The exhibition Mathias by Idun Baltzersen and Anna Ihle January 31st 2019 – February 24th 2019 at Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst, Trondheim. Text on the work Grinding in Adressa (in Norwegian).

Mathias - Ihle og Baltzersen - TSSK 2019

Idun Baltzersen and Anna Ihle have emerged on the Norwegian art scene with questions related to the role of the artist. In their exhibition at Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art they will explore the conditions for artistic work by testing different strategies for stress management and how artists can achieve recognition. How do we use language to present artists? What are the criteria for being a successful artist? Baltzersen and Ihle works with woodcuts, wood carving, installation art and video in their practices to explore these questions.

«It is hard to find images of Oda Krohg’s paintings on the internet. Though we do find several portraits of her painted by her bohemian colleagues. According to the internet Krohg was the bohemian princess that had an intimate relationship to them all. Several renowned artists are named Mathias. In the exhibition «Mathias» we want to use the language that is used to portray him. Picturing him, objectifying him, owning his image. Our homage will be transmitted to us. Our attitude. Our stress management and success. We grit our teeth. We look away. Lift our gaze».


The book Uvirksomme Hender / Idle Hands consists of documentation of selected artworks by Anna Ihle (2014–2018), texts by Kathi Weeks, Roland Paulsen, Merete Hermansen Jonvik, Basim Mardan and Geir Haraldseth. Design by Joseph Atkinson. Editors: Geir Haraldseth and Torunn Larsen. Available at Rogaland Kunstsenter (200NOK).

The concept of recreation undergirds the works Anna Ihle will show at Kuppelkupp on the Thursday before International Workers’ Day (1 May). There are also some direct sources of inspirations for these works: for one, a radio interview from 10 January 2018 with the director of Spekter (Norway’s employers’ union), Anne-Kari Bratten, who discussed women working part-time, for another, a speech held at the opening of the exhibition Bjarne Melgaard/Sverre Bjertnes in Stavanger earlier this year. As part of her instruction-performance, Ihle has invited the local Voice of the Soul Choir, directed by Priscila Serrano, to perform a work composed by Jens Borge. By making small, ambiguous interventions in the choral programme and in the cupola, Ihle actualizes questions about work, productivity, free time and the reigning ideals and hierarchies in society.

Solo show opening at RAM Galleri, Oslo, December 14th

For the exhibition Downtime (Nedetid) Anna Ihle will present four new works. The production of Downtime has taken place, for the most part, between breakfast and dinner on work days, as Ihle considers a normative Scandinavian work week to be a guideline for her practice. During her working hours, the artist has been negotiating between a protestant Norwegian west coast work ethic, and a start-up vibe, both inspired by Ihles hometown Stavanger, the oil capital of Norway. Since the start of her MFA,  Anna Ihle has been making art while questioning the meaning of work today. In her artistic practice, she has been stone carving, wood carving, gold panning and invited in people for conversations in the work process. The conversations often contain questions like «When is your work day over? What is considered a job? Hey, what do you think about while working? When are the hours after work recreation and not just rehabilitation?»

Heavenly Orders is an exhibiton series at Spriten Kunsthall. WE VALUE SWEAT is the final part, curated by Camilla Edström Ödemark and Anna Ihle.

WE VALUE SWEAT is about artistic labor, industry and sweat. Because if someone who´s worked their ass off- they´re probably awesome. Someone who´s not afraid of dirt and who´s all in before deadline. Someone who loves their work. We value that.

The exhibition is distributed at three floors at Spriten Kunsthall, ones housing a distillery (a side industry of the cities earlier main industry: wood processing). The exhibition is shown by guided tours by the curators. The guided tours is built on stories about the art works and from historical events of the building (based on conversations with Kjell Åge Isaksen, previously an employee in the Norske Skog Union at the very location).

At  WE VALUE SWEAT Anders Moss shows the work “320 tenners gnissel” in the tower room at Spriten Kunsthall,  a cog wheel in wood streching from floor to roof. Moss has taken on a project he knows will make him sweat. That he does´t know how to solve. One of Henna Hyvärinen contributions is the work “CV”, which is her CV printed on a drapery the visitors need to pass. Something bodily is constant in her work, a sticky stain on the blank surface. An umbilical cord which can´t be cut.

Henna Hyvärinen (f.1985, Iisalmi) is a performance- and video artist educated at the academy in Helsinki, Gerrit Rietveld i Amsterdam and the Royal College of Art, Stockholm. Hyvarinens works reflect on the role of the artist and the relationshop between artist and art work. Hyvvärinen have previously exhibited at eg Kiasma and Kunsthalle Helsinki and is a part of the crew behind SORBUS Gallery in Helsinki.

Anders Moss (f.1981, Horten) holds his BFA from the Royal College of Art in Stockholm and works with mechanical installations, often with motorized elements. He finds his material at junk yards, Craigs list or wherever he finds something he wants to bring to his studio. At his workshop in Horten, Moss tries on different materials and shifts between making practical objects to machines he can´t get started.

Jasmin Daryani and Camilla Edström Ödemark

Curated by Anna Ihle and Stina Ihle Amankwah

Facebook event here.



Stina:  I just don´t understand why people are concerned about not being called a racist, instead of not beinga racist. Don´t they understand how the things coming out of their mouth tastes like crap?

Anna: I guess, but it´s really uncomfortable discovering you´ve been eating shit for years.

Stina: Yes, but isn´t it just better to realize that? Rather than going through life believing that shit is food?

Sometimes I feel like the level of whiteness in this world overwhelming. The majority of the people on this planet are not white, yet my sister has asked me before meeting new people “do they already know that we’re brown?”.  As if all other colours have to come with a prior warning to let people decide on and practice a non-racist reaction or maybe even come up with a white witty joke to relieve the awkwardness that may follow. Whiteness penetrates all of us. Also people of colour. Most of us, when we hear about an instance of racism our first reaction is to look for an excuse or a justification on the side of the perpetrator.  Maybe the victim was aggressive, maybe they were a criminal, maybe they really were not the best qualified candidate for the sales assistance position even though they ran the biggest mattress company in the whole of Lebanon.  Whiteness can even make you question your own behavior and complicity in situations of injustice.  Maybe I did act suspiciously, maybe I am not good enough for this position, maybe I did hold something in my hand that looked like a gun.

-Stina Ihle Amankwah

Jasmin Daryani (b. 1988, Tehran) has recently graduated from the MFA program of Konstfack in Stockholm, where she also lives and works. Daryanis body of work ranges from photography, silk-screen, text and installation. In Daryani’s practice she investigates the notion of the social, linguistic and political construction of origin, diaspora and violence. Through revision and repetition, but also by reinscribing the postcolonial term mimicry, she mediates the self in relation to culture and history. Jasmin Daryani’s work has previously been exhibited at Centrum för Fotografi, Trädgården and Liljevalchs Vårsalong in Stockholm.

Camilla Edström Ödemark  (b.1985, Åland) did a BFA at Konstfack, Stockholm where she currently works from. Edström Ödemark works mainly with video and installations. Her practice explores how a subjective identity relates to a national identity, and how this national identity functions as a strategy for inclusion and exclusion. In her works she focuses on how the normative gaze of the national identity represents itself in language and images, and how it influences the identity of, e.g. a white privileged group. Earlier she has exhibited at Third Space Gallery (Helsinki), Mångkulturellt Centrum (Stockholm) and Moderna Bar, Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Stina Ihle Amankwah (f. 1993, Bergen) studies International and European law at Hague University, and is currently preparing for an internship at  Detroit Workers & Builders i USA,  where she works with human rights in the organization advocating for and with homeless, un-emploied and under-emplied in Detroit. Ihle Amankwah is obsessed about the thought of burning the down the system till there´s not even ashes left, and for Heavenly Orders # 2, Ihle Amankwah contributes with a text, and a set of questions for the artists.

Anna Ihle (f.1984, Stavanger) is this years grant recipient in the municipality of Skien. Ihle has studied at Konstfack, Stockholm and National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, and have previously shown works at Konsthall C and Uppsala Art Museum, Sweden, and curated shows at Living Art Museum, Reykjavik and Husby Konsthall, Stockholm. For the exhibition series Heavenly Orders, which Ihle and Edström Ödemark initiated, contributors are invited- people who in their work take a firm grip on systems and structures and shake them.

HEAVENLY ORDERS #1: We Value Good Art

▲ Nicole Levaque

▲ Jaakko Pallasvuo

Opening Saturday June 6th 5pm, with an introduction by  curators

Do you ever have the feeling that the world is becoming smaller? That our reality is an oyster for the capitalist project, where creation is slowly being translated into understandable monetary units. A piece of land in euros, a bird singing in dollars. Oil, water, landscape. Morality transferred and exchanged into value through the goodwill projects of multinational corporations. Curiosity, dreams, creativity. Price tag.

In a contemporary global market, where everything comes with a price, Heavenly Orders no. 1 seeks out artistic practices that questions the monetary value of creative and intellectual capital. What does the art world translate into money when evaluating an art piece? What is being transferred in a deal between the artist and the collector? The artist and the viewer?

The works of Levaque and Pallasvuo shares a mutual interest in the value of art. By perverting and distorting materials and techniques traditionally regarded as ”of high value” within the art world, both artists position themselves against the market. Traditional ways of creating value are abandoned, forcing us to see the creative process of an artist as a commodity. What is the price of such a commodity?

On the show at Uppsala Art Museum (in Swedish)

At  “Anna Ihles installation Idle Hands har fått eget rum, kanske är detta en särart, ingen synlig människa finns bland de ingående delarna – de är däremot inskrivna i verket. En kraftfull hyvelbänk hänger upp-och-ner från linor i taket – upplyft; snarade, bundna, förankrade, som sänken för att arbetsredskapet inte ska stiga till väders och bli det man ärar – mer än det äras bör, hänger ängladelarna som befinner sig närmare marken, det som ska synliggöras – det pågående arbetet” (Excerpt, text by Marit Jonsson)

At  ”Idle Hands som består av en gammal hyvelbänk som upp- och nervänd är surrad i taket som ett fjättrat monster. Från bänken hänger en dekonstruerad träängel i bitar och under verket ligger en hög färska spånor. En sadomasochistisk bild av ett uråldrigt hantverk som rymmer mängder av tolkningsmöjligheter”. (Excerpt, text by Sebastian Johans).
