Shadows within the wall
10 October - 1 November 2008

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of Hans Hamid Rasmussen's first solo exhibition at Martin Asbęk Projects.

The Norwegian-Algerian artist based in Oslo shows 6 new works of embroidery. He refers to his artistic project as an "homage to the hybrid", and in his embroideries he tries to give form to the experience of ruptures in language.

Rasmussen was born in Alger 1963, and French was his mother tongue. At the age of 7 he moved with his family to Norway, and he soon lost his first language. His work explores intercultural dilemmas and the possibility to express both the introvert and silent language he knew from Alger as well as the extravert language he knows from his upbringing in Norway.

Hans Hamid Rasmussen currently participates in the 3rd Guangzhou Triennial in China and presented a major solo exhibition at Trondheim Art Museum, Norway 2007. In 2004 he represented Norway at the Sao Paulo Biennial.

Opening 10 October 5 - 7 p.m.

Kind regards
Martin Asbęk
