Dear friends! I am so excited to announce my very first live event! On November 15, I have been invited by Seshen and Ben Gerstein to join them for a concert at the Norwegian Music Academy (Norges Musikkhøgskole) here in Oslo. Seshen is a Japanese vocalist and dancer living in Norway, Ben Gerstein is jazz trombone player based in New York. I first met these two remarkable artists during the unique performance they gave together with Bjørn Arne Løken in the Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum during the Solar Eclipse in August. It was an experience that really touched me deeply, and it literally gave birth to a series of paintings and the piece entitled “Rebirth”. (You can see both and read more about that very special performance here.)
Seshen and Ben have invited me to share my work during this upcoming event. So for the first time ever, I will be painting live in front of an audience. This time, I will be working in a much larger format than usual, sitting on the stage during the concert. It will be so interesting to see what will emerge from this collaboration, and I feel really honored to have this opportunity to co-create with Seshen and Ben. Together, we will explore the world of sound, movement and colours, creating as we go.
The event will take place on Wednesday November 15. at 18:30 in the Sandvoldsalen, at Norges Musikkhøgskole. Tickets are free – I hope I see you there!
