The Noing Uv It exhibition: a talk from the curators

"The Noing Uv It", a multimedia art exhibition in Norway which draws inspiration from Russell Hoban's novel Riddley Walker, opened last week at the Bergen Kunsthall.

"The exhibition is really well attended," commented Solfrid Otterholm, Curatorial Assistant, "and we have had many positive responses from our audience."

Installation photos have been taken, and it is hoped we can post some of these on this site in the near future.

Last Saturday the Kunsthall director Martin Clark and artist Steven Claydon had a conversation with Graham Harman around the exhibition, described as "a giant roving concrete poem". The talk covers a range of topics including Heidegger, Greenberg, surrealism, quantum physics and "object-oriented ontology" and is available to watch on Vimeo, below.

"Last night Timothy Morton had a really nice talk as well," commented Solfrid, "and we'll publish the recordings in a week or so."

More details about the exhibition will be posted here as and when it arises. The Noing Uv It takes place until 15th February, with The Showing Uv It exhibiting from 27th February to 5th April.
