Immediate settings are the point of departure for the works of Ådlandsvik and Müller. One of these settings is their ongoing collabora- tion, thus they often stage their working relationship and their production. For their recent exhibition at MELK in Oslo, they mixed a series of cock- tails on canvases while cutting out parts from each other’s evening suits. We came on vacation by mistake is a photo- graphic document of this ironical and self-destructive evening performance.
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.
