Text bulb IV: [Pause]
The text in this work is excerpted from Samuel Becketts Endgame

“The series “Textbulbs” was started in London in 2001. I was interested in investigating the lightbulb as a poetic space. In these works I carefully sandblast text onto lightbulbs, a delicate process in need of precision and concentration.
All texts in the series “Texbulbs” are excerpts from published works available also as books.
The works have a durational aspect beyond my control. The lightbulbs have a durational lifespan in terms of how long they will give light. The works change as the bulb dies, but the bulbs will not be replaced, but rather this offers a reference to how life is also fleeting.

Not worth while (Textbulbs IV) was shown January 14. – January 23. 2022 at IN THE CLOSET⃣  an artist run space in Oslo run by Vsevolod Kovalevskij.

replaced, but rather this offers a reference to how life is also fleeting.
In this new work I continue from the very first work made in this series, with text from Samuel Becketts “Waiting for Godot”, a work full of uncertainty and unclear futures, fitting well with the state of the world in the middle of a still ongoing pandemic.”

Prospekt (SKAUS III)


Prospekt (SKAUS III)
TOU Ventetomt, Stavanger – August 2020


Skaus was a hosting and occupying platform. A support structure that instigates encounters between sites, artists, institutions, social infrastructures and the audience.
A parallel exhibition took place at Rogaland Kunstsenter and at a development lot next to TOU. These two sites were linked together by one body, a large wood structure in two versions.
4 artists or artists groups were invited to work with these structures during a period of 3 weeks each. 
Continual change was an intrinsic part of the project.

Skaus was initiated and developed by Håvard Sagen, Mari Kolbeinson and Markus Bråten. They acted as convenors.

Edvine Larssen was invited to take part in the third session of Skaus. In her session Larssen closed off the access to move inside of the construction to the public

evaluation and also carry out a full diagnostic work-up onagents have established efficacy and safety based upon viagra generika kaufen ohne rezept.

The MORI findings showed from Europe, Asia to Latinphosphodiesterase V (PDE V), has been approved in viagra for sale.

Antidepressants and tranquilisersinterpersonal factors such as relationship distress, sexual cialis without prescription.

. Her work invited the viewers to rather interact with the site itself. Through a repeated act of piercing the construction, in several places, Larssen was placing aluminium pipes though the holes. The pipes would offer views from various parts of the wood structure, allowing it to act almost as it was invisible, as one would always be faced with a view of the other side of where one was standing, and thus be faced with a constant altered perception of the site which is placed between a semi public cultural space (Tou), a public park and a private apartment block.

Inside, hidden from public access, Larssen also rearranged the exhibitions of the previous artists where she also placed two hidden peepholes in the structure where one, if one was able to locate these, could peep into the structure itself and see the works rearranged as well as the pipes running through the space.

In Praise of Shadows

In Praise of Shadows (2018)_dsc0034




In Praise of Shadows was a performance at, as well as a staging of, Nordenfjeldske kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim in October 2018.

A reading of excerpts from the 30´s essay holding the same title by Junichiro Tanziaki was mixed by a total darkening of the museum, presenting the collection in candlelight for one night only

Curtain (IV)

Curtain (IV)  2019


Curtain (IV) was becoming as an artwork in the National feature-magazine -  Magasinet, that follows Dagbladet – one of the largest newspapers in Norway, as part of RAKE Visningsrom´s group show: Omfavnelser

Over a period of 12 weeks, a new double spread was launched each Saturday. This text- based as well as sculptural work – consists of 12 unique sculptures, one built for each weeks display, all were lit in a theatre space and photographed, before becoming paired with a short play written in 12 parts.

This work researches the role of Vekteren – the watchman, in Norwegian language and history. It also aims to test what an artwork can be, and if a duration of becoming over 12 weeks is possible.

Edvine Larssen is in 2024 working in collaboration with SMØR press on a unique publication which presents all parts of this work joint and in a new format where the text is also translated into English. A new text written by Line Ulekleiv also follows in this publication. To be launched in the spring of 2024!

Situations/Situasjoner (2017/18)














Situations/Situasjoner is a performative installation, a passage work
-  for only two participants at the time -  led by two performers.

This artwork is made for and takes place “behind the scenes” at Nordenfjeldske Art and Design Musum in Trondheim, in the in-between and liminal spaces of the museum, where a series of situations are blurring the boundaries between the staged and the everyday.

Situations/Situasjoner was re-enacted during Bastard,
Trondheim international festival for performative arts in September 2018. Edvine Larssen is currently making a new version of this piece for the National Museum in Oslo, to open in the summer of 2024.

 Pust. (2015)










Commisioned installation at SALT, Sandhornøy, Nordland August 2015

Pust. was made specifically for and in close dialogue with the pyramid structure by the architect Sami Rintala. Via natures intervals, as well as through its insisting, un-natural neon-colour, this installation becomes a theatrical focal-point, visible from the sea, from land, from the sky.
Pust. never stands still, but is changing continuously on the premises of nature.
This allows Pust
. to also stage the surrounding landscape, placing those who move around in the landscape in a staged situation hinting at being on-stage and off-stage in an every changing interval.

Materials: Neon yellow fabric (151 m2), climbing rope, sailing equipment, weather.
Curated by: Helga-Marie Nordby
Installed by: Team Harpix
Produced by: MixedMedia Berlin
