PAM "Nordic - Part I"
The Utsikten Kunstsenter is a new arena for art and technology in the south region in Norway. It was established in May 2008. It is not an art centre in a traditional sense. Exhibitions are not be limited to the main room, the 'Multimedia hall', but will influence the space as a whole. An exhibition at Utsikten Kunstsenter includes for example the TV in the hotel rooms where on channel 2 there is a chance to exhibit artwork. In the foyer large projections can be viewed above the main entrance linked to a wireless headphone system. For the upcoming season, in the outdoor exhibition arena, we will begin 'Digital Perspectives', curated programs of site specific works in new media, sound video and film. "Digital Perspectives" will begin with an open competition for artists. A selection of Nordic artists - Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Faroe Islands - curated by Torhild Haugen, Raphaele Shirley and Iris Piers.
PAM 'Nordic - Part I' is the first installment of a series of programs in a rotating exhibition at the Utsikten Kunstsenter. PAM Nordic is a collaboration between Perpetual Art Machine, The Utsikten Kunstsenter and P.N.E.K.

"Still/Crash/Flow" presents a cross section of Nordic video art today. Exploring the selected works through the lens of PAM-Perpetual Art Machine philosophy, the individual pieces are organized according to folksonomies and by juxtaposition in time following the diverse ideas presented in each piece. Spanning various types of works, from abstract to cinematic, from absurd to critical, from performative to meditative this selection celebrates an exceptional group of artists whose unique perspective and approach to video art form a new voice within contemporary art today.
