The exhibition Something has to be done presents new as well as earlier work by the Norwegian artist and journalist Charlotte Thiis-Evensen. It gathers pieces from a period of time when she worked with her own family as a motif in her film and installation, parts of her first work Dominans (2001), video projects from the last few years and a brand new installation regarding labour in Moss.
Thiis-Evensen is thematically concerned with the topic of work as a condition of a good life. For Something has to be done she presents her new work created in Moss, where she explores how a sole proprietorship can be an example of how specific labour traditions and knowledge is about to disappear from public awareness. The piece is an installation (containing sound and machines), but also a film about the proprietorship which will be shown in Moss By og Industrimuesum, a museum dealing with local labour tradition and history.
The exhibition is Galleri F 15’s contribution to the celebration as the city of Moss celebrates it’s 300th anniversary in 2020.
Charlotte Thiis-Evensen is exhibiting a monumental work at the spunt wall by Moss Harbour in the same period as the exhibition at Galleri F 15. This platform is made possible through cooperation between Galleri F 15 and BaneNOR.
Curator: Maria C. Havstam
