Jason Havneraas plays with the border between reality and fiction through the use of photography and video, while his work remains deeply influenced by his child- hood and upbringing in a Rudolf Steiner influenced society (Camphill-community) in England. The work Friday, Saturday and Sunday comes from this lifelong involvement with Camphill community. Although he still works with these themes, his work has become much more personal and self-reflective since he moved to Norway in 2004.
The Relief Fund for Visual Artists (BKH) was created by the Norwegian Parliament in connection with the law on art purchases of 1948 (Statute of November 4. 1948, Fee on Sale of Visual Art a.o.). This law states that the buyer of art shall pay a fee of 5% in addition to the price, provided the price is higher than 2000 NOK. The art dealer shall collect the fee and send it to BKH, which then returns the funds to the artists of Norway in the form of grants and scholarships for the new production of art. Each buyer will be contacted directly after purchase. 5% of the price will be billed after purchase together with an agreed shipping fee.
