Nordisk kunst plattform
Nordisk Kunst Plattform is run by Elizabeth Croft and Jan Kjetil Bjørheim. We are fine artists, educated at one of Europe's foremost conceptual art colleges: Goldsmiths College, (London UK).
We work across a range of mediums. Elizabeth works mainly in photography and text but has also produced performance work and large-scale installations. Her focus is on the society she lives in, which happens currently to be the west-coast of Norway. Kjetil works mainly in paint and digital media but has also produced large-scale installations and collaborated with dancers. His area of interest is nature and its relationship with humans. He is also fascinated by flow, liquids and entropy.
We ran a project space at Brusand train-station for three years (2007-2010) to great critical acclaim. More information on this here www.nkplattform.no
Our works are also available via Hå Gamle Prestegard and Jan Kjetil's works are also available via Galleri G in Sandnes. All works can be collected (and framed there) by appointment.
Elizabeth checks an installation at Villa Faraldi, Italy. Part of a work that also includes film and text, which was a result of the Fritz Røed residency. (2012)
