Mutations presents an installation composed of a series of objects and video work at Telemark Kunstsenter. The exhibition explores the intersection of ecological, political, cultural and personal factors and how contemporary mutations within these are changing the human condition. As conversation in the digital space enters the physical environment, it begins to mutate our collective bodies, reshaping our minds and actions. This idea is presented in the exhibition in the form of familiar items: mass-produced furniture, shower curtains, football scarves, towels. Here these domestic objects are stripped of their familiarity, here they become mutants. Their forms and usual intent is changed: they are a product of our own shifting present.
