Taking a further step on the works of Frank Stella, Robert Mangold and Sol Lewitt.


The meeting >
We had a couple of hours of great conversation with Per Formo, Artist. Current Director of LKV, an Artist Run Space with the support of the Trondheim Kommune. Per Formo is nowadays playing a triple rol as Artist, Art Curator and Culture Manager.

1 / As Artist Per Formo deals with geometry and colour, taking a further step on the works of Frank Stella, Robert Mangold and Sol Lewitt.
2 / As Curator he has recently launched a collective show at the Babel Gallery. The show is a curatorial work wih six artists that build a storytelling about the area in which the gallery sits on.
3 / As Manager Per talks to different agents in town, bureaucrats, museum directors, musicians, writers and community centers to build a healthy Art Scene as Cultural Hub in the city of Trondheim.

Background >
We got to know LKV in 2008 through the Canadian Artist Heather Passmore who was a resident back then.
Last year we visited the house with Markus Lantto, a swedish Artist and Art Critic, at that time he was busy with some wood pieces and selfmade instruments. Now he has a show in town that we will visit very soon.

1. Conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach.

2. Rational judgements repeat rational judgements.

3. Irrational judgements lead to new experience.

4. Formal art is essentially rational.

5. Irrational thoughts should be followed absolutely and logically.
