Grete Johanne Neseblod: A Lick Of Sense

11. May - 11. June 2017

We are pleased to welcome you to Grete Johanne Neseblod’s exhibition A Lick of Sense, opening on Thursday, 11 May, 6 pm–8 pm.

Along with being a visual artist, Neseblod owns Neseblod Records, a specialist shop for metal music. Located in Old-Town Oslo (Gamlebyen), the shop is a meeting place for black metal enthusiasts. Neseblod is also a mother, and it is at the intersection between these spheres of life that her art emerges. By laying hold of and mixing together stereotypes of the black-metal environment and the mother’s role, she develops new models of identity at the same time as she challenges prejudice.

“There are obvious contrasts between being a mother of three children, an artist and running Neseblod Records. I recognise and understand these three cultures from both the inside and the outside, and I work to deconstruct the different roles”, says Neseblod.

The artist combines forms of expression in textiles, printing and installation art. At SOFT Gallery, she presents a site-specific installation where clichés about caring for children and black metal aesthetics are combined with humour and gravity. She lets a large roll of black vinyl flooring spread through the exhibition space and obstruct the view. While some leather jackets lie in a stack, others crawl up alongside the vinyl. What appears to be a leather biker-banner with embroidered text leans against the wall, and on a pink banner made of PVC, one can read the exhibition title.

Grete Johanne Neseblod was born in Trondheim and lives and works in Oslo. Since completing a master’s degree (2014) in art at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, she has participated in several group exhibitions and held solo exhibitions at Kunstplass [10] (2016) and at the art society Levanger Kunstforening (2017). Neseblod’s works have been featured in Hustutstillingen (a juried annual national exhibition) in both 2014 and 2015. In the autumn of 2017 she will collaborate with Signe Arnborg Løvaas in a duo-exhibition at the artist-run studio-collective BLOKK in Bergen.
