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.
