Curated by Helga Christoffersen, the event was part of the Nordic Chart Art Fair‘s ‘Chart Emerging’ section and was the result of a three-year project researching the work of emerging artists from Nordic countries; ’emerging’ referring to “a budding moment of artistic development,” rather than age or other positional factors.
The title of the exhibition is taken from Amalie Smith’s book I Civil (2012), which looks at the porousness of the body and what it is that connects and separates us, and considers how language and the concept of self “can also be expanded or broken down in an effort to express identification, empathy, love, and belonging.”**
