Kunstnernes Hus Oslo

Jeg setter meg ned ved planten, blir planten, lytter og skriver ned det jeg hører. Blomsten Scilla brer seg ut over plenen i hager og langs veikanter om våren og plantes om høsten.
Den har sin opprinnelse fra Syria, Irak og Sør Russland. Den fortalte meg at den bærer med seg kraften til enhet mellom kulturer. Den sa Alt Er Tilgitt. I fortid, nåtid og framtid.

Dette er et rituale og en hyllest til tilgivelsens rå kraft.
Jeg inviterer publikum til å delta i et lyttende dypdykk og omskapelse av
de store og små kriger.

I sit down by the plant, meditate with the plant, listen and write down what I hear. The flower Scilla spreads over the lawn in gardens and along roadsides in the spring and is planted in the fall.It originates from Syria, Iraq and South Russia. It told me that it carries the power of unity between cultures. It said everything is forgiven. In past, present and future.

This is a performance, a ritual and a tribute to the raw power of forgiveness.
I invite the audience to participate in a listening and transformation of
the big and small wars.

Tenthaus Oslo
Spring Depot II
22.03 – 22.04. 2018

Welcome to Tenthaus Spring Depot II. On March 22, 7 pm Tenthaus Oslo will open its doors for an exhibition with art works selected by students attending Hersleb School´s elementary school program for migrants. The exhibition will show works by 48 artists, as well as documentation from the process´ leading up to the exhibition.

22.03 – 22.04. 2018
Tenthaus Oslo, Maridalsveien 3, Oslo
Open Friday-Sunday 1 – 5 pm (closed at Easter 30.03 – 01.04)
Opening 22 March at 7:00 p.m.

Spring Depot II 2018 is based on an Open Call for artists to submit smaller scale works that would fit into a prearranged shelving system. The international jury, aged between 16-20, collaborated with the Tenthaus Artist Collective to select art for Spring Depot II based on their curiosity and interests. During three sessions at the school, all 65 submitted works were presented and thoroughly discussed. Then the artists later met the youngsters in the gallery, where the young people have unwrapped, and chosen the placing of the work to make an interesting exhibition with its own unity.

The talks between the artists and the students are an essential part of the project. How did you made this? What does it mean? What is sculpture, an installation, a soundwork? Can a crate of beer be called art?

Participating artists are Tine Aamodt, Jannik Abel, Hedda Roterud Amundsen, Vibeke Frost Andersen, Kjersti Austdal, Siri Austeen, Åslaug Krokann Berg, Line Berget, Johan Urban Bergquist, Bjørn Bjarre, Hild Borchgrevink, Stein Are Kjærås Dahl, Helene Duckert, Anne Liv Einarsen, Eli Eines, Glen Farley, Thale Fastvold, Amy Franceschini, Hilde Frantzen, Andrea Galiazzo, Joana Gelazyte, Elna Hagemann, Daniel Hansen, Tsanko Hristov, Øyunn Hustveit, Mathilda Höög, Sabina Jacobsson, Mariana R Jaskowsky, Kjersti Countries, Grete Marstein Øyvind Mellbye, Ingvild Brekke Myklebust, Anni Onsager, Kirsten Opstad, Julie Oredam, Lisa Pacini, Klara Pousette, ShwanDlerQaradaki, Astrid Runde Saxegaard, Ulla Schildt, Julie Skarland, Øyvind Sørfjordmo, Helene Torp, Bente Tømmerås, True Solvang Vevatne, Maria Viirros, Allyce Wood

Tenthaus Spring Depot II is an exhibition that is developed around a frame of shelves, originally a work of art by Stefan Schröder entitled Archive. My thoughts, your actions (2013), which was shown at the Norwegian Sculpture Biennal, as well as at Tenthaus Oslo during Spring Depot 2015 curated by Rachel Dagnall. The concept is further developed with Winter Depot at Galleri Box in Gothenburg (2018) and culminating with Spring Depot II at Tenthaus Oslo.

Fredslilje, Spathiphyllum alana

Fredslilje, Spathiphyllum alana
Dette er mitt møte med og en hyllest til Fredsliljen. En dag jeg kom på ateliet lå den helt nede. Halvdød, men ikke vissen. Jeg hadde glemt den helt. Ikke har jeg byttet jord på den på mange år heller. Jeg vannet og snakket med den. Kom tilbake noen dager etterpå og den var helt oppreist. Det sier mye om dens kvaliteter. Den tilgir for dårlig stell og reiser seg på en måte som vi mennesker bare kan drømme om. Det er en vanlig stueplante. Eller jeg føler den er en hyllest til de som har reist i krig og valgt fred, som flyktninger på reise og har fått det godt i seg selv eller på nye steder.

Spathiphyllum alana
This is my meeting with and a tribute to the plant called Peace Lily. One day I got to the studio it looked dead. Half dead, but not the done. I had forgotten it completely. I have not put new potting soil for it for many years either. I watered and talked with it. Came back a few days afterwards and it was completely alive. It says a lot about its qualities. It forgives for bad care and rises in a way that we humans can only dream of. It is a common living plant. Or I feel it is a tribute to those who have traveled in war and chose peace, as refugees traveling and have done well in themselves or in new places in a strange way.

Om kjaerlighet

Om kjærlighet.
Denne videoen laget jeg fordi et av de vanskeligste temaene i kunsten og livet er kjærlighet. Jeg diskuterer og har mange synspunkter om hva og hvordan. 6 minutter.© Helene Torp, All rights reserved. Enjoy! This is only in Norwegian language for the moment.

Flower Wisdom by Helene Torp

Whispers and wonders from Mother Earth
“Art is a kind of first aid kit and a flower medicine. It heals,but it does not cover up the wounds” Rituals, performance and handcrafted flower essences for emotional healing.
-an ongoing project

I think we humans and animals have an opportunity to listen to nature’s very own characteristics. It is my own experience, but it requires a distinctive listening and trust that this listening is connected with nature and not just an expression of a mental force, a will, even if that force is a part of getting art and the remedies out in the world. I call it first-hand experience. The part of us who can put us in a state, where deep listening to nature is possible. I sit down by the flower or the bush, after a few hours or days of preparation in the spirit, I record og write down what I hear.

Othocallis siberica
"It is all Forgiven"
Origin Syria, Irak and South of Russia.

“After flowering, the inflorescence sets on the ground with seeds that have an oily pendant. Ants love these seeds and drag them away and eat them. In this way the seeds are spread further. “

Everything is forgiven, future, past, present. This plant carries unity between cultures in the past, present and future time. Othocallis siberica is here to raise peace frequencies on the earth. It can be used for peace work in our time both personal or bigger wars.

Ribes Sanguineum
"Deeper Lasting Love"

“Trauma brought me here, the pain took me there, the shit took me here, blame and charges brought me here, my victim took me here, the courage took me here. I got hurt. I could not see myself in you, like the other, and not as one as part of myself. That you are you and I am me. That love is created from within in a center of stability and some of lasting value. The very self-love. ”

The plant is originally from the coastal area of North America ,
the current British Columbia, Washington , Oregon,
Idaho and California in the US and Canada

1-1-2 Tuning In From The Galaxy

112 Tuning In From The Galaxy – gallery installation view. Collaboration with hege Liseth.
1-1-2 Tuning In From The Galaxy deals with spirituality, the power of thought and ” the seeker ” who sees the world in a rather different way than mainstream.

The work displays a series of portraits of a woman in a daily life situation. Her name is Kari Hanne Nyland and she is a channel for spiritual energy and masters. She tells us she has chosen to use her life to spread the light and love of the world and raise the spirit in the collective field.

The work also consists of five soundstations, each with its own headset, and channeled symbols and texts drawn directly on the wall.

Special thanks to Kari Hanne Nyland, Bengt Svensson and Rita Edvardsen for their contribution.

“Channeling … collective term for it to receive messages from another dimension or another real light level. Channeled message to be understood often as important knowledge transfers from beings with great insight into the factors that are hidden from ordinary people , especially to susceptible individuals. … The channeled knowledge can come from many sources … It may be knowledge from the Akashic Chronicle , a higher spiritual being or a deceased person ( spiritualism ). Messages can also come from guardian angels, entities in nature or the captain of a UFO. Kil – they are: Norwegian Encyclopedia, online edition.

Soundtrack: Lyshjelpere Fra En Annen Galakse 1:30 min (Helpers Of Light From Another Galaxy, for now the soundtrack is in Nourwegian only)
