For The Great Monster Dada Shows last day, Henie Onstad has put together a Dada-finissage.
Marthe Ramm Fortun has set up a series of commissioned performances for “The Big Bad Dada Show” as the artist herself calls the exhibition. Dada women have long been a source of inspiration in her work, including the use of text and performative readings, which allow for improvisation and physical movement such as climbing and balance. For Henie Onstad's exhibition, Ramm Fortun has produced the work Ciel/ Sjel (2019), which looks at the concept of linguistic commandment and what it means to be both the carrier of a message and the message itself.
