ARTICulation 2 - I enter the landscape from the north
ArtBase Helgeland 66°N in collaboration with Kulturbadet Gallery presents a series of exhibitions  focusing upon contemporary artists who were either born, live or have worked over several years in the arctic areas. We believe that artists with this personal experience and years of close association have the North and the Arctic rooted in them. This provides an in-depth understanding and experience of Northern Norway in a distinctive way. Artists from outside can try to understand the affinity and the challenges - but will never be able to experience this unique deep connection through short stays. Therefore, it is crucial that we from the north are the ones who have the clearer and more authentic voice in the stories that are shared with the world. Our goal is to present innovative, high-quality exhibitions with artists who make visible and thematicize the relationship between people, nature, climate and the heritage of future generations.

The collaboration marks the municipality of Alstahaug in Nordland county under European capital of culture Bodø 2024. The project has received support from the Norwegian Culture Fund, Local culture funds Bodø 2024, Sparebank 1 Helgeland Gavestiftelse and Nordland county municipality.

Marianne Moe LOOKING TO THE NORTH 12.04-26.05.2024

Marianne Moe was born and raised in Herøy in Helgeland. She lives and works in Bergen. She mainly makes works of wool felt which are assembled from strips or cut-to-shape elements. In the exhibition Blikk mot nord, she allows herself to be inspired by northern Norwegian cultural history, such as the båtrya. But she is also concerned with the northern Norwegian landscape, changes in the landscape and the mythical stories about the mountains.

Marianne has an MA in textile art from Bergen Academy of Fine Arts. Her works have been purchased for several public collections such as the National Museum, National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design (Trondheim), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oslo Municipality's art collection and Kode Art Museum in Bergen
