EN: Street Art Oslo is proud to present Reminders, a solo exhibition by Neslihan Ramzi.
Reminders is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the artist and ad-busting collective Subvertising Norway, consisting of a city-wide ad takeover and separate exhibition of paintings, drawings, prints, textiles, stickers and animations made by Ramzi.
For the project, Ramzi has created four new digital artworks addressing issues of social justice and community (see separate handout) which were installed in Grønland and Bjørvika by Subvertising Norway. These are displayed alongside documentation from the ‘action’, which is crucial given the short-lived nature of the interventions.
The rest of the exhibition is dedicated to showcasing artworks from Ramzi’s past, which are the foundation for her practice today. This includes some of her earliest works on canvas and paper; the animations ‘I Didn’t Have Time For This’, ‘Running From The Police In Space’ and ‘Ancestors’; plus a collection of radical literature published by Color Collective Press (on loan from the activist library Assata, of which Ramzi is co-founder).
Neslihan Ramzi (she/her) is an Iraqi-Turkmen graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Community and social justice are central to her art. In addition to her practice, she is the co-founder of the activist library and publisher Assata and member of Skater Uktis – a global Muslim female led skate crew. Neslihan holds a bachelor's degree in graphic design and illustration from kunsthøgskolen. She currently lives and works in Oslo.
