Entrée is completing our one-year cinema program by screening two films by Oslo-based artist Mai Hofstad Gunnes. In her artistic practice involving 16mm film, video installations, collage and photography, Mai Hofstad Gunnes reflect on fundamental mechanisms in our associative processes and how we unconsciously put together ideas and images based on our experiences, surroundings and historical context. Her works show an interest in how contemporary channels of communication distort existing power structures and possibly pervert historical ideal types. Consequently, by looking at these developments from a historical, psychoanalytical and feminist perspective, she seeks to investigate the underlying potential in our time. Mai Hofstad Gunnes (b.1977, Lørenskog, Norway) studied at Universität der Kunste, Berlin, CCA Kitakyushu, Japan, and Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Norway, where she received her MFA in 2004. Solo exhibitions include B. The Second Letter at Baltic 39, Gateshead/Newcastle (UK); Proverbs for Ouroborosat Trondheim Art Museum (NO); Baby Snakes Hatching. Ruins.Ruins at UKS, Young Artists’ Society, Oslo (NO); Bike and Bolex at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (BEL), and A shape of love you can never imagine at Oslo Kunstforening (NO).
