Opening reception Thursday 21th August 7 - 9 pm
21.8 - 7.9 2014
Open Friday / Saturday / Sunday 12 - 4 pm
Helen Eriksen and Germain Ngoma have collaborated on a site-specific installation in three exhibition rooms at Tenthaus Oslo. Workshops and dialogs with participants at Sofienberg school have taken place over a three month period and have been instrumental in the development of the exhibition.
Their work is based on the students´ own photographic analysis of the theme of transit during workshops at Sofienberg school. The development of the project has been focused on the concept of transit situation - movement between one place and another – where are we now and how did we get there?

Eriksen and Ngoma view the school as a place of transition where students are being prepared for life beyond the school gates. The participants are moving into the final stages of their formal education and are focused on their own after-life.

The first flag related to this land dates back to the monarch periods of the XIV century. Since then, different flags saw the sky in a process which carried out several debates, publications and proposals, including a green and grey one promoted by Christian Frederik in 1814, just a few months before the inclusion of an article expressing that Norway should have its own flag determined by law. The flag was selected in 1821, but its complete adoption in land and all seas wasn’t until the beginning of the next century, in which it was also banned during the German occupation of Norway. After those years, the use of the flag has grown exponentially as well as immigration. According to SSB, last year more than 10% of the total population is currently member of religious and life stance communities outside the Church of Norway.

As flags, people and lands never stand still, and thus not history.
