Terje Tolleshaug (NO)
Terje Tolleshaug is a Norwegian film artist currently based in Oslo. His main source of inspiration is nature itself and the space that exists in the perceived distinction between natural and unnatural. For him, everything is nature. Growing up on an island on the west coast of Norway Terje spent his childhood outside. He has always felt close to the wilderness and finds pleasure in rainy days with strong winds. Yet in his artistic work there is a striking sense of calm. The small details in nature play the biggest part in his works. You will often find quiet scenes with beautiful close-up footage from nature accompanied by electronic music and surprising elements of animation. Although beautifully made and characterized by a somewhat melancholic atmosphere, humor plays an important role in all of his movies. Trying to find the meaning behind his works? There isn´t necessarily one.
