FORUM ARTIST TALK
Accompanying his solo exhibition blink, HC Gilje will give a presentation of his work.
The exhibition recently opened at Hordaland Art Centre, and will be open this evening. Gilje has explored how audiovisual technology can be used to transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret this physical space. During an extensive career in the cross disciplinary field working with real time environments, installations, live performance, set design and single-channel video, Gilje has made different spaces come to life.
HC Gilje (b. 1969, Kongsberg, Norway) has presented his work through different channels throughout the world: in concert-venues, theatre and cinema venues, galleries, festivals and through several international dvd releases, including 242.pilots live in Bruxelles on New York label Carpark which won the first prize at Transmediale 2003 in Berlin and Cityscapes on Paris-label Lowave. He was a member of the video-impro trio 242.pilots, and was also the visual motor of the dance company kreutzerkompani. He was educated at the Intermedia Department of The Art Academy in Trondheim, Norway 1995-99.
