John K. Raustein

9. January - 9. February 2014

Welcome to opening Thursday 9. January 6 pm - 8 pm.

We are pleased to start the year with an exhibition with brand new works by John K. Raustein. Raustein is a significant and very active textile artist, and we are very proud to finally be able to show his works in SOFT gallery. The exhibition “Hemmeligheter uten sammenheng”  conisists of several works in various formats and can be read as a coherent spatial installation.

John K. Raustein has in recent years worked with everyday materials and created monumental textile installations and sculptures. He has used the materials inherent qualities, such as fall, rigidity and weight, and almost pushed them farther than they can tolerate, to the border of collapse.

John K. Raustein was born in 1972 in Stavanger, and lives and works in Oslo. He has a Masters degree from the Art Academy of Bergen, department of textile in 2000. He has exhibited separately at, among others, RAM gallery, gallery FORMAT, Hå gamle prestgard, House of Foundation, and was recently shown at Akershus Kunstsenter. Raustein has participated in many group exhibitions both at home and abroad; Forårsudstillingen in Copenhagen, Høstutstillingen in Oslo, Wireless, Connection, Slump - luck by chance, and Tendenser to name a few. His art has been purchased by the Museum of Applied Art in Oslo, Trondheim and Bergen, and to Gascco Collection. He has made commissioned works to Goshen School and to Royal Caribbean ship Mariner of the Seas.
