A magnificent visual and aural experience is expected when the young Norwegian artist Are Mokkelbost (f.1976) presents a completely new installation of HOK. Mokkelbost has in recent years worked with collage, design, sculpture and music - as a member of the band KILLL, ARM, Juv and Single Unit.
400 square meters of fabrics with colorful patterns and shapes will hang from the ceiling. Electronic sounds are to be ejected from the speakers. Together, they will constitute the immersive installation OK that this summer will be exhibited in Sal Haakenaasen at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter. The artist is Are Mokkelbost (37).
