About the artists
Yu Shuk Pui Bobby 余淑培 is a Hong Kong visual artist who now based in Oslo. Her practice is focused on body culture in different contexts through the filter of her own experience. In recent years she has been examining the topic of human genetic engineering, looking at how this technology shapes our cognition and understanding of the body. Through the media of performance, text, installation, sculpture , and video, she aims to create scenarios that engage, and eventually, the audience become participants in her work.
Ole Petter Ribe (b. 1995, Bærum) works with sculpture, stage installation and text. From the establishment of the micropublisher Lille Vesle Forlag with a focus on concise and gothic children's poetry, to being part of the action- and myth-inspired theatre group Vadmelsbanden, his works range from staged church fires, hate letters in book form to home-built splatter adaptations of lesser-known cult novels.
