12 June – 10 October 2021
curatorial concept: Théo-Mario Coppola
associate curator outreach: Håkon Lillegraven
The practitioners and practitioner collectives will present projects at various venues and sites on the island of Jeløya, in the city of Moss and in the Oslo Fjord, Norway. Emancipation, resilience, reparation, and the formation and transmission of alternative narratives all inform the practitioners’ work. Their projects–a significant part of which will be newly-conceived or site-specific will explore the intricate relations between aesthetic and social issues. They will also reverberate communities’ concerns, like the use of deliberative processes, the defence of ecosystems and the advancement of rights.
