Kunstkatalog 2013 - Wintershall Norge AS

The Wintershall Norge Art Collection 2013
The purpose of Wintershall’s art programme
Wintershall has over a long period supported art, and used it as
a source of joy, inspiration and provocation. Good art invites us
to really see ourselves – if we dare.
In Kassel, our headquarters hometown, Documenta, the world’s
most important exhibition of modern and contemporary art
takes place every five years, and lasts 100 days. Since the
beginning in 1955, it has grown from 135 000 visitors to 860 000
in 2012. This shows the importance and power of art.
Our art programme – as seen in our main office in Norway –
consists of 51 different works of art made by 24 different artists.
This is art of high quality, showing different and new techniques
and modes of expression. Many of these pieces have been
specially made for us.
Our intention is to use the art in an interactive way to contribute
to our personal development and to our company’s growth as a
We want our art to stimulate our senses, challenge and provoke.
At the same time we believe our interaction with art will also confirm and build our identity, and contribute to more courage in our
creative and professional hunt for unique values in the process
of creating profit and building our company’s culture.

Bleken has been and still is one of the most prominent Norwegian artists over
the last forty years. He has had a vast influence on the Norwegian contemporary art scene, and is consider a national master. His works has a wide range
of expression, from carefully composed pieces, to intelligent simplicity. And he
has developed his language from purely abstract to figurative. Håkon Bleken
uses art in a constant quest to find his place in life, which is reflected in his
ability to continually reinvent himself as an artist.
Bleken’s works are included in many important collections such as the one of
the Norwegian National Gallery, Norsk Hydro and Statoil. His art is displayed
in St. Olav katolske kirke (Trondheim), Olavshallen, Oslo Konserthus, and in
Oslo Central Station. In 2009 a documentary about the life of Håkon Bleken
was published, the film premiered at Kosmorama in Trondheim in March
2009. Since his debute in 1951 he has shown single handedly in a variety of
Norway’s most important galleries and museums such as National Gallery
and Henie Onstad Kunstmuseum. In 2005 he won the award of Anders Jahre
kulturpris and in 2009 he was awarded by the king of Norway the title of
commandant of St. Olav Orden.

Pøbel; (meaning: roughly, hooligan) is a pseudonymous Norwegian street artist
based in Stavanger. He is best known for the Getto spedalsk (Ghetto leperous)
project, decorating abandoned buildings in at the Lofoten islands in
the north of Norway, along with notable collaborator “Dolk”. Both were
later commissioned to decorate the central railway stations in both
Oslo and Trondheim.
Also known for his project “terra Nullius” (streetart in nowhere land)
One of Norway’s foremost street artists. His work all over Europe has been
documented in a number of books on the subject. His stencil paintings are
mostly sight gags.
One series, for example, portrays superheroes such as Superman and
Batman in decrepit old age.
He is probably the first artist who have painted a project on a dead
Pøbels age and real name is not officially known.
Last project:
Komafest has taken place in Vardø, Norway 2012. The norwegian artist Pøbel
is the curator of the festival, having gathered eleven other highly regarded
street artists from all over the world; Brazil, USA, Portugal, England, Belgium,
France, Ireland and Norway. www.komafest.com
Tarzan Sithole
Thaddeus Strode
(b. 1975, Harare, Zimbabwe)
(b. 1964, Santa Monica, CA, USA)
Tarzan and his twin brother Test (also a sculptor) completed high school in
1992 and became apprentices for the well-known second-generation
sculptors Witness and Lameck Bonjisi.
Otis/Parsons Art Institute California Institute of the Arts, BFA
While Test tried his luck in football for some years, Tarzan continued working
closely with the Bonjisi family and some of his works reflect some similar
Even Tarzan’s earliest work displayed tremendous talent.
Tarzan appears to have no or little knowledge of European sculpture
and has probably never even seen a picture of Michelangelo’s ‘David’.
Yet, Tarzan’s sculpture ‘The Slave’ from 1999 is very similar to this sculpture.
But here the surface rock has not been smoothed. Rather, he left ‘The Slave’
with rough chisel marks, giving the impression that the subject has been
harshly treated.

Word To Mother
Stian Ådlandsvik
(Undisclosed date of birth, artist stems from a place near the sea, UK)
(b. 1981, Bergen, Norway)
Word to Mother started doing graffiti in 1995 and went on to study
a degree in illustration. Born and raised in a small English seaside town,
Word To Mother was never far from a stony beach, crashing waves
and somewhat salty sea veterans.
National Academy of Fine Arts, Oslo (2003 – 2006)
(Exchange with Hochschule für bildende Künste, Hamburg in 2005)
Rogaland School of Art, Stavanger (2001 – 2003)
This environment has been a major influence in Word to Mother’s work and
its impact can be seen throughout his drawings and paintings.
His looseness of line, fluidity of style and the energy present in each
and every painting make his work and approach truly unique.

Galleri 21:25, Oslo
2004 Dieluxe Emergency Equipment, Galleri 21:24, Oslo
Word To Mother has fast gained a firm and loyal following.
His popularity was confirmed during the show ‘Till the Hot Runs Cold’,
where the artist sold out on the opening night.
Even with shows scheduled for London (where the artist currently
resides), San Francisco and LA – his artwork ensures that no matter
where in the world he travels, he’s never far from his home-town port.
