Artist Presentation

@ 2:00pm

Location: Western Front, Luxe Hall 303 East 8th Avenue, Vancouver

Please join Bergen-based artist Toril Johannesen for a discussion of her recent work. She will be speaking about a series of drawings which reference the painter Anges Martin and the physicist, astronomer and instrument maker Johann Zollner. This work is currently on view at CSA Space in a group exhibition, “The Line” curated by Adam Harrison.

Toril Johannessen works across various media such as photography, text, drawing, sculpture, storytelling and installation. Johannessen’s interdisciplinary practice often engages a scientific thematic through empirical and theoretical investigation of the relationship between art and science. She has exhibited widely in Europe including recent solo exhibitions at Bergen Kunsthall and the Oslo Fine Art Society. Johannessen is currently a member of the Flaggfabrikken Centre for Photography and Visual Arts, a Bergen based artist collective.
