Tenthaus shows the video Own words

Welcome to the opening of Tenthaus Oslo new art space in Oslo on December 7th 2012 at 7pm. Bar 7 – 9 pm

Own Words - a video work by Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder with text by Ane Hjort Guttu.
We see a young woman sitting in a classroom reading aloud from a manuscript. She reads about her everyday life at school and her relationship to art and music. She steps out of role when she introduces a song that she describes at special. The song is about the life of a child in a country at war.

Own Words is Eriksen, Moi and Schröder's second collaboration to focus on the function of art to schoolchildren through commissioned texts. The first video I want to tell you of great things ... by Anne Bamford, UNESCO researcher was shown in the Skulpturarena Øst project space in Oslo earlier this year.
