Kluge, Stian Eide


I work with sculpture and its spawns with a special interest in the dialogue between a work’s internal components, the preconditions for its physical existence and its relationship to mundane or utilitarian objects of the immediate world. The pieces are often formulated in a manner nourishing an internal friction and doubt between their constituents. They can have a mode of presentation that resist stability – often as illustrations of a certain stage in an given process.
