22 June – 29 September 2013
While art professionals – and lovers – from all over the world did their bi-annual pilgrimage to Venice in summer 2013 to get an overview of the global state of the arts, the seventh Momentum Biennial in the Norwegian town Moss, about a 40 minutes train ride from Oslo, insisted on its regional focus by offering a sample of contemporary art from the Nordic countries for those who prefer a more intimate venue.
This year the curators Power Ekroth and Erlend Hammer proposed the exhibitions Dare 2 Love Yourself and Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.
PALAIS DE TOKYO, PARIS, 21 NOVEMBER 2012
Event organized in association with the traveling sound art exhibition HORIZONIC on view from 16 November to 14 December 2012 at ésam de Caen/Cherbourg, France.
Two Norwegian artists of the exhibition – Amund Sjølie Sveen and Elin Øyen Vister with her group WeDoMagic – did a performance and a concert during a special evening organized with the support of the Norwegian Embassy in France and Fondation Louis Roederer.
UNFOLDING SPACE THROUGH SOUND ART
In 2012 ARTnord organized a touring exhibition, accompanied by a special issue. The aim of the project was to discover an active, committed and unusual sound art scene from the extreme North Atlantic fringes. Whether they amplify the perception of a place, render a new type of silence or speak in unheard voices from the living realm, the works gathered for this exhibition helped rediscover space through the experience of sound. Close or distant, personal or political, human or animal, a gripping phenomenon is arising. An invitation to discover unexpected signals from the Arctic horizon.
