Durational performance

Kurt Johannessen

Kurt Johannessen’s work ”The Eighth Investigation” is a durational performance, using small objects on the borderline between poetry and science. The performance will take place at Wäinö Aaltonen Museum, during two days on the festival weekend.

Born 1960 in Norway, Kurt Johannessen works within performance artist’s books video and installations since the early eighties. His work is minimalist and poetic, and at times with a touch of humour. He is his own publisher and has produced more than 90 books, many of them translated into English. The books vary from just one sentence to short stories or just pictures. He has created 300 different performances and has presented his work extensively in Europe, and in some countries in Asia and America.
