ARKIVETs exhibition project is titled Is this my place? The theme is “Traces”.
We all seek belonging. With references from our own lives - places we've been to, or shadows of events - we create atmospheres of where we want to be, or try to escape from. The topic is articulated in jewelry, each member contributing with their own individual approaches, tastes and interpretations. An overall intention is to develop an atmosphere in the given exhibition spaces in a manner that provide the viewer associations to their own affections.
A sound loop made by Tor Jørgensen follows the exhibition. ARKIVET is launching a catalogue that is based on visual images from their first exhibition presentation. Texts that reinforce our concept are written by the philosopher Mikkel B. Tin, and by the filmmaker and author Dag Johan Haugerud.
The exhibition and catalogue is sponsored by funds from The Norwegian Association for Arts and Craft, The Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Berlin and The Royal Norwegian Consulate in Munich.
