FORUM WALKING TOUR:
ELSEBETH JØRGENSEN & BJØRN ARVID BAGGE
WALK ALONG VARIOUS PATHS
Walk Along Various Paths is a performative element of the exhibition Ways of Losing Oneself in an Image by Elsebeth Jørgensen. This atypical walking tour manifests itself as an hours walk between the Hordaland Art Centre and The Picture Collection of the University of Bergen; the two locations of the exhibition consisting of installations of video-, sound- and photo montages. Academic librarian and historian Bjørn Arvid Bagge takes us on a walking tour where he tells a montage like manuscript with three narrative tracks.
Throughout the walk the story teller circles a series of photographer's relation to the city, connected by local historical fragments as well s a meta-story dealing with the importance of the walking tour's capacity to contain memory. Thus Walk Along Various Paths is dealing with how a place produces both images and stories, and where the walking tour acts as an historical concept, a construction of stories and aesthetic action.
Booking essential at hks (at) kunstsenter (.) no. Max. 35 participants per walking tour.
