I have two prints for sale in this exhibition!


More info at Tenthaus


To mark the end of 2020, Tenthaus invites artists collaborating with us in 2020 and 2021 to take part in a sales exhibition. We take this as an opportunity to reflect on current governing politics, the times we are living in and the future. Tenthaus for Sale invites you for a conversation about the economy of individual artists and socially engaged art practices. ‘What about the fact that we are broke?’ was uttered by an artist in Tenthaus after months marked by uncertainty, vulnerability and doubt.

I will participate in a conversation with Thure Erik Lund moderated by

Magnhild Øen Nordal in


Latent City – Invisible Fields #1, a programme that brings issues raised in the exhibition Latent City into dialogue through performances, talks, presentations and more.


On Saturday 21/11 from 2p, till 3pm cet (in Norgweigan).


For rest of the program, updated streaming links and

information please look at

Bergen Centre for Electronic arts website

I am presenting a new commissioned video installation called "It fits beautifully in the palm of your hand" opening at Bergen Kjøtt on the 12th of November.

More information here


The title Latent City is inspired by the term “latent space” from machine learning and artificial intelligence. Latent space refers to the pool of compressed data that the machine analyzes in order to extract knowledge from, and where algorithmic computations often are so complex that they become opaque and gain a life of their own. Latent City thus approaches the city structures that are obscured from our view: infrastructures such as wi-fi and surveillance technology, more-than-human perspectives from animals and nature, and political factors that involve power relations and social exclusion. Sci-fi visions of the city and contemplations on city planning point to new possibilities as well as pitfalls.

15/11 2019                                           Exhibition Opening

The Construction of a New Body

I am taking part in the exhibition at Kurant.


Maija Liisa Björklund, Johanne Bøckmann, Line Solberg Dolmen, Linn Horntvedt, Nicolas William Hughes, Soko Hwang, Emelie Karin Ieremia, Maren Dagny Juell, Aaron McCarthy, Agnieszka Mastalerz, Tromsø Folkekjøkken, Tanya Varbanova and works from the Arsenal (De), Lightcone (Fr) and Filmform (Se) archives.



From the Swedish Folk Home to the New-town, Corbusier to the Metabolism movement to Celebration Village; from Radio Calisthenics to the Greek gymnasium to the Nazi’s ideal man - the body and the home have historically been used as sites for the manifestation of political ideology, the collective and social change. How are our bodies collective sites of contest and creation to propagandise or empower the political systems we are within? Who designs the buildings we inhabit or the political paths we move along? Is the body directed by the houses and the system it works within or does it mold, shape, strengthen or destroy? ‘Construction of a New Body’ seeks to explore contemporary modes of living, our collective movement and the question of who builds utopia and how do we live there when it is done?

«Space has the power to transform business—unlocking the potential of people and organizations. Intentional design, warm hospitality, and flexible solutions enable your team to do its best work.» – WeWork, a coworking company with 341 locations worldwide.



Flexible Schedule is a coworking inspired VR-installation by Maren Dagny Juell that can be visited by appointment in Atelier Nord’s spacious and bright office, located centrally at Grünerløkka in Oslo. Dagny Juell has built a virtual copy of the space, in line with the creative entrepreneur’s need for a well-designed, flexible workplace in an open-plan layout. Experience the zen-like workflow that stems from a new desk every day and free use of the shared espresso machine. Live the life of a freelancer and unleash your creativity without stressing over negligible pension rights, the lack of sick pay, unemployment in cases of personal crisis, or difficulties with being approved for a mortgage – remember, you’re here to be flexible. Besides, we have some really nice green plants.


A series of goopy, tactile sculptures are mirrored as furnishings in the virtual version of the office and visitors are encouraged to touch. With Flexible Schecdule Dagny Juell explores how the sensory apparatus can receive input from a virtual and a physical space simultaneously. She is also interested in how the body is subjugated by economic power structures through the use of language that praises flexibility.

06/09 2018                                              Exhibition Opening

Participating in a group show at DIENSTGEBÄUDE Art Space in Zurich 7/09-6/10


at PS 1

Sobranie Cocktail

Benedikte Bjerre (DK), Delphine Chapuis Schmitz CH), Maren Dagny Juell Kristensen (NO), Julien Previeux (FR), Morgane Tschiember (FR), Sergio Verastegui (PE/FR)


curated by Julia Cistiakova and Ekaterina Shcherbakova


The exhibition Sobranie Cocktail comes from a discussion between the participants on better work issuing from the given conditions. The exhibition on how to make a better exhibition passes through an attitude of non-productivity and results in the assembly of individual responses.


The definition of better work results and processes is specified by various technological and social realms. Confronting the technological and manual DIY consciousnesses, fading borderline between work and leisure, manifesting the disappearance of the author, the exhibition sets up an issue of better working conditions in art within the broader social context. A series of non-works fosters the productivity and usability of free time, seeks the limits of procrastination, and questions the utility of deconstruction. Exposing the pre-production elements, honouring side-effects and leftovers, scrutinising the materiality of time, are all the processes that form the spatial discourse of the exhibition.


Benedikte Bjerre glances back to the early era of productivity movement, notably related to the expansion of the female labour force as well as the extraction of potential free time due to technological facilitators of domestic work. Morgane Tschiember exposes the interior of workshops that she frequented to produce her sculptures: erotic posters objectifying women’s bodies are juxtaposed to the atmosphere they are presented in, being a relief and at the same time, an antagonist of men’s hard work. Maren Dagny Juell ironically explores a pedagogy of online tutorials, implementing a gap of despair that appears while one is supposed to learn how to optimise their mental and physical. Sergio Verastegui designs a protocol for realising a dysfunctional painting, manifesting the idea of almost non-working, as well as addresses a series of postcards from his vacation during the exhibition period. Delphine Chapius Schmitz reveals the notes she is taking regularly that form her universe of realised and unrealised works, preparations for teaching, daily observations, and reflections.


Sobranie Cocktail offers to visit the reunion once it came to its end, and have a look at the set of the individual responses aiming to improve the discourse, the display, and simply to make it better according to one’s knowledge and interpretation.

Welcome to a talk between Shama Khanna and myself at Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst

 18-19  on 27/02 2018.

Shama Khanna is a curator and author based in London. Khanna has curated more than 50 artist projects both freelance and as part of collaboration with The Showroom, the BFI London Film Festival and the LUX / ICA Biennial of Moving Images in London, Documenta14 in Athens. She has founded the journal Aorist, a journal of experimental writing about contemporary art culture. Khanna also teaches at Kingston University.




Welcome to the opening Thursday February 15 at 19:00

Details at gallery website


The exhibition SQUAT/special features resembles a gym. Here, the audience can book time with a personal trainer. Through close follow-up and the use of VR-technology, the audience will experience a virtual world that questions the autonomy of the individual and the limits of subjectivity.


In SQUAT the fitness apparatus is utilized to display its inherent structuring of the lived socio-political experience. Maren Dagny Juell relates the flexibility searched for in the gym to the subject caught in an economic world — where ageing, decay and rigidity becomes the navigation line between ultimate defeat and possible protest.

19/01 2017                            EXHIBITION: SOFT STRATEGY, HARD REALITY

Welcome to the opening of a new exhibition that also is the first exhibition in RAM galleris new space, after the gallerys relocation to Thorvald Meyersgate 51 at Grünerløkka.

(Nearest tramstop is Olaf Ryes Plass.)


The exhibition “Soft strategy, hard reality” has a focus on textile art, as 2017 marks the 40 year anniversary of Norwegian Textile Artists . Congratulations!

The artists in this exhibition all have in common that in their artistic praxis, they question and comment on contemporary issues and phenomena, with artworks that in various ways refer to traditions, identity and cultural heritage and how these topics are expressed in arts & crafts, how they serve as "soft" strategies for dealing with a harsh reality.


I am showing two pieces in the show.
