NUART x UKM PRESENT THE CULT OF RAMMELLZEE AND OTHER ARTISTS
500 of the most creative and talented youths in Norway will be coming to Sandnes this June (Wednesday 21st - Sunday 25th) for the Norwegian Youth Festivals of Art (UKM).
Nuart has been advising on the development of the festival for the past 18 months and is delighted to present three artistic productions including workshops, live performances and installations with internationally-renowned performance and street artists.
Through the mediums of graffiti, breakdancing, skateboarding and music the Cult of Rammellzee (UK) will devise a public performance combining visual art, sound and choreography with 60 UKM participants over three days. The ambitious project is co-curated by Cedar Lewisohn, the man behind Tate Modern’s ground-breaking ‘Street Art’ exhibition in 2008.
The Cult of Rammellzee is a performance art collective that has a track record of working on commissions for major cultural institutions. Both the Barbican and the Saatchi Gallery in London have invited them to perform their peculiar mixture of chanting, spray-painting and breakdancing in their spaces. Their trademark costumes, assembled from plastic odds and ends with a splash of hi-vis, make them look like psychedelic Transformers, with exotic fabrics adding an ethno-futurist twist. They work in honour of the graffiti/performance artist Rammellzee who died in 2010.
French street art duo Ella & Pitr (FR) will produce a large-scale mural off Langgata (Sandnes’ main thoroughfare) and a series of paste-up artworks in collaboration with 20 participants. Their work reiterates the importance of ‘play’ in shaping more imaginative and interesting public spaces – a message they hope to pass on to the participants in UKM.
On Saturday 24th the Berlin-based duo Die Raubdruckerin (DE) will host a Street Printing workshop on Langgata (12.00 - 15.00) for UKM participants and the general public alike. The workshop provides the opportunity to make their own unique textile prints on clothes, fabrics and paper using everyday urban objects such asmanhole covers and other street level surfaces. Anyone taking part is advised to bring their own t-shirt, tote bag or textile to print on.
The Norwegian Youth Festivals of Art (UKM) has been held in Trondheim for 24 of the past 25 years. This year the event is being held in Sandnes and will focus on art in public space, with 500 participants from every county in Norway collaborating to create new performances, installations and works of art.
UKM arrange festivals all over Norway where young artists between the ages of 13 and 20 can perform and express their artistic vision in front of an audience and each other. During the festivals, participants also attend workshops, where they can explore their interests and be inspired by the works of other artists.
The objective of the UKM is to stimulate young people’s creativity and make their cultural activity visible. It is designed to be flexible and informal; aiming to inspire participants’ curiosity and broaden their cultural horizon.
The Department of Culture at Rogaland County Council, The Department of Culture at Sandnes Municipality and Vågen Upper Secondary School have taken joint-responsibility for the organisation of the event. Nuart has been advising on the development of the festival for the past 18 months.
