From Bergen to Melbu
BAG Art Camp was invited by Nordland Academy for Arts and Sciences to be the festival artists during Sommer-Melbu in July 2015.
For BAG ArtCamp 2015 a group of nine artists from Bergen Ateliergruppe travelled to Melbu in the North of Norway for an intensive two week-long workshop resulting in an exhibition during the Summer-Melbu festival. The artists developed site specific works and interventions in the newly restored building of Melbu Felleslageret, working with concepts that looked at the historical, social, physical and cultural connections between Bergen and Melbu. Historically these two places are connected by the transport of dried fish and since the 19thC the coastal steamer that runs the length of Norway northwards from Bergen.
The participating artists were Ragnhild Ohma, Marit Tunestveit Dyre, Sabine Popp, Malin Lennström-Örtwall, Imi Maufe, Arne Rygg, Sarah Jost, Marianne Morild og Anja Ulset. The exhibition “og at vi sammen bar” showed various installations, photos, video, drawings, performance and wall papers.
