Bjørn Erik Haugen Artist statement
My name is Bjørn Erik Haugen, and I have an MA from the National Academy in Oslo 2007. This year I finished my artistic research PhD.
I work mainly with compositions, sound- and video installation. I work from a conceptual platform where the idea of the work comes before the material, media or way of expression.
My works have been shown at the annual national autumn exhibition in Norway, and have been screened in Vienna, Barcelona, Sweden, Germany, England and in the USA.
I have exhibited at Transmediale 2012, Berlin. I received an «Honorary Mention» at Prix Ars Electronica 2012 in the section Digital Musics & Sound Art. I exhibited at Palais de Tokyo, during Rencontres Internacionales 2012 and at WRO International Media Art Biennale. In 2014 I exhibited at Bucharest Biennial and at Bristol Biennial. 2015 I exhibited at ISEA 2015. In 2017 have a solo- exhibition at Haugar Art Museum and presented a video work at the Second Research Pavilion for the 2017 Venice Biennale. Last year I performed at the Only Connect Festival, Klang Festival, Copenhagen and Blurred Edges, Hamburg, and participated in a group exhibition at Haugar Art Museum. Last year I had a happening at Kunstnernes hus, participated in a group exhibition in Dusseldorf, and finished my PhD in artistic research.
Next year I will have a multimedia performance under Periferien and have a solo exhibition at Telemark kunstsenter.
