Floor: 2
Room number: 3.
The studio is open Saturday 27 April from 12-17

Martin Kolsrud is an Oslo based artist and works from his studio collective in Helsfyr. His work consists of printmaking, drawing and installations. He currently teaches art at Hersleb High School. People play a central part in Kolsrud’s artworks. By activating the mundane and putting the familiar into new contexts, his artwork opens for curiosity and invites the public to participate. In doing so the conversations and expressions from the public bind the work together as a social installation.
