Gurdish Haugsdal, also known as Dish, is a multidisciplinary artist from London, now living and working in Bergen. Her work often depicts women from a feminist perspective, juxtaposed with distinctively dark lines and tones.
Dish installed a series of hand-painted, second-hand ceramics around Grünerløkka for LL 2022, breathing new life into old objects. The ceramics she finds are painted with new motifs and installed in public space. She often thinks about the past life of the object she uses as her canvas while working: “It saddens me to see how many valuable objects reside in landfills. In a world of disposable consumerism, I always look at an item and consider how it can be rescued, reused, recycled and reinvented. As the saying goes "one person’s rubbish is another person’s treasure."”
