Hei V from B-OPEN, Natland SB has been very silent this summer towards you and now we break the silence with kind of sad news: participating in B-OPEN has become complicated. So complicated that we feel we are forced to withdraw.
The months October and November we will live in Rome Italy and so we are not around in Bergen.
Natland SB also talked with Bergen Arkitekt Skole director and was not impressed with her enthusiasm for the Hall of Shame. We think our proposal was strong and to come up with an alternative strategy would be less strong.
Natland SB apologizes and wishes B-OPEN a good time and for us another time. Or... maybe you have a budget for our flying tickets and then we could still do it. And w
Hilsen, H N a director managing and Ron Sluik the disposable curator.

Hi H and Ron,
I hope you had a wonderful summer and that you are excited about the seemingly stressful fall! Myself, I feel I could have had some more sun of course, but else the summer was great :)
It's always sad to withdraw, but that's how things are some times. B-open does not have the economy to fly you in for the event. However, I hope you have the possibility to participate at in B-open in the future, and that you will continue your work in Bergen and the rest of the internet-world with Gallery SB Natland.
Good luck with your trip and work and everything,
best wishes from V.

1000 tak for your understanding, V. Natland SB will continue the activities!
Maybe somehow you can put us in the B-OPEN list of galleries and artists as an active member of the kommune so that people can visit us online?
Hilsen, Natland SB

We can of course post your link on the B-open website under your profile as a gallery, that's actually a very good idea. Then you are participating :)
If you would like to do that, please send me some info on the gallery and some images, and pay the fee for participation of 300,- to account number 0539 5978529 (the fee is for organisation, info-material etc.)
I hope you too think of this as a good solution!

Thank you V for reminding us our galleri is disposable.
