3.14LIVE

ARCHIVE >>>

3.14LIVE program is developed in conjunction with the exhibitions we present, and these are often a backdrop for the theme of the events.

In a world that is experienced as complex and caricatured at the same time, it is important, as we see it, to give power in the voice to projects that have a direct or indirect sensemaking function. Our job as an art institution is to serve the thought, it is through the mind that we can prove our actions and be able to account for them. We are looking for artistic, free and independent projects that help build up under the conditions of being able to see what is happening around us. ​314LIVE aims to include what is happening in the city, what people are thinking about, talking and doing. We feels great affection for the local scene, this is in short the philosophy behind the programming of our site program. Feel free to contact gitte.satre@kunsthall314.art if you have ideas suitable for this format.​

Below is a list of upcoming events, and an archive over past events, now produced by Kunsthall 3,14 debate editor Gitte Sætre together with artists, curators, and others. 3.14LIVE runs parallel to our main program curated by Director Malin Barth.

ANDY ROCKET AND THE FLYING FISH

01.06 - 08.09.2019

Andre Smoge is a local young man who has made his first carton about sustainability and we thought it perfect to include at this point in time!

The cartoon 'Andy Rocket and the Flying Fish' was designed and written by the Bergen-based Andre Smoge. The main character in the first episode is a 'Fjord Comboy'. He ends up owning a large and beautiful greenhouse that comes floating in the sea and at first, glance looks like a fish. At one point Andy Rocket ends up by the pier in Bergen. At this point he has fallen in love with the greenhouse, he has moved in and lives a self-sufficient happy life. Andy Rocket's life undergoes a great deal throughout the cartoon and we as readers learn a lot through what the protagonist himself is doing. Like, Nikola Tesla and Tibetan Levitation Inventions and how we can build a water purification system ourselves when we can't trust the system.

The comic Andy Rocket and the Flying Fish, episode I is 45 pages long and was produced over 50 days, and was completed the day before its launch at Kunsthall 3.14 in conjunction with the opening of the main exhibiton EVENT HORIZON.

A smoky fresh ink talking about exactly what we are all pondering hard these days. What happens now?

Behold meg is her first book.

Å RYDDE OPP I GAMLE SYNDER; UP IN THE AIR
07.06 .2018. 19.00-21.00


PAB LOCAL
Curated by Performance Art Bergen/Gitte Sætre 

The framework for the performance event in Daniel Wurtzel exhibition 'Shitstorm' talks about the human impact on the environment. Environmental challenges are difficult to relate to, but art can make it easier for us to mobilize and act. And the
 installation in the gallery space at Kunsthall 3.14 gives a human scale to something big and abstract.

Artists often create worlds of fiction in order for us to get to know, what we do not yet know. 

 

Being a performance artist in Norway is perhaps one of the freest positions one can imagine. Kunsthall 3.14 together with Performance Art Bergen challenged the local performance scene through an Open Call with the question: what do they want to communicate?

In Norway, we declare #Metoo to be wide and deeply structured.

Me too has hit the public debate so hard that people in power are losing their positions in high numbers. It seems like something is happening and it seems to us that it´s NO mayfly.  However, we live in Scandinavia a region said to be the most progressive democratic society where women are more equal to men than in other places around the world. Kunsthall 3.14 wrote former exhibitors around the world and asked how the Me too campaign is received in their countries.

 

We formulated three questions and send an e-mail to 15 artists covering all corners of the world and with their permission we post the comments.

SEMINAR

Brandon LaBelle is in collaboration with Kunsthall 3.14 doing a series of rough seminars, resulting in an exhibition to open October 2018. The Imaginary Republic looks at questions of public life and civic culture in today’s global environment, and how recent economic, social, and political unrest have led to an intensification of grass-roots initiatives, artistic activism, and forms of public commoning – what Stavros Stavrides terms “communities in movement”. The project aims to consider strategies for creative instituting and independent social configurations. Within this framework, questions about the public good and commonwealth are brought forward, allowing for a deeper inquiry into how art may work to reconstitute public power.

 

Seminar #2 is led by Ekaterina Sharova (art historian, curator, producer, educator) who will present her current research devoted to folk culture in Northern Russia, seen in the light of L. Vygotsky, J. Beuys, P. Bourdieu and P. Freire.

buy a 'small act in a big tale' Christmas present made by Syrian girls and boys at a school in Lebanon.

The children make sense of making nice things that others can hold in their hands and bring home. A macabre thing in many ways, but most of all, it's a small act in a big tale.

 

The money from the sale helps children through the winter and is an investment in the future!

POLITICAL DEBATE

23.04.2017 

FRAMTIDSLABORATORIET

Soups and Stories 

 

Kunsthall 3.14 have an ongoing collaboration with the local dialogue based artist-group Soups&Stories. The duration of our collaboration is 3 years and during the B-Open weekend in Bergen, the performance group reenacted a dialogue from the book 'New Worlds' by the artist Jonas Staal. In order to tell, what we look upon as a more or less hidden story. The story of maybe the most ambitious and radical political project in the world today; the political work by the Democratic Union Party or PYD in northern Syria.

The American Poet: Ca Condrad

A collaboration between Kunsthall 3.14 and Institutt for Art, Music and Design, UiB

We have been a big fan of Ca Condrads ever since we got to know him during the Audiatur festival for new poetry some time ago. We special found interest in his (Soma)tic poetry rituals. The best way to describe why so, is by clicking more and read Ca Conrads own words on  (Soma)tic poetry.

SPECIAL SCREENING
SARA RAJAEI

In the gaze of Panoptes (2016)

Single channel video installation, color, sound, 20 min.

28.10. - 06.11.2016

At 3,14 we will now be proudly screening two separate projects developed under the program.

Over a period of five years, 3,14 has been following the artistic ouvre of the Iranian born and Rotterdam based artist Sara Rajaei. The institution, fellow curators and audiences have had a unique opportunity to chart her development as well as her relationship to Bergen. The first exhibition at 3,14 provided an introduction to Rajaei’s practice featuring, at that time, both early and recent works. For the second viewing, Rajaei presented exclusively new pieces. As the latest round, BEK and 3,14 are delighted to present the video In the gaze of Panoptes, developed and produced in Bergen under 3,14´s artist in residency program, Circulating Air, in collaboration with BEK. Rajaei’s work is often grounded on the concept of time, memory and story telling.Rajaei studied at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and attended the two year residency program at Rijkakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam.

SPECIAL SCREENING

TATIANA BLASS
Encrenca_Trøbbel (2014)

Video, 7 min. (in the gallerys´ vault)

28.10. - 06.11.2016

We are glad to finally present for the Bergen public the video work Encrenca_Trøbbel of our earlier residency artist, Tatiana Blass (1979), a profiled Brazilian artist based in São Paulo. Blass works with different techniques, such as painting, sculpture, video and installation. Recurrent characteristics present in her work are the depiction or staging of the absurd, the insistence in transforming functional objects into dysfunctional ones and the distortion of language in something ineffective, into its breakdown.

PERFORMANCE

AFROGALACTICA: A brief history of the future by Kapwani Kiwanga

17.09.2016

In connection with the exhibited installation Rumors that Maji was a lie... by the Canadian artist Kapwani Kiwanga, 3.14 will be hosting the first chapter in the performance-trilogy project AFROGALACTICA (2011 – ongoing).

 

Posing as an anthropologist from the future, the artist engages us in vast fields of knowledge relating to afrofuturism and African astronomy. Plunging into the past to retrieve archives of popular culture, she uses science fiction, to make projections about the future.
