Presenting a selection of Benglis’s ceramic works from the early 1990s through to today, this exhibition was framed by the spectacular former grain silo now inhabited by the Bergen School of Architecture. Glacier Burger probed Benglis’s unique method of collapsing, bending, and beating machine-shaped rectangular pieces of clay into energetic forms, resonating with her previous engagement with folds and knots. The exhibition concluded on 30 April with Slithering Green, an afternoon conference inspired by Benglis’s ceramics and co-organised with Bergen Art Academy. The exhibition was the second module in a year-long series of meticulous reinstallations, displays of recent work, devil-may-care detours, and attempts at tracing material histories of Benglis’s artistic practice.
The opening party, co-hosted by SOBAS, the students at the Bergen School of Architecture, was accompanied by a special act by Multi Tati and music by DJ Espen Iden.
