Steinar Haga Kristensen’s ULTRAIDENTIFICATION PAVILION gathers around the avatarization of a humanoid figure that constitutes the main motif in the intaglio print series  Jubileum 2020 (2020). The avatar is placed and programmed for limited interaction in a virtual total world, constructed from digital reproductions of the singular works in the exhibition. Intaglio print, oil painting, ceramics, fresco and sgraffito painting, glass mosaics, crocheted children’s clothes, lamps, furniture, etc. act as components in an idealized public space where you can interact with other avatars in an eternal game. The game annexes and anticipates the aesthetic impulse of the viewer and leads her through a world that hyper-contextualizes the relative conditions of things and the viewers relevance.

Steinar Haga Kristensen’s art is characterized by an extensive productivity unlimited by technique and medium, but most of all by the artist’s tireless repetition and perversion of the artist’s work in ever new constellations. The core activity of this seemingly simple gesture is to transcend the dialectical field of aesthetics, in order to allow a radical exploration of the core of human creative potency.
