Sculptor SPACEBRAIN To Host 'Art From Hell' Exhibition At INFERNO

Sculptor Ren M. Hamel, better known as Spacebrain, will host a special event at this year's Inferno festival in Oslo. He will open his new studio to the public for the first time on Saturday, March 22 between the hours of 12:00 and 17:00. His sculptures, including new works, will be displayed inside the aptly named Spacebunker "300 square meters of pure evil a full terror package of audiovisual nightmares," to quote the man himself.

Hamel, well known for his startling stage designs for bands like MAYHEM, as well as his sculptures, is also a musician, playing bass in SKITLIV, the black/doom/noise project of front man Maniac, which includes SHINING's Niklas Kvarforth on guitar, and will himself take to the stage during the event when both SKITLIV and SHINING will perform a mini-concert.

"I wanted to make this something special, not just a straight exhibition, or a straight concert, but something that combined all the facets of my art, and this seemed the perfect way to do it," commented the sculptor. "Entry to the event itself is free, and we have built a bar, so there will be food and drink available, and we will have special guests turning up for signing sessions, so we're aiming at an informal, enjoyable and very interesting atmosphere, both for those taking part, and for the fans."

The Spacebunker is situated at Stockholmsgata 12 in Oslo. Directions and further information about the event can be found at
