Galleri Riis

Oslo
Dirkjan van der Linde
Hair piece
August 26 – September 19, 2004

Galleri Riis will present, from August 26th through September 19th, three small, separate exhibitions of three artists, Stephanie Dumont, Andreas Eriksson and Dirkjan van der Linde, showing, respectively, works of sculpture and photography, painting and video.

For the second time, Galleri Riis is exhibiting the work of Dutch artist, Dirkjan van der Linde. Van der Linde received his education from the art academy in Breda, Holland, and the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Oslo. He defines his art primarily as sculpture, although the medium is often sound (such as in the work “Jump” shown at Galleri Riis in 1999), photography or video in combination with simple structures in MDF or other foundation materials. In the gallery’s project room his video loop, “Hair Piece”, is projected, and at the end of the entrance way, his video sculpture, “Private Eye”, is shown.
