Studio Report #2: Søren Krag

10th–12th December 2021
Opening Thursday 9th December 6-8pm – all welcome!

Søren Krag produces artwork in a range of disciplines with a special focus on electronic and digital tools, using the limitations inherent in different methods as an aesthetic starting point. Recent works investigate digital Jacquard weaving; this research, in a feedback process, has also influenced Krag’s digital painting. His project for Kunsthall Oslo presents both tapestries and digital painting in other formats; some works were previously exhibited at Visningsrom USF in Bergen in October of this year, while others will be seen for the first time.
