The art show består av Inari Virmakoski (FI) Espen Sørli/JameOne (NO) og Anita Hillestad (NO)
The art show er en vandreutstilling som tilpasser seg hvert enkelt utstillingslokale og omgivelsene rundt. Det består av faste arbeider i tillegg til arbeider som blir laget for stedet. Arbeidene skaper tilsammen en egen verden der alvorlige temaer som forrurensing og fugledød vises til på en naivistisk, humoristisk måte. Andre temaer er feminisme, gentrifisering og aktuelle temaer fra tiden vi lever i.

THE ART SHOW Karlsøy: July 2018.
The art show is a group show with Inari Virmakoski (Helsinki), Espen Sørli (Oslo) and Anita Hillestad (Nesodden) that examine how collaborating artists with divergent artist practices and expressions create new interpretations, wonder and innovation. Our techniques are performance (Inari Virmakoski), graffiti / painting (Espen Sørli) and textiles, photography and video (Anita Hillestad). The themes of the works are both contemporary and site specific, inspired by nature, feminism, each other and the issues surrounding ecology. Our collaborations have led to several works being made together as well as each artist contributing individual works to the project.
At Karlsøy Anita Hillestad had performance as the frog and Inari Virmakoski had performance in the church.
