Norum Sæther, Christian Tony

Christian Tony Norum (b. 1980, Oslo) Norum`s artistic practise is shaped by the friction between two opposing colliding prospects,the fight between (performance) and painting.In the end the work is crystallized in multidimensional installations and in-depth poetics. Norum is sometimes digesting art history and issues of poststructural modernist theories through expressive labour, be it painting, sculpture or performance.
The Investigation of surroundings,- architectural and physical qualities of a space, as well as the reminisces of an object can be a trace of a personal story or historical event. Associations and hints are given affectionate attention by weaving together his own truths and narratives. The works of Norum can seem kaleidoscopic, as he operate in different time scales and spaces at the same time, and zoom in on the smallest details, while keeping an eye on a universal perspectives.

Norum has exhibited and performed at institutions and galleries like The Munch Museum in Oslo, Kunstverein GLStrand (Copenhagen), Manifesta 11. Zurich, UKS, young artist society (Oslo), Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival (Papay Westray, Orkney Islands and Cattle Depot Artist Village, Hong Kong), Kunsthall Oslo, The National Autumn Exhibition at Oslo S (Oslo), Munch’s Ekely (Oslo), Kittelsens House/ 1857 gallery (Hvitsten/Oslo/Roma/Zurich), Oslo Kunstforening (Oslo), House of Artists (Oslo), Autocenter (Berlin), Berlin biennale, National gallery of Oslo, The Nationalmuseum Of Contemporary Art Oslo, NoPlace (Oslo), Malmö Konsthall (Malmö), MACRO Museum/ curated by Kaleidoscope Magazine,Roma Contemporary Arena.MacroMuseum,Macro Testaccio, (Roma), MOMA PS1 (New York), Tidens Krav (Oslo), 18th street Art Center (LA) and Gavu Cheb Museum (Praha).
