Galleri BOX, Gothenburg

19/1–11/2, 2018

Tenthaus artist collective would like you to come and see the results of a moment of trust between Gothenburg’s visual artists and people learning Swedish at «SFI» language school. Local artists have been asked to personally deliver their works to Galleri Box. There, a language class awaits, each student paired up with an artist to unpack and install the art.

Tenthaus Winter Depot mimics the storage space of a larger museum, the shelving units dominate the space. In a depot, material is received, classified, stored, accounted for, issued, maintained, procured, manufactured, assembled, researched, salvaged and disposed of. This notion suggests both transition and storage, where the given perimeters for exhibiting these smaller scale art works are not ones that optimize the works on show, but present the potential of each piece.

Tenthaus Winter Depot aims to create a different kind of meeting between artist and public outside the set prescription of exhibition opening or artist talk. Tenthaus Oslo artist collective opens up for dialogue in another zone, one outside exhibition conventions where the artist hands over her work to a non-expert, not necessarily with an arts background. They are intrigued and excited about the possibilities that this scenario will throw back at them. What can happen when two strangers engage in this project? What will these meetings reveal about the gallery format and the differing roles that these newly formed constellations? How will the set structure of the shelves affect installation when relating to art practice? What will the theme of the conversations be?

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 Galleri Box (2018) and Spring Depot 2018 at Tenthaus Oslo.

Participating artists:
Soile Algeröd, Erik Betshammar, Tobias Birgersson, Amanda Björk, Tom Bogaard, Rigmor Dahlqvist, Ingvild Davidsen, Miriam Colombine, Barbara Ekström, Martin Elterman, Jacqueline Forzelius, Anna Sissela Gustavsson, Eva-Teréz Gölin, Inga- Linn Hardelin, Rebecca Jansson, Haky Jasim, Stephanie Johansson, Johansson & Erwander, Isabella Kalén, Karl Larsson, Sanna Lindholm, Johan Lundqwist, Ann Löwenstein, Olof Marsja, Hannah McDonald, Kristina Nenzén, Matilda Nordenström, Anita Pakkonen Ahl, Lizz Sharr, Jakob Sjöstedt, Maja Sjöström, Joakim Stampe, Emma Ströde, Elin Sundström, Johanna Svensson, Anna Svensson, Peter Trukenbrod, Mina Vattøy, Smi Vukovic, Annika Wennberg, Theo Ågren

Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder are artist based in Oslo who run the Tenthaus Oslo project space. Its 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.

Image from Gaza Surf Club film

Tuesday 23th of Januar 2018

Address: Maridalsveien 3, 0178 Oslo


Welcome to the screening of Gaza Surf Club followed by conversations with some of the surfers in Gaza. Get to know another side of Gaza through the surfers and the beach life.

This first event of It's Hard to be an Arab by Motaz al Habbash, who will have monthly events at Tenthaus Oslo.

About the film: 

Locked away from the rest of the world, the young people of Gaza dream of leaving behind their isolated strip of land. Some find an escape in surfing. The group’s mentor, Abu Jayab, has taught them how to ride the waves. One of the kids, Ibrahim, dreams of learning how to make surfboards and one day opening a surf club. Sabah, whose father taught her to swim and surf, is no longer permitted to play in the water, as it is not considered acceptable behavior by a young woman.

This charming documentary shows how surfing give kids an opportunity to experience a small slice of freedom. With Gaza’s bombed out ruins as a backdrop, we follow them into the waves.

Press Politics Propaganda

Norway is ranked second in the world for press freedom, dating back to 1814, but with worldwide media companies being privately owned, what exactly does this freedom mean. In the UK privately owned press has a dominating right wing agenda, where contributing columnists include the leaders of outwardly racist parties. Freedom of press, suggests freedom of speech, but the twin of this freedom is hate speech. In a careful crafted ‘people orientated’ media, how can we as consumers begin to dissect the news material set before us, and remove the bias from the facts.

The exhibition brings together the connecting threads of politics and the agenda of the printed press, with intersecting works focusing on the forthcoming Norwegian election and select media campaigns. At particular moments during the exhibition performances will activate the props and objects found within the exhibition installation, developing a narrative through provocation.

Amelia Beavis-Harrison is an artist working predominantly with performance installation and video. Her works stem from a deep rooted anger with the current status-quo, often commenting upon politicised situations that are particularly provoking. In 2015 Amelia graduated with an MA from Kunst Akademiet in Oslo, since then she has exhibited and performed internationally in institutions such as Prague National Gallery (2015), Munchmuseet i bevegelse (2016), Luda, St Petersberg (2016), Floodlight Foundation, Delhi (2016). Later this year Amelia will be developing a piece about women breaking out of traditional roles for Creative Black Country, UK.

This exhibition is supported by Norske Billedkunstnere (NBK) and Kulturrådet.
