - within the bounds of a square, circle, rectangle and oval.

The pieces were made during the period 2011 to 2013, and a selection of them were exhibited at Kunstnerforbundet in Oslo in autumn 2012. The museums of decorative arts and design in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim all purchased works from that exhibition.

Work by Nina Malterud will also be on show in Format in Bergen from 19 April to 9 June in parallel with the exhibition in Rom8.

Nina Malterud is Professor. She now works as an artist in Bergen, and as adviser to Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

The space is used to develop and communicate processes and experiments with a particular focus on dialogue and critical reflection. The intention of Rom8 is to actively lift out processes of artistic research and allow sharing of knowledge both internally and externally.
