The summer of 2015 I crossed the North Atlantic together with artist Janne Kruse sailing from Aarhus Denmark via The Shetlands, The Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland to Canada as crew onboard the two sailboats SY Roxy and SY Firefly. The Galleri F15 exhibition space in Jeløya outside Moss overlooks the ocean. We each had our own floor. I showed works made before, during and after the journey in five different rooms on the upper floor. The exhibtion was curated by Maria C. Havstam. A special thanks to the dedicated technician crew at F15 and and Will Oldham for letting me use Sapele from his record Seafarers Music in the video installation. All photo documentation by Vegard Kleven. With the exhibition I published the book The Fear of Icebergs at Night, with drawings and paintings on paper rendered in full size. Design by Marie Payan.
