For the occasion of Lime Time, the 5th issue of Giornata will be launched. Giornata is a periodic newspaper written, edited and published by Danish artist Sofie Amalie Andersen. She works in the fields of sculpture and painting and nourishes a particular interest in natural materials and historical artistic techniques. Visual gestures deriving herefrom, combined with an experimental and personal attitude towards writing, is the foundation of Giornata; a printed format wherein the artist herself, as well as her readers, are invited to examine their own position, shifting between being the
insider and outsider of the surrounding world.
Sofie Amalie Andersen (b. 1989) is educated from the Oslo Academy of Fine Art in 2018 and now lives and works in Bornholm, Denmark. Recent solo shows include One Work Only at Khartoum, Oslo, NO and Giornata at Akademirommet, Oslo, NO.
Opening: 18. Oktober, from 5pm-7pm (kl. 17-19).
Exhibition period: 18 Oktober - 28 November, 2018.
