In transition between then and when
In transition between then and when is an art project involving asylum seekers at Dikemark reception center in Asker, Norway, summer2016. During a six week period, I met with a group of residents, men between 17 and 60 years old, from 5 different countries. We met at the reception center each week to draw together. In my art studio, I processed the impressions from the time I spent at the reception center, and turned it into a series of drawings and texts.
By doing art together and going through a creative process together, we got a shared experience that had a major impact on all involved, personally, artistically and, finally, by interacting with the public visiting the exhibition where the works were exhibited.
The project has been supported by the Arts Council Norway, the UDI and the Western Region.:
