Rotten food in the hotel corridor
On Monday 16 September THE THIEF and The Apartment launched their corridor gallery with photographs by award-winning photographer Klaus Pichler. In the exhibition "One Third" he criticises the world's throw-away culture through powerful photographs.
A third of all food produced is thrown away. A large proportion of the world's population suffers from famine at the same time. The exhibition "One Third" focusses on the gap between global food production and the lack of food.
Klaus Pichler's photographs are powerful. The are provocative and make people think. At first glance you see food we recognise, but the rotten truth gradually dawns on you. THE THIEF & The Apartment are happy to be able to address this important subject through photographic art in the hotels new corridor gallery.
The sales exhibition is open to the public from Tuesday 17 September and lasts until 14 October.
THE THIEF is launching its new corridor gallery on the third storey of the hotel. "One Third'" is the first of several exhibitions THE THIEF will host in partnership with The Apartment, and we will have exhibitions by both famous and unknown photographers in the near future. The hotel feature art extensively, also through the close partnership with The Astrup Fearnley Museum. A photo gallery in a hotel corridor is something completely new.
The Apartment's partnership with THE THIEF gives the nomadic gallery a home and a golden opportunity for a partnership with Norway's most stylish and art-focussed hotel. This will expose photographic art to a wide audience on Tjuvholmen, a location with a high density of galleries.
The Apartment is a gallery in constant movement and exhibits photographs from Norway and abroad. The Apartment is run by Massimo Leardini, Marcel Leliënhof and Torgeir Hjetland.
