Welcome to a new edition of the lecture series 30:ten, where contemporary artists present their work in ten pictures and thirty minutes. In this edition you will meet Lesia Vasylchenko. The presentation will be in English.
Vasylchenko (born in Kyiv, Ukraine based in Oslo, Norway) works across a range of media including video, photography and installation. Vasylchenko is a co-curator of the artist-run gallery space Podium and a founder of STRUKTURA. Time, a cross-disciplinary initiative for research and practice within the framework of visual arts, media archaeology, literature, and philosophy. She holds a degree in Journalism from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and Fine Arts from Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Vasylchenko have been shown among others at MUNCH Museum, Oslo; Louvre Museum, Paris; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale. Her work is part of the collection of Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA / Finnish National Gallery in Helsinki, Finland.
The artist talks 30:ten invite you to exclusive insights into a series of contemporary art practices. Our student panel has selected eight active artists who, within thirty minutes and ten pictures, get to present themselves and their work. After the lectures, we will open for questions from the audience. The lectures are held one Tuesday a month in the KH cinema and are free and open to everyone.
For the occasion, Lofthus Samvirkelag offers an artist discount to all participants on presentation of a ticket.
