An exhibition of monumental, temporary sculpture by residents Sayed Sattar Hasan (UK), Gereon Krebber (DE), Kjetil D. Kristensen (NO), Mathew Lacosse (CA), Claudia Mann (DE), Evgeniya Martirosyan (RU/IR), and Catriona Robertson (UK), Patricia Sandonis (DE/ES).
Monumentality and ephemerality, improvisation and scale, and the parameters and protocols of sculpture have been central starting points for an intensive three week project developed by this transnational group of artists. Using a varied and unconventional selection of materials plus technical support from the Fellesverkstedet team, the group have responded to the challenge of producing work that is monumental in impact yet temporary in nature within the dramatic dystopian setting of a rundown former factory in Oslo's Grønland district.
The exhibition forms part of PRAKSIS’s eleventh residency Monumental — Temporal, developed with Gereon Krebber in collaboration with Fellesverkstedet. It will showcase the physical outcomes of the residents’ work, play, and experimentation, and celebrate Fellesverkstedet’s final event at Urtegata: after seven years, they are moving to a new home at Seilduksgata 29 in Oslo’s Grünerløkka district. This showcase will only be open on 11th and 12th September – don’t miss it!
