Intro
Sommer-Solheim presents the exhibition Is this the place? by The Arkivet. The newly established artistic group presented their first exhibition at Kunstbanken Hamar Kunstsenter (NO) in January this year. The show explored the notion of  'Traces' by each of the 5 members associated with the collective. The exhibition at Austellungsraum Sommer-Solheim in Munich will provide an other solution. 
A catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

The ARCHIVE
The ARCHIVE is a new art group that consist of five well-established jewelry artists, all living and working in Norway: Putte H. Dal, Hilde Dramstad, Elsie-Ann Hochlin, Camilla Luihn and Heidi Sand.
 
Is this my place?
The ARCHIVE´s exhibition project is titled Is this my place? The theme is “Traces”.  We all seek belonging. With references from our own lives - places we've been to, or shadows of events - we create atmospheres of where we want to be, or try to escape from. The topic is articulated in jewelry, each member contributing with their own individual approaches, tastes and interpretations. An overall intention is to develop an atmosphere in the given exhibition spaces in a manner that provide the viewer associations to their own affections.
 
A new art group
The ARCHIVE started up as collaboration in 2014 sought to inspire each member in their artistic development and to share knowledge within the medium of Jewelry & Objects. As a dynamic group, we create exhibitions that illuminate and clarify themes we set as focus points. Each project we develop consists of a new topic and a new related body of work. The exhibition spaces will not only be presented as a showroom for the jewels and objects, but also work as a resource for the exhibition project.
 
Installation
The ARCHIVE had their first artist group exhibition at Kunstbanken Hamar Kunstsenter in January this year. Is this my place? was presented in a basement with four small rustic rooms; thick brick walls and low ceilings. With old cupboards, drawers and lamps we created an atmosphere that convey thoughts around the idea that each and one of us as human beings behold our own archives. The exhibition space at Austellungsraum Sommer-Solheim in Munich will provide an other solution.
A sound loop made by Tor Jørgensen follows the exhibition.
 
Catalogue
The ARCHIVE is launching a catalogue that is based on visual images from our first exhibition presentation. Texts that reinforce our concept are written by the philosopher Mikkel B. Tin, and by the filmmaker and author Dag Johan Haugerud.
 
Sponsors
The exhibition and catalogue is sponsored by funds from The Norwegian Association for Arts and Craft, The Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Berlin and The Royal Norwegian Consulate in Munich.
