Ådlandsvik, Stian


The processes, techniques, actors and materials in my work are poetic tools that draw together across time, place and different types of knowledge and ideas. It can be parastitic mushrooms that connect with shipyard workers and negation of global trade, stone age tools with today’s pre-packed concrete bags and 3D printing techniques, or Europe’s early modernity, a globalized and automated automotive industry where human labor is almost superfluous and a tailor. As a whole they open up cooperation between people and knowledge that transcends society’s capital logic, quantification and structuring, to replace it with a common alternative search for a future.
