We have the pleasure of welcoming you to Aurora Passero's first solo exhibition at Galleri Haaken. Critically acclaimed Aurora Passero (b. 1984) is best known for her monumental installations that lie in the field between sculpture and painting. Passero works site-specifically and composes the singular works in relation to each other and to the architecture they are situated in.

Included in the current exhibition Channel Units are new, larger and smaller works in woven and coloured nylon, as well as a group of sculptures, Batteries, in pale white gypsum. The exhibition title itself points - in an open manner - to different readings, but could as an example be translated as “passages between independent units”. The assembly of words suggests a form of poetic anarchism, which also reflects several aspects of Passero's working process. She consistently and freely digs in to her surroundings and is stimulated by an eclectic blend of impressions. Among inspirations in the art wold, Franz West and Wolfgang Tillmanns are mentioned.

In extension of the exhibition Channel Units, Aurora Passero is publishing her second artist book. Throughout the book, which mainly consists of Passero's own photography, the audience is given a chance to follow the artist's constantly investigating look.

Aurora Passero (b. 1984) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. She studied at the National Academy of Visual Arts in Oslo and at the Glasgow School of Art. Latest exhibitions include Hengende Hager / Hanging Gardens, Grenland Kunsthall, NN-A, NN-A, NN-A, Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Europe, Europe, Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Young Techno, La Confection Ideale, Tourcoing, Tusen Tråder / A Throusand Threads, Lillehammer Kunstmuseum, Untitled Art Fair Miami, Norwegian Sculpture Biennial, Vigeland Museet, 24 Spaces / represented by 1857, Malmö Konsthall, I tråd med tiden, Haugar Vestfold Kunstmuseum, Ivory Tactics, Kunstnerforbundet and Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012.


Vi har har gleden av å ønske velkommen til Aurora Passeros første separatutstilling i Galleri Haaken. Kritikerroste Aurora Passero(f 1984) er best kjent for sine monumentale installasjoner som befinner seg i sjiktet mellom skulptur og maleri. Passero arbeider stedsspesifikt der de enkelte arbeidene komponeres i forhold til hverandre og arkitekturen.

Inkludert i den aktuelle utstillingen Channel Units er nye, større og mindre, arbeider i vevd og farget nylon, samt en gruppe skulpturer, Batteries, i blek, hvit gips. Selve utstillingstittelen står som en åpen føring for forskjellige lesninger, men kan, som et eksempel, oversettes til "passasjer mellom selvstendige enheter". Ordenes sammenstilling gir hentydninger til en form for poetisk anarkisme, noe som gjenspeiles i flere sider av Passeros arbeidsprosess. Hun forsyner seg gjennomgående fritt fra sine omgivelser og lar seg stimulere av en eklektisk blanding av inntrykk. Blant inspirasjon på kunstscenen nevnes blant annet Franz West og Wolfgang Tillmanns.

I forlengelse av utstillingen Channel Units utgir Aurora Passero sin andre Artist Book. Gjennom boken, som i all hovedsak består av Passeros egne fotografier, gis publikum mulighet til å følge kunstnerens blikk slik det alltid søker undersøkende omkring.

Aurora Passero (1984) bor og jobber i Oslo, Norge. Hun har studert ved Kunsthøyskolen i Oslo og Glasgow School of Art. Siste utstillinger inkluderer Hengende Hager, Grenland Kunsthall, NN-A, NN-A, NN-A, Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst, Europe, Europe, Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst, Young Techno, La Confection Ideale, Tourcoing, Tusen Tråder, Lillehammer Kunstmuseum, Untitled Art Fair Miami, Norsk Skulptur Biennale, Vigeland Museet, 24 Spaces/ representert av 1857, Malmö Konsthall, I Tråd Med Tiden, Haugar Vestfold Kunstmuseum, Ivory Tactics, Kunstnerforbundet og Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012
