Sacred Waste
This exhibition combines oil paintings and sculptures based on the concept «sacred waste». The sculptures are made of metal objects that was found in the basement of a former monastery in Bergen (S.F.X.) as well as other waste material.
The development from waste to sacred waste seems to require a phase of the object (or the painting) being abandoned, unnoticed, and lost. To go from being an object of use to become a place – a place of silence, without any purpose or use. This transformation cannot be brought about consciously – it happens by accident – and therefore sacred waste challenges any system of ritual order.
This exhibition is situated in a movement between waste and sacred waste – in search of places of silence.

The ongoing performance Stilla moves from Nonneseter klosterkapell to Visningsrommet USF this week:

Sanne Frostensson (b. 1988, Sweden) works primarily with oil paintings and sculptures in different materials, as well as with writing and practices of silence. Her work revolves around the correlation between “inner” life and “outer” context (material, society). She lives in Bergen and has a Master’s degree in Fine Art (2021) and a Bachelor’s degree in Theology (2019).
