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 7 – Sunday 10 July «Beethoven»
The 2022 Rosendal Chamber Music Festival celebrates the music of Ludwig van Beethoven in the beautiful and remote setting of Norway’s west coast fjords. Founder and Artistic Director, Leif Ove Andsnes, is joined by over twenty guest artists and speakers who will offer audiences a glimpse into the composer’s diverse world.
Joining Leif Ove Andsnes on stage from 7 - 10 July are four fellow pianists - Vikingur Ólafsson, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Enrico Pace and Sveinung Bjelland - as well as Dorothea Röschmann and Hilde Haraldsen Sveen (soprano), Quatour Van Kuijk, Alina Ibragimova and Antje Weithaas (violin), Henninge Landaas (viola), Christian Poltéra and Tanja Tetzlaff (cello), Callum Hay Jennings (double bass), Håkon Asheim (Hardanger fiddle), Ingrid Søfteland Neset (flute), Bjørn Nyman (clarinet), Sebastian Stevensson (bassoon), Ragnhild Lothe (horn) and lecturers Jan Swafford, Gunilla Sussmann and Gunnar Danbolt. The music from our time will be represented by two generations of playful and fascinating personalities from Western Norway, composer Ketil Hvoslef and composer/saxophonist Marius Neset, whilst this year’s exhibition is dedicated to Norwegian artist Olav Christopher Jenssen.
Rosendal Chamber Music Festival in cooperation with the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation.Read more
