What would we like you to do to? 
We are not looking for the perfect work but a work that shows that you are working towards something. It can be a small object, a sketch, a model, a work that is a prototype or just something you never thought you would show but now have the opportunity. 
Find an art work lying around in your studio that will fit into Tenthaus Spring Depot at Tenthaus Oslo. The shelves have uniform spaces of 77 x 40.5 x 35 cm. 

Submit an image of the work and information of size, title, insurance value, your name and short description of the work to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Only one work per artist. It’s important that the text about the work is short (max 100 words) and easy to understand. The text can be in either Norwegian (preferably) or in English. Send your application as a PDF in max 2 A4.

About the project 
We need artists, the experts of the art world, to take part in an artwork where we envisage as a moment of trust between the artist and a person with arbitrary knowledge of contemporary art. 
The works on show in Tenthaus Spring Depot will be part of a whole physical structure filling Tenthaus Oslo. Mimicking the storage space of a larger museum, the shelving unit will dominate the space. A depot is a place in which supplies are stored for distribution. In a depot, material is received, classified, stored, accounted for, issued, maintained, procured, manufactured, assembled, researched, salvaged and disposed of. The notion of the depot suggests a state of both transition and storage, where the given perimeters offered for exhibiting smaller scale art works are not ones that optimize the works on show, but rather present the potential of each piece. 

During the process of installing the artworks, there will be possibilities to explore new understandings of the installation process itself and a way in which art is understood. We hope to encourage dialogues about what your art is and how it is shown, in collaboration with the other participants. 
We will document the process so that it will be available for the opening. 

The artworks for the Tenthaus Spring Depot will be selected by Tenthaus Artist Collective with input from Hersleb school students. 

Personal delivery 
The selected works must be delivered personally by the artist to Tenthaus Oslo, Maridalsveien 3, at one of these scheduled times – 
Friday 16 March kl. 12.15-13.45
Monday 19 March kl. 9.00-11.30 
Tuesday 20 March kl. 09.00-11.30 

Mandate to install 
The artist will give her artwork to a student from Hersleb school who will be responsible for installing your work in a shelving system. 

Tenthaus Oslo is a small space and has no capacity to store works. You must confirm that you are able to collect your work

Tenthaus Oslo is a project space initiated by Oslo based artists Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder. Tenthaus Oslo's profile is characterized by an open, process-oriented form of participation from an internationally orientated group of artists. The context of contemporary art practice is re-examined through a broader field of activity with exhibitions, workshops, artist's talks and live performances. 
More information about Tenthaus: 

The shelving units, were originally part of an artwork by Stefan Schröder entitled Archive, my thoughts, your actions (2013) exhibited at the Vigeland Museum as part of the Norwegian Sculpture Biennial. In 2015, Tenthaus Oslo commissioned Rachel Dagnell to curate Spring Depot, an exhibition that filled the shelves with works by artists working locally in Oslo. The concept has now been redeveloped to include Winter Depot at Gallery Box in Gothenburg (2018) and Spring Depot (2018) at Tenthaus Oslo.
