About the artist:

Born Oslo 1953, A K Dolven lives and works in Oslo and Lofoten. Graduated from École des Beaux-Arts Aix-en-Provence (1972–1973); École National Supérieur des Beaux-Arts, Paris (1978–1979); Statens Kunstakademi, Oslo (1982–1986); and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs grant, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (1987–1988).

Dolven’s practice involves a variety of media; painting, photography, performance, installation, film, and sound. Recurring themes in her production are the representation of natural forces and their resonance with human sensibilities. Her work alternates between the monumental and the minimal, the universal and the intimate. Interpersonal relations and interactions are central to her practice, and many of her performance-based works involve collaborations with other people.

Her work is held in public and private collections including Art Institute of Chicago, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Hoffmann Collection and Sammlung Goetz.

Selected exhibitions include Brainwashed, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2020); Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Trondheim (2019); Willumsen og den Kvindelige Model – fra Klassisk til Queer, J.F. Willumsens Museum, Frederikssund (2019); The Quebec City Biennial: Small Between the Stars, Large Against the Sky, Québec (2019); to you 1994-2018, Galerie Anhava, Helsinki (2018); Tours voices, CCC, Tours (2017); IKON Gallery, Birmingham (2015); New Nordic – Architecture & Identity, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk (2012); looking for balance, Platform China, Beijing (2010); ahead, Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum, Tromsø (2009); Schmerz / Pain, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2007); saturday night, KIASMA, Helsinki (2007); KunsthalleBern, Bern (2001); and Philadephia Museum of Art (1999).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
