THIEF ART SPACE

THIEF Art Space presents the work of today’s emerging contemporary artists you should most definitely discover. Whether through paintings, sculptures, grafitti, installations, photographs and performance art, each artist illuminates the complexity of the self with a unique and bold vision.
 
Our THIEF Art Space series expose the raw talent of some of our favorite artists who will make a proper mark on the current art scene. A few are already immediately recognizable artists, while some are just emerging, but are well on their way to become widely recognized household names.
THIEF ART SPACE

Where: 3rd floor @THE THIEF
When: December 13th – January 23rd (Artist talk 13/12 kl 18:00)

——————-

With her recent work, Benedicte explores the strength
within the feminine and the masculine. Challenging our
predisposed notions of differences and boundaries that
limit the scope of our perceptions. It is in the eye of the
beholder to decipher the interpretation presented.

Having portrayed “Arnold and Muscles” in her last
exhibition, Benedicte now explores the female so-called
idols of the past and present: Kim Kardashian,
Yayoi Kusama, Bonnie Parker, Venus and Diana. Whereas
Benedicte previously has shown how masculine strength
is connected to his muscles, she now shows the
perception of women as both makers and products of
our time.

Both notions of men and women being equally
objectifying.

Benedicte continues to play with her collages of well
known photographs and iconic symbols. She daringly
personalizes this, using techniques from classic art to
modern technology, drawing from her experience in
digital graphic art and film-making.
The works are presented in a solid and bold manner
where collages are covered in deep, glossy varnish.
Matching the extravaganza of her models, each piece
will come in an exclusive first series decorated by
Juvelér Langaard, Norway’s premier Jeweler,
Sinful, bordering on decadent, but yet in lovable
masculine femininity.

NANCY BUNDT

Hvem: Nancy Bundt
Hva: PRINCE – Purple Rain
Hvor: THIEF BAR | 2. etasje | 3. etasje
Når: 26.april – 21.aug

Nancy Bundt, an American photojournalist who has been living in Norway for the last 25 years, was most well-known in America for being the official photographer for Prince’s “Purple Rain” Tour.

You can see most of these photographs at THE THIEF from April 26-Aug 29.
captured Prince during a 1984 concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis, (the site of the Purple Rain movie) to celebrate his 26th birthday, just before he embarked on his Purple Rain Tour.

These photographs are images of a younger Prince, a guy just beginning his career, discovering himself as a musician and then rocketing to pop-star fame. Many of these rare photographs have never been seen. Some were in the newest re-release of the Purple Rain Deluxe expanded edition.

In one of the iconic photos by Bundt, we see the superstar wearing a scarf, his eyes closed, with a blue hue on his eyelids, awash in purple light.

Bundt, having worked internationally for many Norwegian magazines, companies and publishers has been on assignment in over 85 countries and is most happy living near Oslo.

Photographs in lobby, 2nd foor and 3rd foor.

OLAV STUBBERUD

What: Photo exhibition – The Nobel Prize Concert
Where: 3rd floor at THE THIEF
When: January 25th – April 3rd

Olav Stubberud har de siste årene turnert med verdens største artister, som blant annet Justin Bieber, G-eazy, Chainsmokers, Kygo og fotografert en rekke andre.
Og har nå vært hus fotografen til Nobels Fredspris Konserten nå i 3 år. Og dette er det vi skal nå få et innblikk i.
Som et av verdens største og mest prestisjetunge eventer, har Nobels Fredspris Konserten hatt en rekke kjente fjes som har stått sammen på scenen om fred (mer om konserten her – http://nobelpeaceprizeconcert.com/).
Dette blir en unik utstilling der vi får se ekslusive bilder rundt konserten, som vi har gleden av å få henge i 2 måneder i 3. etasje på The Thief.

«Det er en ære å få presentere offisielle og eksklusive bilder fra et event som dette. Jeg har fått vist noe tidligere, men det å få satt sammen det beste fra mine år med konserten,
og få vist det frem på denne måten er sykt fett. Og det å få vist den over en så lang periode, håper jeg alle tar seg tid for å sjekke ut! Takk til THE THIEF, Gyro, Wetouch imagework og Spitting Image. «
