Borealis Recommends in December

Christmas holiday is right around the corner. Although Christmas food is yummy we also need some food for the soul – which the holiday actually gives time for.

We recommend you listen to Beatrice Dillon’s debut album Workaround which is listed on The Guardian’s Best Albums of 2020.

Maybe you also need to rebel a bit during the holidays – in that case you can drop by Galleri Entrée where artist Lin Wang has transformed the gallery into a tattoo shop: Exotic Dreams Tattoo Shop. You pay in personal stories and get a totally real tattoo in return.

If you wish you can then continue over to Bergen Kunsthall where the exhibition Basically by Nikima Jagudajev is on. This is an ongoing live event where you’re invited to experience choreography, rehearsal, discussion and staging of movement based work. The exhibition is made specifically to work with Covid regulations.

If you’re struggling with Christmas presents for your artistic friends, what about giving an artist book? Bergen Art Book Fair is selling books online this year. We can for instance recommend Can You Make The Band Name Bigger? – The Poster Art of Luke Drozd, a result of 15 years of work with poster design for the music industry.
