The well known Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic is now represented at the Contemporary Art Projects at the BGE.
A unique artist
with unique portraits.
The gallery has a very nice architecture and is situated next to the Catholic Church.
It looked like it was a popular place to visit on a Sunday.
Nice to meet people who are eager to tell about the art and the artist too.
(This is : Portraits with Onions, from 2008.)

Happy times and good memories.
Isn't that what childhood should include?
This is Gabriel and his mum Ana who I met out on our morning walk today.
They came to Stavanger 4 years ago from Lisbon / Portugal, together with Gabriel's dad who is working for the council.
Gabriel spoke Norwegian and is going to a Norwegian school. Mum who is actually from Funchal / Madeira spoke English very well. They were out in town having a good time together.
Nice meeting you two!

Stavange has got a wonderful place for Contemporary Art.
BGE Contemporary Art Projects
It is situated next to the Catholic Church at Kannik, and has not only great art, but also great architecture.
They also have a good collection of Art Books for sale.
New exhibition coming soon.
I will promise to post some art next time.
You might have been visiting it before the new building, when it was at Tollboden ?
Anyway, hope you have had a nice and happy weekend!

Friends out for lunch at the fish market restaurant.
My food was tasty (could have had more prawns on the sandwich though).
Anyway, lots of yummy taste, and nicely presented.
Unfortunately, the place was noisy with people in and out, carrying ordered boxes with sea food, noisy music and air-conditioning, plus noise from the kitchen and the shop.
The restaurants phone rang again and again and again. Please answer it!
New staff, who struggled with the menu as well as the language.
On top of that, only one of us managed to pay. We were sitting an awful long time waiting to pay, so at the end walked up to the bar area to pay.
The coffee was good and if you are seated with a view out to the boats and harbour area it can be pleasant.

Another cold sunny day.
Today we had a big cruise ship visiting Stavanger with British tourist who were on a 12 days trip up to Tromsø and Alta (North of Norway) before the last stop, Stavanger.
We noticed lots of the passengers out and about with their cameras.
This afternoon they left for Southampton, where they will arrive on Monday.

They looked happy, even on a grey Sunday morning in town.
This is Ildi and her mother Aranka from Hungary.
They had just arrived from Budapest / Hungary and were now having a quick look around Stavanger, before going by bus to Haugesund where they are staying until later this week.
And they have also planned a day trip to Utsira.
I asked how they found information about where to go.
Google... was the answer. So I guess guidebooks might be OUT these days.
I hope they will have lots of good memories from their holiday.
Nice meeting you!

I will never forget what happened here in Norway on July 22. 2011
69 people lost their lives on the island. Total 77 people.
A Norwegian man had planned and carried out these two evil attacks by himself.
This week a new Norwegian film had it's premier, and the film is about what happened at UTØYA, the island where so many young people lost their lives.
People are saying that this is a strong film.
I have not seen it. I guess the intense marketing, with posters perhaps in all bus shelters, will make this a film that many will go and see.

This is Elisabeth Nessler and Bjørn Sola together with their two dogs.
Not a common thing to see, a Norwegian guy wearing a kilt (on yet another snowy day!)
He told me that he actually had five kilts...
So perhaps he will inspire more Norwegian men to dress the same way?
Great to see a man who is man enough to dress just the way HE likes.
Together with a good friend I was out walking on the beach, before celebrating "International Women's Day" with some nice food at the hotel on the beach.
Have a nice evening, everyone!
