Abundance, the 45th Tendencies Biennale for Nordic Contemporary Crafts.
The 45th Tendencies Biennial embraces abundance, a way of perceiving the world that cherishes the plurality of lifeforms, relationships, and stories. The broader cultural context for the exhibition is the need to reshape values in the era of climate breakdown and ecological collapses. True sustainability cannot be achieved through preservation only; it also calls for transformations.
Surfacing solids by Petrine Vinje & Symbiotic Stories by Jacob Oredsson, Two high profile exhibitions are open to the public at Gallery F15.
22 October 2022 – 22 January 2023
In this exhibition, a museum artefact serves as an aggregator of artworks and research concerning cultural memories derived from archaeology, architecture, materials, science, and myths. The museum artefact, a lead amulet from the Middle Ages, is disseminated by means of freestanding sculptures, installations and a film.
