Holy crap, do you feel the energy immediately in Gunvor Nervold Antonsen’s work. It’s big, it’s loud, it’s full of materials, it’s bold, it envelops you.
I wanted to feature this artist next, right after Virginia Melnyk, to compare the two styles. Although her work is also big and creates an environment, the effect is totally different. Her pieces are much simpler and cleaner, while Gunvor’s work creates this erratic, exciting space.
I love how there’s a sense of kid playfulness, but also a lot of aggression mixed together here. I want to be in one of these rooms full of his work while a whole bunch of loud music is blasting through speakers. I haven’t decided yet if it should be classical or old-style hardcore.
