HERE, THERE & NOWHERE,
studio 17 gallery, STAVANGER, NORWAY, 2014
Since its opening in October of 2013, the artist-run project space Studio 17 has presented a total of 13 exhibitions. Their aim is to show an average of two exhibitions per month. This frequent turnover is a deliberate strategy where a spontaneity in the curating creates an opportunity for immediacy and playfulness – the exhibitions do not necessarily need to be planned long in advance. Through pop-up exhibitions, Studio 17 wishes to provide a platform for young talent and experimentation, though all the while keeping an emphasis on high-quality content. The space is also used for lectures, discussions and other events.
Studio 17 is a non-commercial exhibition space initiated by the artist Line Anda Dalmar and the artist and curator Gunhild Moe. It is run in collaboration with the artists Kaja Cxzy Andersen and Siri Borge, art historian Marie Stokkenes Johansen, and Ingunn Nord-Varhaug.
Celeste's exhibition took place on the Norwegian Summer of 2014.
