Menno de Nooijer

Dutch artist Menno de Nooijer spent two weeks in Dovre in March 2019 making a short film using pixilation in the cold winter weather.

Menno de Nooijer says that ‘…being an artist in residence for 14 days at was a unique experience. Not only because of the inspiring energy of Anita but also because of the other people working in the studio and also because of the unique place Dovre. Coming from The Netherlands it is very clear to see what I like about Dovre: the amount of trees, nature and space, snow and cold weather conditions in winter, mountains… All these elements helped me a lot in my creative thoughts. 14 days were not enough to be able to make everything I wanted but it was enough time to make me realize that I have to go back and work on more and different projects. During my stay I got the idea for a short animation film that I have to make in a place like Dovre.’
