Borre Saethre

Desire, dream and reality are the conditions of human nature that Borre Saethre, a Norwegian and eclectic artist, try to revive within its installations. His performances are real reconstructions of environments with the use of concepts from architecture, interior design and set dress which lead visitors in a virtual world. Everything is permitted: recorded sounds, pilot lights,video, furniture, sculpture.

Works aim to condition of aesthetic pleasure and psychological uneasiness. This mixture of feelings comes from the charm suffered by Saethre by the Freudian theory of the "uncanny", according to which everything can be both familiar and alien, this causes cognitive dissonance and anxiety.
His works show knowledge from many different fields, from cinema to literature, from design to story revisited all through their own personal experiences and the influence of his native land.

Result given by all these influences brings to the creation of minimal and futuristic environments in which stands silent and that seem taken from scenes of Kubrick's films to which the artist often makes explicit references. The performances of Saethre have exhibitions in famous galleries such as the Loevenbruck of Paris and Mudam in Luxembourg.
