LevArt presents a new performance by Karianne Stensland at Levanger Stadium,

26 April 1:00 PM

Scene for Storholt, Stenshjemmet, Stensen, Sjøbrend and Stensland. And Knut Knudsen.*

Knudsen was here. Storholt, Stenshjemmet, Stensen and Sjøbrend were here. Even Eric Heiden was here. Biking. Skating. Around and around they went. Winners, losers, power and speed. Now it’s Stensland’s turn on the track, mating art with sport. Will she be able to do it? The race is over. Legendary Levanger Stadium is about to become a different place. The stadium will be converted into a park, a park to catch one’s breath; where hustle and bustle are pushed aside and people can come to their senses again.

With this performance, Stensland continues her exploration of artistic possibilities at Levanger Stadium. Her first performance and video work, “Piece for Labour and Art”, was presented in spring of 2012. This year’s performance is “Scene for Storholt, Stenshjemmet, Stensen, Sjøbrend and Stensland. And Knut Knudsen.” Here, too, Stensland’s starting point is site-specific, based on the physical changes that have taken place since last time in connection with the planned park facility. The third and final performance in this series will take place in 2014.

Stensland has an MFA from the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. She has spent a year studying at the St. Petersburg State Theatre Arts Academy, and integrates her experiences in the visual arts and the theatre with her own artistic work. Stensland is currently writing a book and participating in the Norwegian Sculpture Biennial 2013.

*Storholt, Stenshjemmet, Stensen and Sjøbrend were Norway’s legendary “four S-es” (sounding like “four aces” in Norwegian) of skating during the 1970s and 80s. Knut Knudsen is a now-retired, also legendary, racing cyclist from Levanger.
