Kåre Aleksander Grundvåg STUDIO
KÅRE ALEXANDER GRUNDVÅG
Kåre Aleksander Grundvåg (b. 1984) is a visual artist based in Tromsø. In his work, Grundvåg has the coastal landscape in Troms both as a frame of reference and as a home. He has a master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tromsø (2015).
He is currently exploring non-human architecture through sculptural interventions in public spaces. Material knowledge, vernacular problem solving and biomimetics are important elements in his work.
Together with visual artist Trond Ansten, Kåre Grundvåg formed the artist duo Devils Apron, which explored ecological and social experimentation around the use of seaweed and marine resources, with a focus on combining traditional knowledge, coastal culture and recent research.
His work has recently been shown at: Entrée(2021), Bergen Kunsthall(2021), Kunsthalle Wien(2021), Kurant Visningsrom, Tromsø (2020); The Autumn Exhibition, Oslo (2019); LIAF, Svolvær (2019); Barents Spectacle, Kirkenes (2019); Meat the Future, A.K.T Pforzeim (2019); Arctic Arts Festival, Harstad (2018) and the Arctic Art Forum, Arkhangelsk (2018).
