In How to Become a Non-Artist (2007), Ane Hjort Guttu (b. 1971, Norway) looks at small arrangements of everyday objects by her four year-old son and offers an in-depth commentary about these inadvertent works of art. Mary Reid Kelley (b. 1979, USA) collaborates with her partner Patrick Kelley (b. 1969) on the stylised black and white video This is Offal (2016), an absurdist take on TV medical dramas in which the organs of a young woman’s body argue about the cause of her death.
Ane Hjort Guttu is selected by Tromsø Kunstforening. Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley are selected by Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
