About

K-LAB is an artist run, international, interdisciplinary and site-specific platform established in 2007. Situated in Nevelsfjord at Kjerringøy in Bodø, Norway, above the polar circle, 67°49’ N and 14º 89’ E. The Biennale is an interdisciplinary arena where ecology and a mindful interaction with nature is explored. The work is to explore and interact with place and the natural and biodegradable materials available and investigate, transform, alter, reflect or commune with these on site. The activities should not contain any artificial materials and be made in mindful ways with respect for the place and its inhabitants, creatures great and small. The work will integrate or be temporary and gradually decompose.

Local Information

K-LAB is an artist run, international, interdisciplinary and site-specific platform established in 2007. Situated in Nevelsfjord at Kjerringøy in Bodø, Norway, above the polar circle, 67°49’ N and 14º 89’ E. Kjerringøy is a place of outstanding natural beauty. The landscape is steeped in wilderness and is breathtakingly beautiful with dramatic mountains, woodlands and marshlands, lowland and highland lakes and a river delta where the valley meets the fjord. The area has a great variety of wild flora and fauna, which makes a spectacular setting for just being and making creative and land based work. The population of the Kjerringøy region is close to 500 people but attracts many summer visitors.
