We have two new exhibits coming up at Berg by Nordan Art, The Joy Formidable, by Livio Korobase, and L’avion en Papier, by ◦⊱Mi⊰◦, lasting from October through December 2016. The opening is this Sunday, October 16 at 10 AM SLT and our Nordan Art house DJ, Eif, aka d-oo-b, will spin tunes as usual. It is such an honor for me to host these two artists as they are both close to my heart. Livio Korobase’s installation is inspired by the music by the group The Joy Formidable, specifically by the song This Ladder is Ours. Livio suggests that another clue about his work is “the trick is to go the cats circle near the big Luna cat, and look at the blue girl… .” ◦⊱Mi⊰◦ notes that this exhibit has given me the opportunity to work with the paper airplane. To me, the paper airplane symbolizes poetry and freedom. Most importantly, it is ephemeral; it takes off and flies. It is a gesture, a moment, a magical plane that eventually smoothly falls, but does not break and can fly again. A moment of dream and grace. The paper airplane can be created by anyone, anywhere; both children and adults alike recognize the transient poetry of this simple object. In my photographs, the paper plane is used as a paper airplane, but also as a sail, a wing, a hat, a boat hull, a safe keeper and it does not leave the woman as it is part of her. The Nordan om Jorden sim will open to the public again on the day of the opening. Please be on the lookout for group announcements. And look forward to seeing you all this weekend!
