NEWS During the dark season in Umeå, Geir Tore Holm presents a work of light in the Bildmuseet entrance hall. He's interested in household management and sustainable lifestyles, and his work refers to two conditions that have been of great significance for humans' survival in the North - reindeer meat and light.
The newly-created work Fughetta is inspired by the Baroque and consists of five reindeer carcasses moulded from epoxy, merged together into a lighting fixture. The carcasses refer to the food still-lifes of the Baroque, and the title Fughetta refers to a little fugue, a composition technique which reached its peak during the same era.
Geir Tore Holm (b. 1966) lives and works in Skiptvet, Norway. He works on socially involved art in a broad spectrum of media. He is also a fellow at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet with support from Umeå 2014 and Nordic Culture Point.
