Currently on view at Michael Thibault Gallery, Los Angeles is “Alvor,” a two person exhibition featuring works by Thora Dolven Balke and Ann Cathrin November Høibo. The exhibition’s title is inspired from the Norwegian word “Alvor” which means to be completely true or honest.” The works in the exhibition speak to the word “Alvor” through various mediums including video, photographic prints, sculpture, and assemblage. “Imagine a world. Now imagine another. Now imagine the last moment you were laying with a lover in bed contented. Precious genitals pressed upon your thigh. You’ll never know why. Now imagine rhyming clumsily and ironically. Now imagine a world where your irony is both the song of a bird that has come to love its cage and the song of direct political action. This may take some imagination.” – J.J.S., 2014
“Alvor” is on view through May 4, 2014
