In the last week of the semester, the Academy Room will be turned into the research laboratory RISS. Here, a group of 10-year-olds, a runologist, three art students and an artist will study material text culture through exercises in technology and cognition. The laboratory is led by Petrine Vinje, in an installation built for the tuition room – a social space that allows learning through speculation.
About the project
In the installation, Petrine Vinje shows the serial work HSS19--20--. This work has been developed before and during isolation, over the last two years. In the artwork, the artist`s interest in non-conscious cognition in both humans and technological artifacts come to the fore. In HSS19--20—she examines the plastic, material (physical, energetic, informative) through the haptic in order to come closer to, to touch and to be touched.
Artist Petrine Vinje is currently a research fellow at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Department of Art and Craft.
Contributing runologist Karen Langsholt Holmqvist is a research fellow at NIKU, the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research and University of Oslo.
The project is supported by Arts Council Norway.
