Espen Sommer Eide – artist/composer
Korsmos Ugressarkiv (video)
An exhibition by Kristin Tårnesvik and Espen Sommer Eide.
Entrée January 25th- March 2nd, 2014
The project ascends from biologist Emil Korsmo’s (1863-1953) profoundly detailed and methodically preserved compilation of own material from a lifelong research into combating weeds. In 2012 the artists found crates filled with well-preserved posters, books, letters, documents, roots, printing plates, seeds and a neatly protected herbarium. They got the privilege to work on site in the archive, where they began an exploration of historical materials as well as a systematization of their own artistic process and collaboration, all in the spirit of Emil Korsmo.
