Interstice

Welcome to experience the live-installations by MA students from Interior Architecture & Furniture Design and Choreography.

Interstice in architecture may refer to the small-undefined gaps between the structures that are nor inside or outside. Or as in medicine, interstice may be the space between individual cells. Interstitial arts suggest works that fall in between existing categories of disciplines or genres. We have used the theme of interstice as the entry point to investigate the particularities of spaces between bodies, people and things, things and things and between two professions.

The presented works are studio-based investigations springing out of a 3-week joint workshop with the two respective disciplines. The course has been led by professors Anne Grete Eriksen and Toni Kauppila.

Kjøkkenhåndkle med hæl

Velkommen til åpning i Rådhusgalleriet 18. januar. Utstillingen åpnes av Inga Marte Thorkildsen, byråd for eldre, helse og sosiale tjenester i Oslo kl 14.00 etterfulgt av et kaffeslabberas.

En dag strikket hun et hvitt bomullshåndkle i rutemønster og midt i håndkledet felte hun inn en sokkehæl. Minnene om helfellingen satt i hendene hennes selv etter hukommelsen hadde forsvunnet...

“Kjøkkenhåndkle med hæl” presenterer hvordan studentene i samarbeid med Sykehjemsetaten har arbeidet med utfordringer rundt bosituasjonen for demente. Med mennesket som utgangspunkt har de tatt frem konsepter som med enkle grep kan gjøre store endringer. Kan vi utforme rom som øker livskvalitet?

Åpningstider: 09:00 - 18:00 · Rådhusplassen 1, 0037 OSLO · Inngang fra sjøsiden

Daily Practice Exhibition, autumn 2015

For the Open School Day the internal Daily Practices of the students are shared. Over 1000 pieces of work are on display!

Daily Practice is a common practice-based research platform for all students. Each student conducts a piece of professional investigations on the given theme on a daily basis and shares them in communal forum. Each semester each student produces ca 100 studies for this extensive and on-goingly growing archive of discipline specify knowledge. The objective is twofold, on one hand to drill the professional design practices and the in-depth skills and on the other hand to fertilize our community's peer-to-peer learning. At the end of each semester, we put some the works on display.

Lansering av Ellen Klingebergs bok Interiørarkitektur

Nest etter klærne på kroppen er interiøret det rommet som er oss nærmest. Interiørarkitektur handler om å forme rom for å fylle deres funksjonelles og estetiske behov. Arne Kormo kalte det romkunst.

Etter mange års undervisning i faget, har Ellen Klingeberg samlet de mest sentrale tekstene om faget fra inn- og utland, både klassiske og nyskrevne. I sum er det blitt den første samlingen teoretiske tekster om interiørakitektur utgitt på norsk. Det er en bok for alle med interesse for hva som former rommene omkring oss og hvordan de former oss.

Program:
Velkommen ved rektor Jørn Mortensen,
Presentasjon v/bokens redaktør Ellen S. Klingenberg
Kommentar v/professor Toni Kauppila, programansvarlig studiet i interiørarkitektur og møbeldesign ved Kunsthøgskolen

Tama Arts University's 80th anniversary event in Tokyo

Professor Kauppila represented KHiO in the Tama Arts University's festivities this week. KHiO is one of the 18 top art and design schools in the world that partner with Tama. Even though the mutual agreement was signed only last year, the exchange activities are already well on the way.

As a pilot for our collaboration, Associate Professor Haru Hamada became a guest professor for KHiO for one semester. This term the first Norwegian student from the Interior and Furniture programme is in exchange in Tokyo, and next autumn the first Tama student will enter KHiO. Also the coming spring semester the MA1 students will participate in a joint workshop in Tama.
