Building a studio at the Solvær Islands

The studio is built at one of the Solvær Islands – where we both grew up. The islands (Solværøyene) are a group of more than 300 islands in the municipality of Lurøy in Nordland County, Norway. We started planning and building the studio in 2015, and finished the building-process at the end of 2017. The studio is to us more than a physical place and even more than a mental space, it is a necessity of being. At its most pragmatic, it is simply a necessary space of artisic practice, research and display.
