Building no. 2

Thursday Events
In Bull.Miletic’s life-long project Heaven Can Wait the revolving restaurant is treated as an optical device, where the attributes of elevation, enclosure and mechanical motion evoke a unique cinematic experience –– a cinéma trouvé.

In the on-going process of documenting the 360-degree"moving" views from each revolving restaurant in the world, Bull.Miletic have studied this unique architectural phenomenon through video, photo, collage and text since 2001. Specifically designed for KinoKino, 24 slowly revolving projections will display a selection of 24 views in their original speed and direction, periodically overlapping and dissolving into each other to create new versions of natural and urban landscapes from above.

Heaven Can Wait, is part of the group exhibition “This Must Be the Place (Pick Me Up And Turn Me Around)” Opening September 13, in KinoKino, Sandnes.Bull.Miletic (Synne Bull and Dragan Miletic) live and work in Oslo, Norway.

Bull.Miletic have shown internationally at venues including the 2006 California Biennial; Henie Onstad kunstsenter, Høvikodden; German Architecture Museum, Frankfurt; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Pasadena Museum of California Art; Victorian Arts Center, Melbourne; Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley; MoCA the Geffen Contemporary, Los Angeles; Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita and Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade. 

The talk will be held in English.
