THE FILM EGRESS FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED NORWEGIAN ARTIST KNUT ÅSDAM HAD ITS PREMIERE AT OSLO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL LAST WEEKEND.
Åsdam creates his art through film, video, photography, text, sound and architecture, searching for and investigating the borders between the subject and its environment. ENGRESS is located in a gas station in the outskirts of Oslo. The main characters work at the gas station and at the bottom of the oil company hierarchy. It is in the outskirts both geographically and socially, which is a rather dark place to be. Even - or perhaps especially - in the most wealthy country in the world. EGRESS is also screened as a part of an installation Knut Åsdam is exhibiting at Trondheim Kunstmuseum and at the exhibition EDGELANDS at Slought Foundation in Philadelphia, USA. The film is directed by Knut Åsdam, produced by Knut Åsdam and Leif Magne Tangen and shot by Martin Testar. Hocus Focus has worked with Åsdam on previous productions, and we have been given the opportunity and trust to do so again with EGRESS. Post produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen, editing and colour grading by Mathias Theissen, VFX by Shanon Moratti and Bengt Ove Sannes. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen. To be inspired, take a look at the review in Artforum, where EGDGELANDS is the critics' picks.
