27 February - 16 May 2015

Welcome to the finissage May 16th! Free admission and refreshments from 15.00. The artist will be present.

Kaia Hugin (b. 1975) primarily works with video, and has received very good reviews for the
performance based video works in the series 
Motholic Mobble. Thematically, these works
revolve around different existential questions, and they are characterized by an unsettling atmosphere.
The main character seems to be caught up in a compulsive-like, repetitive pattern. It is surreal and ghastly, but at the same time humor is a key instrument.

Five parts - a Motholic Mobble
(part 5) was exhibited at the annual Autumn Exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo in 2012,
and Hugin was also represented at the Autumn Exhibition in 2014. Recently she has also exhibited at Frankfurter Kunstverein in Germany
and in Whitechapel Gallery in London. In 2013, the entire Motholic Mobble series was shown in Hugin’s solo exhibition at Oslo Fine Art Society.

In the Vigeland Museum, Hugin will show works from this series, including Motholic Mobble part 10 (2015) which has never been exhibited earlier,
as well as a series of new photographs inspired by the American artist Bruce Nauman.
