Bjørn Melhus. Exhibition on the Occasion of the Publication of a Book by Stiftung Niedersachsen

29. May 2019 – 01. September 2019
Sprengel Museum HannoverSprengel Museum Hannover
In his many years of his career as an artist, Bjørn Melhus has developed a singular position within video art, which above all expands the possibilities of cinema and television reception. In his mostly narrative films, videos and installations, he re-contextualises well-known motifs, themes and strategies of the mass media through the fragmentation of image and sound. His multiple, often tragicomic role plays reveal mechanisms of commercialisation and rebel against simplification and global cultural uniformity.

Melhus studied at Braunschweig University of Art in the 1990s and was awarded the Sprengel Prize of the Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung in 2001. Since 2003 he has been teaching as Professor for Visual Arts / Virtual Realities at the Kunsthochschule in Kassel.

Opening: Tuesday, 28.5.2019, 6.30 p.m.
