Kristinehamns konstmuseum och Vänföreningen Kristinehamns konstmuseum har glädjen att presentera 2017 år stipendiemottagare:

Simon Torssell Lerin & Bettina Hvidevold Hystad

Juryns motivering:
Lerin/Hystads verk framkallar mångbottnade audiovisuella koncept. Båda konstnärerna utforskar genom olika processer interferenser mellan ljud, musik, fotografi, video, text och måleri. Vi blir bjudna på en resa i gränslandet mellan installation och performance som kännetecknas av både lekfullhet och exakthet - nya överraskande dörrar öppnas mellan konst och experimentell musik!

En utställning med Lerin/Hystad kommer att öppnas samtidigt med sommarutställningen den 13 maj.



The website is updated with pictures and text from our exhibition at the Kunstmuseet Nord-Trøndelag. You will also find presentations of our new works Creatures Of The Deep and In Bloom.

"It's all more organic, futuristic, sparkling and exuberant. And you hear the fun going on off, thanks to the many wonderful, frivolous and sometimes almost alien sounds they produce. Thus they simply deliver their third strong listening adventure in a row."
Our new album reviewed in De Subjectivisten.
