Alt Går Bra

Alt gar bra

Hvor ofte har du muligheten til å snakke om ditt drømme-samfunn?
Måten samfunnet er organisert på avgjør alle aspekter av livet ditt: kvaliteten på helseomsorg, utdanning, offentlig transport og boligsituasjon. Andre viktige avgjørelser bestemmer hvordan samfunnet organiseres og drives, som for eksempel utviklingen av bærekraftige måter å leve på som tar i betraktning naturvern og beslutninger om hvordan vi håndterer vold, krig og fred, for å nevne noe.

Kunstnergruppen Alt Går Bra vil gjerne høre om dine drømmer, for prosjektet Den norske idealstaten.
Alt Går Bra
vil være på Kabuso tirsdag 5., fredag 8. og lørdag 9. desember for å utføre en spørreundersøkelse med Øysteses innbyggere.
Kunstnergruppen vil presentere prosjektet i Kabuso tirsdag 5.desember kl. 12.00. Alt Går Bra vil deretter være tilgjengelig på Kabuso for å gjennomføre én til én spørreundersøkelser hvor du vil få anledning til å fritt uttrykke dine ideer om din personlige idealstat.

Én til én spørreundersøkelser i kaféen, Kabuso :
tirsdag 5. desember 12.30 – 15.00
fredag 8. desember 11.00 – 15.00
lørdag 9. desember 11.00 – 16.00

Workshops at KHMessen

Like every year just before the summer holidays, pupils from the local ungdomsskule (secondary school) are visiting KHMessen.
Hans Pulles organizes these events every year, together with the artists that are staying in Messen at that time, and who want to be part. We make a full program starting with a studio tour, where we visit all the studio´s from the artists in Messen. There is a reading about Messen and about what creativity means. And after a short break there are workshops, given by the artists.

This year the workshops were about complex form finding with soap and curved folding exploration with paper. These workshops have as goal to expand the pupils idea of creativity, the function of creativity and of being an artist or designer. And of course to show that it´t FUN !

MarikaClay

Marika Kaipainen is showing her community art project through a powerpoint presentation, and demonstrates a clay workshop where the pupils have to clay a face blindfolded (not allowed to watch). They have to trust their hands as being their eyes.

Saurav

Saurav Roy Chowdury shows his bronze works at his studio.

folding

After seeing an introduction video about the company Robofold. The folding workshop started, lead by Hans Pulles and Marika Kaipainen. Making a 3D form by folding paper with simpel household tools like plates and knitting needles. Starting with simpel forms, ending with complex forms.

 

Soap1

Soap2

After seeing the introduction video of the architect Otto Frei and Zaha Hadid, the pupils discovered complex forms by using soap. Bending aluminium threads into soap holders, and then explore and play. The workshop was lead by Despina Nissiriou and Saurav Roy Chowdury.

 

These workshops are financial supported by NORSK KULTURRÅD and SPAREBANKSTIFTINGA HARDANGER.
