Olav Christopher Jenssen (1954-) lives and works in Germany, and today he is quite as much a part of the German art world as the Norwegian. He began his career painting figurative pictures, but during the 1980s he created paintings that oscillate between figurative and non-figurative images, without being either or. Neither is he a romantic with a desire to paint the inexpressible, but an artist who is interested in what, in fact, can be conveyed in colour and form, rhythm and brushwork. This said, he also explores the limits of what can be expressed, and his artistic production of graphics, drawings, paintings, relief work and installations throw light on the process that carries expression. Primarily, this takes place on the surface, but disappears into what seems like deep space located far away or far below.Read more

Rosendal Chamber Music Festival Thursday 5 – Sunday 8 August «From my homeland»
This year’s festival focus is on the music of Antonin Dvořák. Over four days, Leif Ove Andsnes and guest artists will explore the great Czech composer’s works and look at how the national romantic movement of the period influenced both Dvořák and his contemporaries. Special tribute will also be paid to King of tango, Astor Piazzolla, in the 100th anniversary year.
Guest artists include Zlata Chochieva and Joachim Carr (piano), Josef Špaček, Johan Dalene and Daniela Braun (violin), Sheku Kanneh-Mason (cello), Arnulf Ballhorn (double bass), the Dover String Quartet and Per Arne Glorvigen (bandoneon). Joining them on stage are Norwegian composer / cellist Lene Grenager and 16 musicians from the "Konstknekt Project” - an inspirational initiative which gives young Norwegian musicians the opportunity to collaborate with members of the Berlin Philharmonic.
The full programme and ticket sales will be announced shortly.
