" ARNE RYGG "

Arne Rygg creates site-specific art projects and his work ranges across a wide variety of media. Depending on the site and situation, he often uses visual art as a means of exploring issues on identity and language.

Rygg is co-founder of Kunstjournalen B-post, VISP, B-open and Kunstgarasjen. He has experience with public art commissions as consultant for KORO - Public Art Norway.

Rygg is member of Bergen Ateliergruppe, Kunstgarasjen, Bildende kunstneres forening i Hordaland, Norske Billedkunstnere, Unge Kunstneres Samfund, BONO and VISP.
