17.—18. april

Atelierbesøk med Oslo Open

What is a good studio, and what is its importance for the work that an artist creates? What is the driving force behind the choices an artist makes? Oslo Open meets twelve artists in their workspace: the atelier!

As a part of Oslo Open’s pandemic friendly content we have produced a series of twelve artist portraits in video format. Our new film initiative «Atelierbesøk med Oslo Open» premieres on Saturday 17th of April to mark that this year’s studio weekend has started. A new episode will be aired every Saturday.

Join us on a visit to Damla Kilickiran’s atelier!

Damla Kilickiran (b. 1991, SE) recently graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo, having previously studied at Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art and Creative Writing, Södertörns University, and the College of Printmaking in Stockholm. Recent exhibitions include participation in Lofoten International Art Festival (2019) and the group presentations Steinalderdrømmer at Nordnorsk kunstnersenter, Svolvær (2018); THE SUN SETS AT 17:43 at Akademirommet, Oslo (2019); The Suiters, Momentum at F15, Moss (2019); and the solo shows On Sense and Glyphs at Destiny’s Atelier in Oslo and Purpur Glimpse at Small Projects, Tromsø (2017). Kilickiran lives and works in Oslo. This spring she will have a solo exhibition at the Young Artists’ Society (UKS) in Oslo.

Follow us throughout the spring and summer to meet twelve artists from the fields of visual arts and contemporary crafts, ranging from well established to recent graduates!

The films will be available throughout our channels and are funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
