Bjørn Bjarre

We are proud to invite you to our show this monday, Solaris by Bjørn Bjarre. Bjarre was born in Oslo,1966. He studied at The National Academy of Art in Oslo (1989-1994), and has since shown extensively in Norway and abroad. Bjørn is, without doubt, one of the most active artists in Oslo.

The show consists of a new sculpture in progress; a laboratory for experimental extraterrestrial atmospheric research, which is part of a larger body of work related to Stanislaw Lems novel Solaris, about the attempted communications with life on a far-distant planet. On display will also be a series of small drawings envisioning the planets surface. The works in the Solaris series are investigations into the relations between a literary text, mental images, different pop-cultural visualizations of the unknown and invisible phenomena in astronomy and quantum physics.

«To paint in earth´s dull colors the forms clothed in the living light of other worlds is a hard and thankless task; all the more gratitude is due to those who have attempted it. They needed colored fire, and had only ground earths.» - Annie Besant

The sculpture is also part of the Skulpturarena Øst project Box Stories.
