Morten Norbye Halvorsen
Morten Norbye Halvorsen was invited in Antwerp through a collaboration between AIR Antwerpen and Objectif Exhibition. During the summerstop the Objectif exhibition space becomes a studio for an international artist, with a residency in AIR Antwerpen.
Currently living and working in Paris. His works encompasses drawing, sound, sculpture, film, music, performance and photography. In “Re and Un” (part of the exhibition Repetition Island, Centre Pompidou, 2010) he recorded all activities unfolding in one 10hour day in the exhibition space, through four different vantage points. Every day he played the day before while recording the actual day and this for a whole week. Every recording starts with a script, read by Richard Foreman, appearing in a suit, where in the inside pocket the exhibition can fit.
