Lars Laumann, Shut Up Child, This Ain't Bingo, 2009, video, 58 minutes

Fandom, obsession, objectophilia and love, both romantic and divine, have all formed part of Norwegian artist Lars Laumann’s ongoing project, exploring people and phenomena that exist on the margins of contemporary society. His latest installment, the documentary video Shut up Child, This Ain’t Bingo (2009), examines the relationship between Norwegian artist Kjersti Andvig and her artistic and romantic partner Carlton Turner, a prisoner on death row in Texas.

Laumann was born in Oslo, Norway. He currently lives and works in Berlin. His work Morrissey Foretelling the Death of Diana has also been shown at White Columns, New York in 2007 and Berlinmuren was included in the 5th Berlin Biennale in 2008. He was the headline visual artist at the Galway Arts Festival in Ireland. Other recent exhibitions include Monumento Mori, Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst, Oslo in 2008, There Is Always A Machine Between Us, SF Cameraworks, San Francisco, The Back Room/Société Anonyme, Kadist Art Foundation, Paris and EAST International, Norwich, all in 2007.
