Marvin Gaye Chetwynd
Iron Age Pasta Necklace Workshop

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (b. 1973, UK) works with exuberant collective performances and films merging irreverence and joie de vivre. Celebrating popular culture, she has adopted elements for example from Michael
 Jackson’s Thriller, Miyazaki’s Catbus, and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

Inaugurating the year-long program of PRAXES at Bergen Assembly 2016, Chetwynd invites audiences to a cruel craft party, Iron Age Pasta Necklace Workshop at Landmark, Bergen Kunsthall. Originally heralding the artist’s mother in the central role of the “Discerning Eye,” the event is a participatory, joyous Iron Age X Factor glue gun showdown.

Afterwards, Nabovarsel DJ and writer Øde Øyvind presents oddities and classics from 40 years of dance music, followed by Bergen legend DJ Bjørn Torske, who recently released albums for the cred-label Smalltown Supersound.
