21st of August 9pm, Finissage
The Plantation Studio and Fotogalleriet have the honour of inviting you to the exhibition FOTOSTUDIO, taking place at Fotogalleriet 14th – 23rd of August. During this project period, the gallery will be turned into a photography studio and creative working space for the artists to explore their own practice in relation to a specific space and set of materials. The artists will all be responding to the same given materials, before photographing them in their constructed way. The selected images by each participating artist will then be presented at the finissage on Friday 21st of August at 7pm. These images will also be collected and printed as a publication, to be launched during the Fotobokfestival Oslo, September 2015.
