The exhibition THE STUBBORN LIFE OF OBJECTS III marks the completion of Yuka Oyama’s artistic research fellowship at Oslo National Academy of Arts. Oyama has been exploring how and why certain domestic objects trigger our imagination, take on a life of their own, cause inconvenience – in short, make us behave differently.
Yuka Oyama’s artistic practice combines contemporary art, art jewellery, wearable sculpture, performance, film, and material based art. Based on this cross-disciplinary approach, she has established a method to explore the intermediary relations between a person and an object by constructing life-sized wearable objects that allow a person to become the object. In the course of her artistic research, Oyama has implemented cross-disciplinary research in cooperation with diverse groups of people – such as mime dancers and object theatre actors, the artist’s Karate colleagues, young adults and seniors, collectors of unusual things, as well as students from the Norwegian Theatre Academy and Oslo National Academy of Arts.
Opening: Friday May 5th from 18:00 – 21:00 Open: Saturday May 6th from 12:00 – 14:00
The placenta is a borderline organ between mother and fetus. It is a composite structure, sometimes described as a fetomaternal organ, because it develops from both the mother’s and the embryo’s tissues. It occupies a between-space inside the maternal space. The placenta is a transient organ. When its purpose is done the organ is discarded from the body.
