Oscar Muñoz
Videoworks 2005-2008
One of the leading artists on Columbia´s dynamic art scene.

Oscar Muñoz uses video, drawing and photography to explore themes of memory and human loss. The focal point in his work is the image as impermanent, using the fleeting quality of the techniques itself as a mediator, creating metaphors for the human condition.
His work subtly alludes to the impact of the political and social turmoil in Colombia – as Muñoz reinforces: My work today arises from my interest in understanding how a society comes to accept war - or rather, a dark and corrupted succession of wars over more than 50 years and which have not yet ended - as part of the routine of living. Still – the subjects are non-spectacular, as in “In Proyecto para un memorial”, a 5-screen videowork where faces drawn with water on a sun baked pavement, rapidly evaporate before being repainted, each screen showing a different face in different phases of becoming and disappearing.
Oscar Munoz’s works has been shown extensively, among recent exhibitions are La Biennale de Venezia (2007) and Iniva in London (2008), and he is represented in international collections such as Tate Modern, Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, Bogota; Museum of Modern Art ‘La Tertulia', Cali, Colombia and Hirshorn Museum, Washington D.C.

Mahlet Ogbe Habte
Mahlet Ogbe Habte, born and raised in Eritrea, presently living in Norway, shows her last videowork “The ambience of bereavement”. Her work focus on loss and grief, but in her case through the mourning culture in Eritrea, especially the grieving sound, which transforms through a mixture of crying and shouting almost into song.

Hyun-sook Hong
(South Korea)
"Four columns and twelve windows"
Prosjektet ”Four columns and twelve windows” er prosessuell, hvor det organiske materialet får en livssyklus
som speiler liv og død gjennom utstillingsperioden. Verket endrer tildels form og karakter over tid. Klær som materiale ser Hong på som objekt som har overføringsverdi og filosofisk er signifikant i form av både kulturell tilhørighet, livsfase indikator, kjønns identitet. Hong er også opptatt av forbruk og miljø.
Hyun-sook Hong er gjestekunstner på USF Verftet

Gülsün Karamustafa
(Turkey). "The City and the Secret Panther Fashion">>>
Den røde tematiske tråd gjennom hennes kunstneriske produksjon de siste tiår er kulturell identitet. Filmen er fiktiv og humoristisk. Betrakteren møter kvinneskikkelser som skaper seg et rom og et univers borte fra Islamistenes fordømmende represalier.
In co-operation with RODEO-gallery, Istanbul
