August 2007

Electra is currently developing 27 Senses, a group exhibition for Kunstmuseet KUBE in Alesund, Norway.

The exhibition takes the life and work of artist Kurt Schwitters as a point of departure to investigate how ideas central to his work are manifesting themselves today across contemporary art and performance. With his eclectic practice spanning across painting, immersive installation, performance, typography, collage and sculpture, the work of Kurt Schwitters has influenced a wide range of contemporary artistic and performative practices. 27 Senses focuses on the time Kurt Schwitters spent in this region of Norway, in the 1930s, during which he began to create a Merzbau in a small hut on the island of Hjert¿ya, near the town of Molde. 27 Senses will take over Kunstmuseet KUBE with a series of actions and a three month exhibition.

The first stage of 27 Senses was a summer visit to the region by four artists who will be taking part in the show along with the show's curator Lina Dzuverovic and Electra's Irene Revell.
