Neseblod, Grete Johanne
Along with being a visual artist, Neseblod owns Neseblod Records, a specialist shop for metal music. Located in Old-Town Oslo (Gamlebyen), the shop is a meeting place for black metal enthusiasts. Neseblod is also a mother, and it is at the intersection between these spheres of life that her art emerges. By laying hold of and mixing together stereotypes of the black-metal environment and the mother’s role, she develops new models of identity at the same time as she challenges prejudice.
“There are obvious contrasts between being a mother of three children, an artist and running Neseblod Records. I recognise and understand these three cultures from both the inside and the outside, and I work to deconstruct the different roles”, says Neseblod.
The artist combines forms of expression in textiles, printing and installation art.
