The Oslo based artist duo consisting of Veronica Molin Bruce and Karoline Bakken Lund is a cross disciplinary exchange that have worked together for four years. Bakken Lund is strongly rooted in and from textile - sculptural, in scenography and on bodies in performative narrative. Bruce has her background from conceptual and duration based art, contemporary dance and choreography — both floating through different roles and formats
Their common practice explores sculpture in particular. The meeting between their practices find a curiosity for materials and materiality, melting together different techniques, crafts and contexts, and play with perceptions and references. Bruce and Lund continuously work with different ways of working together — questioning what is means to collaborate, also in other constellations and projects.
