BOCA RATON, FLA.- Trine Lise Nedreaas: The Entertainers is a mesmerizing new video art exhibition that also features online viewing, enjoyed virtually from anywhere in the world, presented by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, the museum's Senior Curator, this video art exhibition is on view until January 3rd and the art videos in this show may be viewed online virtually from anywhere in the world here.

The films in this new exhibition comment on our desire for fame and admiration from others, reflecting our current compulsions with social media.

One of the videos in the Museum's exhibition -- Pulse -- was seen by millions at New York's Times Square when it was selected by Times Square Arts NYC to be showcased on the massive Jumbotron screens in Times Square.

The Mask, another video in this museum exhibition by the Norwegian artist Trine Lise Nedreaas, eerily shows the clown character gradually creating his mask. The mask is used for physical and spiritual protection.

The Mask video touches upon who we choose to be and how we are involved in our own destiny. Through the mask, human emotions are reflected and ventilated.

“I make films that portray individuals, often alone. Determined and driven ─ but always trying,” said Nedreaas.

The eight video installations in the museum exhibition include clowns, a contortionist, a sword swallower, a hula-hoop champion, a ventriloquist dummy, a maestro of smoke-filled bubbles, and an elderly woman singing off-key to the Frank Sinatra version of the song I Did it My Way.

Trine Lise Nedreaas is perhaps best known for her intriguing and beautiful films of lone performers. Through strictly directed, symbolically charged documentary based films of individuals, Nedreaas shines a light on the large and the strange variety of human endeavors.

"I am interested in people's drive to carry on and get out of bed every morning. I admire the enthusiasts, the people who try again and again, often banging their head against the wall," says Trine Lise Nedreaas. "The different ways in which people find purpose, be it through sausage eating, weight lifting, singing or acting as corpses, or through mapping the universe."

"I sympathize with stuttering, stumbling and singing out of tune and I am fascinated by the weird and the beautiful. By focusing on the specific and the intimate, I try to illuminate the large and the universal," adds Nedreaas.

Drawing from a long history of portraiture, her often humorous work is inspired by the lives of people through whose ideas, talents and demeanor she seeks a deeper reflection on the human condition. Nedreaas’ performers are filmed removed from the audiences and spectacles that usually surround them, left in a timeless space with only themselves and their act remaining.

The work of Trine Lise Nedreaas has been shown at the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; MoMA PS1, New York; Kunstwerke, Berlin; Palazzo delle Arti, Napoli; Everson Museum, NY; Kunstverein Schwerin; New Center for Contemporary Art, Louisville; MACRO, Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Rome; Art Pavilion, Zagreb; Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo; ARGOS Centre for Art and Media, Brussels; the Boca Raton Museum of Art; and Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, among others. Her work is represented in public and private collections worldwide.
