This winter, Kunstnernes Hus has the pleasure of presenting the international group show Holding Pattern. Welcome to the opening night with an opening ceremony, a performance by Ingri Fiksdal and free entry to the exhibition.
The exhibition will be opened by the curators Tom McCarthy and Anne Hilde Neset, and the participating artists will be present.
About the Exhibition
What are the choreographies in which our lives are held and what rhythms, or algorithms, drive these? How do these play out in historical, political and cultural terms? And can art, literature, filmmaking, or music draw them out, make them visible, legible, audible, or even contestable? These are some of the themes and questions that the exhibition will explore.
With works by Stan Douglas, Harun Farocki, Ingri Fiksdal, Åke Hodell, Stefan Panhans & Andrea Winkler, Susan Philipsz and Elizabeth Price. Curated by Tom McCarthy and Anne Hilde Neset.
The exhibition is supported by the Goethe-Institut.
The Control Panel
Save the date! On Saturday 26 November, a one-day assembly will be held in connection with the exhibition. Beau Travail, Claire Denis’ landmark balletic study of the drill patterns, social configurations and lethal pasodobles at play during a period in the life of a French Foreign Legion corps, will be shown alongside Berlin Prize-winner Omer Fast’s 5000 Feet Is the Best, a looping portrait of a remote-control drone pilot. Fast will be present for a director's talk. Farocki’s widow and frequent collaborator Antje Ehmann will present her performance-lecture Labour in a Single Shot, and the exhibition’s artists and curators will hold conversations punctuated by short screenings.
