I am the director of Velferden, a show room and culture centre located in a 50´s ballroom in a closed down mining area in Southwestern Norway. At Velferden I produce and curate exhibitions, residencies, concerts and arrange dialogues related to the local mining history, geology, tourism and contemporary art.

10 artists from Denmark, Sweden and Lithuania visited Velferden for one week in August. The project was initiated by Kunsthal 44 at Møen in Denmark, curated by Nico Anklam, and sought to re-contextualise the work of Danish Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen. The project was a cooperation with Rogaland Kunstsenter.

10 Swedish and Norwegian artists spent 2,5 weeks at Velferden. On August the 5th the artists presented performances, installations, videos and workshops for approximately 150 visitors. The project was a cooperation with Rogaland Kunstsenter.
2014: I produced Glasmo 2014, an exchange project with 12 recently graduated artists from Malmø Art Academy and Glasgow School of Art.
