23rd June

Music and Art – working with artists

One of Peter’s most intense collaborations in recent years has been with the great living Norwegian artist Jan Groth. Their work together resulted in a large-scale cycle ‘A Futhork for Jan Groth’, commissioned by the Bergen International Festival and premiered at Kunsthallen Bergen alongside a major retrospective of Groth’s works. Their collaboration reached far beyond the studio, to Spitzbergen and Minnesota, and the project continues to expand. Click here for film link.
