The Cabin Series
Three on-board cabins served as ambulating galleries in what we called The Cabin Series. A program introducing a selection of independent, artist run or artist governed contemporary art spaces in Norway. Each invited space is given carte blanche to program according to their own agendas, with a new space presenting a new project in each cabin, each day of the journey.

Nancy Lupo / 1857
HOLD THE PHONE
Phone poetry and sculpture.
Cabin. 434, deck 4.
Nancy Lupo was presented by 1857 in the Cabin Series with the commissioned works Hold the Phone – you had to call the art form the cabin, and a Grissini sculpture. Curated by Stian Eide Kluge and Steffen Håndlykken.
Nancy Lupo works with objects and installations as interventions based on commercial products and industrialized food. Her interferences often reveal or reconfigure the way commodities structure our behaviour and form our subjectivity. Nancy Lupo lives and works in Los Angeles, USA.
Danilo Correale / Entrée
Reverie: On the Liberation from Work.
Hypnotherapy, 21:20 min x 2, LP Record.
Cabin 434, deck 4.
Danilo Correale was presented by Entrée, curated by Randi Grov Berger and Espen Johansen.
Artist Danilo Correale has collaborated with a New York-based psychotherapist and hypnotherapist to create a guided hypnosis, exclusively for the Cabin Series, that aims to relax the body and mind in preparation for a post-work society. This hypnotic exercise guided the visitor on a peaceful journey of the mind to explore the realm where work is no longer needed, and where the dream of universal basic income has finally succeeded.
Hanne Lippard / Kunsthall Stavanger
A spoken–word performance in three parts.
Cabin. 436, deck 4.
Hanne Lippard was presented by Kunsthall Stavanger in the Cabin Series. Curated by Hanne Mugaas.
Hanne Lippard’s practice explores the voice as a medium. Her education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative, and her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance. Hanne Lippard lives and works in Berlin.
Hanna Fauske / RAKE visningsrom
Installation, TV-show and CD.
Cabin. 640, deck 6.
Hanna Fauske was presented by RAKE visningsrom in the Cabin Series. Curated by Trygve Ohren and Charlotte Rostad.
Erik Elk is a man in his forties. Once a month he boards Hurtigruta to escape the confines of his home, located in the countryside of Trøndelag. What separates Erik from the rest of the passengers is that he has a tendency to leave his cabin unlocked.
In Fauske’s work we find ourselves in a fictitious world populated by so-called ordinary people. As viewers we are invited into the private spheres of these characters, where Fauske puts emphasis on objects and situations that, seemingly, are completely ordinary.
Gerasimos Floratos / SCHLOSS
A series of small sculptures and a notebook.
Cabin 436, deck 4.
Artists Gerasimos Floratos was presented by SCHLOSS in the Cabin Series, curated by Ida Ekblad.
The space was occupied by a series of new works of handmade figures produced in his grandmother’s old cafe turned studio on the Greek island of Kefalonia. Accompanying the figures was a notebook the artist has been traveling with and working on throughout the year. Floratos’ work takes us on a psycho-geographic tour of the artist’s world, hosted by a cast of anthropomorphised characters which evoke slouching alter egos some more closely resembling him than others, but all sharing an uncanny cartoonish familiarity that belies their autobiographical nature.
Nora Joung / UKS
Six performances and film.
Cabin Nr. 640, deck 6.
Nora Joung – a Norwegian artist whose succinct word-based performances question who decides what reality sounds like and how it is best described, was invited by UKS to mount a retrospective of her performative works. Curated by Rhea Dall, director of UKS.
Using the cabin compartment as backdrop, Joung’s presented a chronological walk-through of her performative works to date.
