Borghild Rudjord Unneland
12 May - 12 June 2011
The power of paradox is a central starting point in Borghild Rudjord Unneland`s artistic production. With everyday objects as instruments she thematizes social connections and structural systems on both a micro and a macro level. Unneland has a vivid approach to fiberart in her works. Through the tactile and snug materials she reflects around recognition, sensibility and human existence. The language of the work points in direction of the absurd and nasty, but also the beautiful and vulnerable.
Borghild Rudjord Unneland (b. 1978) lives and works in Bergen. She is a graduate of the National Academy of Bergen (KHiB) and has exhibited at numerous institutions in Norway and abroad, including Akkershus Kunstsenter, Lillestrøm / Rogaland Kunstsenter, Stavanger/ Røhsska museet, Gøteborg / Oslo Kunstforening / Oslo, Bomuldsfabrikken, Arendal / Prøverommet, Bergen / Kaunas Biennial, Lithauen og Galleri By The Way, Bergen.
