Victory! Victory! One Land, One Ocean, One Sky.

Carly Troncale participates in the exhibition Screaming from the Mountain, Landscapes and Viewpoints with her project “Victory! Victory! One Land, One Ocean, One Sky”. She has installed an edible garden on the steps of SKMU.

This project is in collaboration with the new Mean Bean Cafe at the museum which will serve delicious organic dishes from the harvests throughout the duration of the exhibition. Victory! Victory! One Land, One Ocean, One Sky celebrates self-sufficiency and the intersection of food, art, community and urbanism. It is also made possible by generous assistance from the Randesund Planteskole.

There is veggies growing at the museum and we will be working together with the wonderful new Mean Bean Cafe at SKMU to serve them to you in delicious organic dishes!

Carly Troncale was born in Ithaca, New York, in 1977. She received a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2004 and a MFA in Social Practice from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2007. She moved to Norway where she now lives and works in December 2009.

In 2004 Troncale founded American Nordic Site Response. ANSR produces exhibits on land use in the United States and Nordic regions as well as other communities. These exhibitions are in the form of documentation, video, lectures, material architecture or agriculture and sometimes all of these. The purpose of ANSR is to create discourse in the perception of the visual landscape.

Influenced by the post-industrial environment, she works with a wide variety of projects that often make an impression then disappear without a trace. In “Can You See that I Touched This” she painted bright pink the first layers of plywood installed on an apartment building. In “Explosions” she built a village of architectural models and then used pyrotechnics to demolish it. In her most recent project, “Building Dwelling”, Troncale converted a livable shipping container into an art gallery, filled it with a utopian miniature landscape and installed it in the center of Kristiansand for one week.
