“JANUS HØM” is a documentary video about the artist Janus Høm, one of the members of TOVES, who is producing a solo show at 1857 concurrently with the exhibition Europe, Europe at Astrup Fearnley Museet.
Wednesday September 17th opened our major exhibition of young European contemporary art, 'Europe, Europe'. The exhibition was officially opened by the director of Fritt Ord Foundation, Knut Olav Åmås. Read his opening speech.
'There are whole rooms in the exhibition that have this almost fairy-tale atmosphere. The exhibition takes the shape of strange mental journey from beginning to end. It's a bit like Hansel and Gretel when you go through it.'
