MOMENTUM 12 Biennale participants announced
MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather
10 June – 8 October 2023
Galleri F 15
Albyalléen 60, 1519 Moss, Norway
The art collective, Tenthaus, which is curating MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather, announces the participating artists for the 12th edition of the biennale, which opens June 10, 2023 at Galleri F 15 in Norway.
The collective has collaborated together in various constellations since 2009. Characterised by an open, process-oriented form of participation and collaboration, its focus is on local contexts, exploring collectivity and inclusion through different forms of engagement. Tenthaus continuously reimagines itself, investigating what it means to be artists working with the public and what makes a relevant, socially engaged practice.
“Tenthaus as an art collective is moving toward a model of polyphonic co-authorship. Polyphonic suggests the harmonic possibility of producing more than one independent melody at a time in a single composition. To a great extent, this is how Tenthaus functions; each individual practice both resonates and amplifies itself through collective work. We produce and involve many themes and curatorial ideas at the same time. In this way, we are able to explore a myriad of concurrences; subjects and artistic forms each carrying resonance and meaning,” explains the collective.
For the biennale, Tenthaus practises a gathering methodology. The intention is to begin from the practices of the artists they invite and to work from there, then coming together to find the common threads of connection. This practice expands throughout the collective’s ecosystem, both locally and internationally, to include artists, designers, editors, newspapers, artist-run galleries, international biennales, and local schools to share a variety of art projects over the course of the biennale. Through this process, MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather explores what intuitively comes out of gathering people, places and times.
