21st of August – 6th of September 2015, in Archipelago
Wetlands is an exhibition made up of a drawing, a collage and three texts – or six texts, depending on how one looks at it. None of them is about the humid place where they were conceived.
Archipelago is a small, flexible platform for showing individual works and installations in a focused but open environment. Located on the ground floor of Hordaland Kunstsenter, adjacent to a larger, more formal exhibition space, archipelago works with the constraint of limited physical space in order to explore the changing modalities of artworks in the age of virtual space. Archipelago is programmed with short lead times for each new project, with the intention of reinserting curatorial agility and real-time engagement into the institution. This initiative follows a different schedule to Hordaland kunstsenter’s main exhibition programme, and is conceived as a group of ‘thought islands’ appearing in time. These manifestations will be mapped in Hordaland kunstsenter’s website, and will also be periodically surveyed through public conversations and other events.
