Haugen, Bjørn Erik

installation, video, sound art, photo, prints

My name is Bjørn Erik Haugen, and I have an MA from the National Academy in Oslo 2007. I work mainly with sculpture, sound- and video installation. I work from a conceptual platform where the idea to the work comes before the material, media or way of expression. My works has been shown on the annual national autumn exhibition in Norway, and have been screened in Wienna, Barcelona, Sweden, Germany, England and in USA. I exhibited at Transmediale 2012, Berlin. I received«Honorary Mention» at Prix Ars Electronica 2012 in the section Digital Musics & Sound Art. One of my videos was screened at Palais de Tokyo, during Rencontres Internacionales, December 2012 and at WRO International Media Art Biennale in May. In 2014 I exhibited at Bucharest Biennial, ISCM 2014 and at Bristol Biennial. Last year I exhibited at Land-Shape, Århus, Spring-exhibition, Fotogalleriet, Oslo, ISEA 2015, Vancouver and at 28. Festival Les Instants Vidéo, Marseille.
I started my artistic research position this autumn. Lasts year I had a solo-exhibition at Haugar Art Museum and I exhibited at the Research Pavilion in Venice and at Wroclaw Media art Biennial 2017. This year I will have an exhibition at K4 galleri, nachtschpeicher 23, Haugar Art Museum and concert at Blurred Edges Festival and at Klang Festival in Copenhagen.
