NORDIC ART COOPERATION: What happens when seven artists live and work together in an abandond pig-farm in Iceland for a limited period of time? How does the situation of working so closely to each other influence the artists and the end result?

tarGET was a self organized art cooperation and a project made by seven artists from Iceland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The artists stayed in Iceland for two and a half months with the aim to investigate a situation where artists work, live and exhibit together during a limited period of time. All the works in the exhibitions were made during this working period. The artists were working mostly on individual pieces, but there was a lot of contact, discussion, practical and art cooperation going on.The artists influenced each other’s work due to the situation of working so closely to each other. The communication was done by car, telephone, fax and Internet. The group was highly dependent on each other both for everyday tasks such as cooking but also for working with art. The project was a social experiment and dinner was a regular meating place in the old kitchen at Straumur Art Commune in Hafnarfjordur. 20 km outside Reykjavik.

The artists was: Maria Friberg (SE), Birgitta Silfverhielm (SE), Brynhild Bye (NO), Torbjørn Skårild (NO), John Øivind Eggesbø (NO), Magnea Asmundsdottir (IS) and Solveig Birna Stefansdottir (IS).

Three quite different guests were invited; a group psychologist, an art curator and a spiritual teacher. Each one represented very different angles to group relations and the sessions were done as an experiment. What was said during these sessions was later developed into a textbook. As outside observers and dialogue partners, the group invited two art theorists/curators. Monika Nickels from Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Halldor Bjorn Runolfsson from Iceland previously associated with Sveaborg in Helsinki. They followed the group and each one produced an article in the exhibition catalog.

tarGET – Critics

– Verd ad setja "målverk" Brynhildar Bye i gæsalappir, pvi mun frekar er um samklippur ad ræda, collage, i blandadri tækni.
Bragi Asgeirsson "Morgunbladid" Iceland october 1997

– Inmutningar i såval synliga som osynliga rum gør också norskan Brynhild Bye i sina målningar som med sitt abstrakta språk søker øversattningar av visuella och psykologiske upplevelser. I hvilken mån målet att finna nya innfallsvinklar infriats undandrar sig bedømning, då flertallet konstnærer ar obekanta før den svenska publiken. Men att resultatet blev en inspirerande och seværd utstællning kan varje besøkare på Fargfabrikken sjalv konstatera.
Uppsala Nya Tidning" may 1998

– Av de syv er det kun norske Brynhild Bye som holder fast ved maleriet. Men selv hun benytter seg av foto i sine svakt litterære arbeider.
Dagens næringsliv january 1998

– Jakten på det personlige og autentiske kunstprosjektet kan være nådeløs og hard. I tarGET`s tilfelle blir deltagelsen i gruppens personlige, selvutleverende og selvgranskende tanker bare til en pinlig og tom erfaring.
Wenche Wolle "Aftenposten" february 1998
