Full Moon Gathering: Kristian Øverland Dahl, the Beak Doctor
mandag 30. april 2018 kl. 18:00 på Losæter
Flatbread Society is a project initiated and rooted in Oslo by the international artist collective Futurefarmers as a public art program for Bjørvika, in 2013. The project is commissioned and produced by Bjørvika Utvikling in collaboration with local artists and with funding from Statens Vegvesen Region øst.
Flatbread Society Full Moon Gatherings is a monthly event that happens at Losæter, Oslo. Losæter is envisioned as a cultural institution, a demonstration saeter and a competence center for urban gardening. An attempted commons in the Bjørvika area of Oslo, where ecological food production goes hand in hand with architecture, education, art and food culture.
Artist Kristian Dahl, the Beak Doctor, will be will be hosting this years fourth Flatbread Society Full Moon Gathering.
“The Beak Doctor welcome the perceptive attention of poets, playwrights and philosophers, but he does not want his work to be viewed merely as reflecting fashionable polemics about estrangement, irrationality and despair, and he refuses to be held up as the avatar of the topical Post-human Existential mindset in modern sculpture and painting. To him, this is a distraction from what really matter; he wants to make it clear that it is far more important to understand the essential physicality of labour, the fact that it connects with art of the most distant past, and at the same time are deeply embedded in our experience of modern life.”
