fotokunst lansering piQmo

Presentasjon fotografer; del 2

8 mars 2016

«Rolling around each other, two bodies become one. Two separate individuals crossing over and into the other´s personal space, forming a working unity. This action leaves a mark on the world, and through the use of photographic film, this mark becomes physical and recorded as a permanent imprint. The photographs in this series are made as photograms, photographs made without a camera, where it is the shadow of the subjects that leaves it´s mark on the analogue film. The image is made as two original
pictures collaged together, showing the intertwined lovers embracing across the borders of the picture frame. 
The shadow of something, a symbol of affection and a show of love creeping up to you in your intimate space. The proof that something was there and a presence frozen in mid stride captured on photographic film as a physical mark and permanent imprint.»    

Stig Marlon Weston
Stig Marlon Weston (1974)  

Born and based in Oslo, Stig Marlon Weston studied at Strømmen and at Stokmarknes school of photography, before starting a career as professional photographer doing reportage, portraits, and themed illustration assignments. Intrigued by the philosophical aspects of photography and alternative ways of making his images, he has gradually turned his focus towards conceptually based artistic work.

Interested in how truth and reality can be perceived in a more direct way than our unconscious mode of automatic interpretation allows, Weston works with the photographic processes to capture an unsullied view of the world.

Stig Marlon Weston has participated in both the Norwegian State Autumn Exhibition (Høstutstillingen) and the National Regional exhibitions as well as exhibitions abroad, won several awards and also works as a curator and workshop teacher.

Presentasjon fotografer; del 1

7 mars 2016

En knapp uke igjen! Torsdag 10 mars blir det vernissage i på den svenske ambassadørens residens i Oslo, og vi vil gjerne presentere piQmo sine norske fotografer nå i dagene før lanseringsfesten. Først ut er Maria Prestmo, Dag Eivind Thorenfeldt og Marianne Bjørnmyr.


Maria Prestmo (1976)

Skjermbilde 2016-02-02 kl. 11.56.32Maria Prestmo is a Bergen-based photographer whose projects often reside in the realms between figuration and abstraction, between reality and dreams. In this regard her approach to photography is more similar to that of a painter. She also frequently collaborates with painter Marie Storaas as the artist duo “P.S”. Her passion for photography has followed her all the way through childhood, youth and her nine years of academic education. The camera has become her way of studying human behaviour and exploring different identities.

Her work has been exhibited in galleries and festivals; Banksmidja Galleri (Voss), Hydrogenfabrikken Kunsthall (Fredrikstad), Hardanger Musikkfest (Lofthus), B-Open (Bergen) and the old Astrup Fearnley Museet (Oslo) among others. March 2016 she is having her first solo show at Galleri Ramfjord (Oslo).


Thorenfeldt_padda_piqmo_ver2Dag Eivind Thorenfeldt (1961)

Well known and acclaimed Norwegian portrait photographer and a pronounced profile in media. After decades as one of the most sought after photographers, he and his wife left Oslo and the city life looking for a different way of life on a farm growing high quality organic vegetables for high end restaurants. Photography is still a huge part of his life, but from a completely different perspective. Nature, wildlife and his family are in focus, however he still photographs with the edge, humour and playfulness he is known for.

He has held numerous exhibitions through the years.


Marianne Bjørnmyr (1986)

Marianne Bjørnmyr lives and works in London, where she received her MA in Photography from London College of Communication in 2012. Her photographic practice is concerned around our perception of the photograph’s approach to reality; through her research she explores the phenomena of myth, and the photograph’s role in conveying objects and surroundings is set up against our understanding, interpretation and generated perception of imagery.

Marianne’s work has previously been exhibited internationally in galleries like the Foto8 Gallery, The Royal Shakespeare Company, Galleri Ramfjord and The AOP gallery, and she has earlier been awarded the Daniel Blau’s 5 under 30, First Prize at Juvenarte and the Jansons Scholarship amongst others.
