KjARTtan Slettemark (1932-2008) är en av Nordens mest välkända, älskade och utskällda konstnärer. Under ett halvt sekel, var han en aktiv drivande kraft inom den skandinaviska konstscenen. Slettemark drog inte någon skiljelinje mellan konsten och livet. Så som den speciella stavningen av hans förnamn indikerar, var konsten en del av honom själv. Som pionjär inom flera områden var han en av de första nordiska konstnärer som arbetade med performance och aktivism. För Slettemark var konsten viktigare än något annat och under hela sitt liv kämpade han för konstens och konstnärens rätt till yttrandefrihet. Utställningen Konsten att vara konst är sammanställd av Museet for samtidskunst i Oslo och är den första stora retrospektiv som gjorts sedan konstnären gick bort 2008.Nu kommer utställningen till Sverige, där Kjartan levde och verkade under många år, för att visas på Kulturhuset Stadsteatern. Vi får se hans verk från de första teckningarna han skapade i Naustdal till de sista verken han producerade i Stockholm. Det går att dela in Kjartan Slettemarks konst i två olika perioder. Vändpunkten kom runt slutet av 1970-talet. Från att han tidigare utmärkts för att vara en anti-auktoritär fighter som framförallt fokuserade på en yttre fiende, gick han nu gradvis över till att placera sig själv i centrum för sin konst, med verk av en mer introspektiv karaktär. Istället för att kritisera systemet och makten intog hans konst en mer försonande hållning. Konstens främsta funktion var nu inte längre att kritisera utan att hela eller bota. Evil heart fears art. Genom hela sitt konstnärskap använde sig Slettemark av konsten för att uppnå frihet både på en konstnärlig och en individuell nivå. Konsten influerade livet och livet påverkade konsten. Men båda är underordnade jagets autonomi. Alla de tår han trampade på och de otaliga identiteter han iklädde sig, ger en tydlig bild av individens frihet att skapa sig själv. Samtidigt som Slettemarks uttryck och strategier förändrades genom åren, framstår det övergripande målet om att utplåna det fasta jaget som konstant.

Candy Kennel Dog Walk

I anslutning till vernissagen den 14 juni har ett flertal konstnärer bjudits in att delta i en ”hundpromenad” arrangerad av det konstnärsdrivna galleriet Candyland i samproduktion med Kjartanistan. Det är en hyllning till Kjartan Slettemarks pudelperformance, en ”Candy Kennel Dog Walk” – antirasistisk, med blandade raser. Hyllningsparaden anländer ca kl 14.00 till Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, Galleri 5.

Festspillene og samtidsmusikkfestivalen Borealis har i gjensidig begeistring innledet et samarbeid. Borealis vil bidra med innslag til Festspillene og Festspillene vil bidra til Borealis i årene fremover. Det er i denne anledning Borealis presenterer verdenspremiere for ny mørk støytrio: Kjartan Slettemark (f. 1932) er en kjent norsk politisk kunstner som sa opp det norske statsborgerskapet sitt i 1966. Han lager mørk maskerade sammen med publikum. Kjetil Manheim var trommeslager i det legendariske norske black metal-bandet Mayhem (1983–). Lasse Marhaug står for det beste innen norsk noise i dag og syr spikermatter for anledningen. Det nyoppstartede samtidsensemblet Bergen Music Pool forsøker å gjøre stemningen litt lysere med slagere fra nåtiden. Dirigent: Manuel Nawry.

Satelitt Borealis er kuratert av Borealisfestivalen. Samtidsmusikkfestivalen finner sted 11.–18. mars 2007. Festspillene er medarrangør av konserten med Dansk Radiokor under Borealis 12. mars 2007. Program: Nono, Bent Sørensen, Gabrieli og Castiglioni.

The world premiere for a dark noise trio: Kjartan Slettemark (1932) is a well-known Norwegian political artist who renounced his Norwegian nationality in 1966. He makes a dark masquerade along with the audience. Kjetil Manheim was the drummer in the legendary Norwegian black metal band Mayhem (1983–). Lasse Marhaug is at the forefront of today’s Norwegian noise, and is sewing a bed of nails for the occasion. The newly-started contemporary ensemble Bergen Music Pool aims to lighten the mood with current hits. Conductor: Manuel Nawry.
