Undersang / Jaskes sukna | ELINA WAAGE MIKALSEN

Thursday 1 -  Monday 5 September

Elina Waage Mikalsen is an artist from Tromsø with both Norwegian and Sami  background. She works with text, textile, performance and  installation. And almost every time based on sound and sound  performance. In her sound project she often mixes field  recordings, her voice, electronics and her self made instruments.  This to create a sonic space that exists somewhere between  reality and fantasy. Her background as Norwegian and Sami is a  recurrent theme in her artistic practice. Undersang combines  fragments of her family’s stories and mythology from the  underworld. It is a collaboration with the artist's aunt and author Gerd Mikalsen, who has told and written the stories.

NB! The sound on this project can only be experienced using a  smartphone / headset.

Border / No Border is an international art project and a  collaboration between Prosjekt 67 and Arctic Art Institute. The  art project is represented by Russian artist Ulyana Podkorytova,  British artist Ruth MacLennan and Norwegian/Sami artist Elina Waage Mikalsen. These three artists will present projects on three different locations in Bodø. All of them often work with themes connected to the Arctic or Northern areas, both from culture, history, environment and mythology. Common for the works in this project is knowledge  and women’s role as storytellers and providers of knowledge. Nature and the surroundings play an essential role in the process of understanding  and feeling present, and as a gateway between reality and the  supernatural.
