In this year's edition of the Norwegian Art Yearbook, we look at different aspects of the production of art.
In "Artistic work process explained to adults", Ane Hjort Guttu writes that artistic work is as logical as scientific research processes, but without a general methodology .
Gustav Borgersen has followed artist Erlend Leirdal for two years in the preparations for exhibitions and decorations. Arne Skaug Olsen has interviewed this year's festival artist in Bergen, Joar Nango. He says that the background as a Sami and Norwegian, artist and architect has given him the freedom to define his project in the space between different discourses.
Rasmus Hungnes has visited Fellesverkstedet in Oslo. There, artists and other creative people get access to digital 3D tools. Ketil Nergaard has met some of the participants in the exhibition "A collective chaos", which talks about letting his art be subjected to a larger whole.
In "The Power of Material", Line Ulekleiv looks at trends from the art of the last decade where the material and tactile have been given renewed status. Arve Rød has met the founders of the artist-run gallery 1857, which helped to shape the Norwegian art scene of the 2010s.
