---------------------------------------------------------

In this exhibition Jason Havneraas will take up residence in Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst for two weeks prior to the opening and curate a selection of his works from 2002 to the present.
 
The artist’s starting point is his background growing up in Anthroposophical Camphill communities in Britain and his further contact with similar places in Norway since moving there in 2004. Camphill is a worldwide organisation of inclusive communities inspired by the Anthroposophical philosophy of Rudolph Steiner, where mentally handicapped people live together with their ‘co-workers’, in shared households.
 
Starting with simple large format portraits of people living in the communities, Havneraas has slowly moved towards a more constructed view of his past where he recreates his childhood memories of plays and festivals by working together with those performing the same rituals in the present, and creating large format photographic tableaux and video with the results of this relationship.
 
Alongside these long term works the artist will present part of a new series of portraits where he has taken one of the defining images of his childhood, ‘the Angel’, a figure present in almost every play he saw and made portraits of male friends and acquaintances of a similar age to himself wearing a costume used to represent angels in those plays.
 
-------------------------------------

I Jason Havneraas kunstneriske arbeid med fotografi, video og performance inntar han en humanistisk tilnærming til livet. Havneraas reflekterer over sin oppvekst i antroposofiske miljøer. Ved å engasjere grupper av mennesker som bor og arbeider sammen for idealistiske grunner, iscenesetter han egne minner fra fortiden. Skuespill og festivaler fra hans barndomsverden blir påtvunget hans nåværende bekjente. Slik forenes tilværelsenes dype usikkerhet og følelsen av uro i vår tid, med en naiv følelse av at hvis vi bare satte oss ned og snakket om det, ville alt være i orden.
