Talstad, Janne

Photo- and video installations

Photo- and video installations

Overvåket/Überwachung II
The short videos that Janne Talstad shows on old tube monitors built into the newly erected walls at Noplace, obviously rub shoulders with the show’s title (overvåket means surveilled), inviting an immediate interpretation; short sequences depict the kind of enclosed, ominous spaces that are typically equipped with surveillance cameras feeding live to a next door monitor. Admitted, not all of them are interrogation rooms (if any) but the the fixed frames and cold, decrepit interiors with their east-block atmosphere invite the popular imagination to project a paranoiac feeling of being incarcerated onto them. Nonetheless, facilities intended to hold people, more or less against their will, is certainly a recurrent motif in the exhibited videos and photographs, in Overvåket/Überwachung II.

The VIDEO OPEN film program is derived from the idea of Open Source, which means the open video is a video that can be freely used, changed, and shared. Thus the program in Video Open can be changed by both the curator and the artists involved over time. The program stays the same, with alterations based on natural needs. The program becomes a vessel for content, and in the arbitrary of the diverse content curatorial challenges will become obvious, which again creates the need for curatorial narration in the program.
Still the Academy was a starting point, not a conclusion.
