Lars Kjemphol’s art project at Aurvoll school consists of a large, powerful wall painting, a sculpture on which you can rest, and speakers connected to an audio system indoors. The artwork is a product of close collaboration with year 7 pupils in the 2016/17 cohort. Its title “What is this place called?” is an invitation for pupils to come up with a new name every year.
Øyer municipality’s contribution to Vegskille has had Meeting Points as sub-topic. For this project, the village of Tretten has been in focus.
Lars Kjemphol often refers to his work as anti-art; projects that incorporate both graffiti and street-art intervention – but, as opposed to the hidden world of street art reserved for a select few, Kjemphol’s installations and artworks invite to interaction, fun, and shared experiences.
