New album from Magne Furuholmen
Monday, March 22nd, 2004

Magne Furuholmen was chosen to open the Carnegie Art Award 2004 in Oslo, and at the opening at Kunstnernes Hus tonight, Tuesday March 17, he performed three new songs.
The songs he performed will be on his forthcoming solo album this autumn. Most of the album is already recorded, with Martin Terefe and Magne as producers. The album has been recorded in London, Nashville and Oslo.
"The new songs are based on a personal expression," Magne says. "When I first started working with them, I didnt think about it as a solo project, but they just developed that way. When you work just by yourself, the expression becomes more personal and more vulnerable."

Magne Furuholmen - a glass extreme!
Friday, May 23rd, 2003

Magne FuruholmenMags has exhibitions in Copenhagen and in Oslo simultaneously. Both are exhibitions of his glass work; he has created huge jars and paintings in glass. The Norwegian paper Dagbladet interviewed Magne in Copenhagen about the exhibitions.
"This is extreme sport," Mags says to Dagbladet; he is talking about what a nerve-wracking experience it is to work with glass. "Glass is an extremely fragile material," he says. This is one of the things that attracted him to work with it. Mags primary interest was to find out how large you could make jars in glass. "This is the first time they have blown glass containers in this size," he tells Dagbladet. "Its on the edge of what is technically possible. When I work with a new material, Im curious on how far I can stretch the limits. Its a curse I have," he smiles.
The exhibition at the Museum of Modern Glass Art in Copenhagen opened on Wednesday, May 21, and the next day Magne went back to Norway to work on his exhibition at Hadeland Glassverk, which opened on Thursday, May 22.

Some of his work will also be displayed in Petrozavodsk (15/05/03 - 12/06/03) and St. Petersburg (18/09/03 - 11/10/03) in connection with the exhibition "Reflections in a New Nordic Light".

"This has been a year off from music," Mags says. But he doesnt want to talk about a-ha now. "I do work with music parallel to art. But I work with so many different expressions that I prefer not to mix it."
