Support provided for the participation of artists Charlotte Nilsen (b.1969 in Mehamn, Norway, lives and works in Tromsø, Norway), Geir Tore Holm (b.1966 in Trømsø, Norway, lives and works in Skiptvet, Norway), Kristin Tårnesvik ((b.1964 in Tromsø, Norway, lives and works in Bergen, Norway) and curator Hilde Methi (b.1970 in Kirkenes, Norway, lives and works in Kirkenes, Norway) in the exhibition ‘Extreme Crafts’ at the Freies Museum in Berlin, Germany. According to curators Ulrike Solbrig, Jole Wilcke and Hilde Methi, the exhibition seeks to ‘bring together current approaches in art that deal with the ethical and aesthetic dimension of craft and its potency as an idea in art’. Nilsen, Holm and Taarnesvik will present works that, according to Methi, ‘connect to issues of ethnicity, the “Sámi situation”, and indigenousness in different ways, as well as dealing with complexities around use of nature and resources’.  All of the artists will participate in lectures and discussions during the opening weekend of the exhibition. Other participating artists include Yvette Brackman, Kristinn G. Hardarson, Suwan Laimanee and Field Work. Curator: Ulrike Solbrig and Jole Wilcke, curators, and co-curator Hilde Methi, for Extreme Crafts, Freies Museum, Berlin, Germany.
