Claudia Cortinez & Alva Mooses

A Day’s Dust

21.06. – 26.06.2018

A Day’s Dust is a two person exhibition by Claudia Cortinez and Alva Mooses including new work produced in Stavanger, Norway. Negative spaces that appear between edges and moments of contact – what passes through and collects on a surface: these tactile encounters have structured both artists’ experiences navigating this city. Claudia’s sculptural and photographic casts bring the eye to repeated perforations on concrete, building walls, the ground we stand on. The pressure of bodies and machines cast these patterns, making light what is embedded around us. Alva’s clay impressions suspend fragments of architecture into intimate proximity of the viewer. By using local stone and debris Alva creates markers of color and texture that reflect how the surrounding sea informs a landscape. This exhibition is supported by Studio17 in collaboration with Tou Trykk Stavanger. Over the past month Claudia and Alva have been artists-in-residence, teaching a workshop, Touching Landscape, at Tou Trykk. The workshop involving approximately twelve participants has explored intersections of experimental print and photo processes extending studio practices into the urban environment.
