Mariken Kramer - Patterns of Inclusion


01.03 - 17.03 2013
Opening 01.03 7 pm
NB! New address, entrance at the corner of Maridalsveien 3.

In the autumn of 2012 Tenthaus Oslo invited Mariken Kramer to complete her Patterns of Inclusion project with the students at Sofienberg school. A series of workshops led by Kramer resulted in a film adaptation of a Norwegian children's ring game.
This game can be seen as a reflection of the individual as a social being, constantly striving to be part of the game, as part of the community. Patterns of Inclusion, a video installation consisting of two films, visualises an idea of community that is often defined by the concept of exclusion. It suggests the complexity of community feeling, with its promise of security, belonging and love, whilst accommodating exclusion and even abuse.

Mariken Kramer graduated from the Art Academy in Trondheim. Since 2001 she has participated in numerous exhibitions and international film festivals. Her work predominately focuses on the psychological and sociological aspects of the human encounter, as well as the vulnerability of the individual in a community. Mariken Kramer lives and works in Oslo, Norway.

In year 79, a cloud of smoke was said to have stretched 32 km into the air, and the explosion of Mount Vesuvius in Italy "sealed" the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under a layer of ash. The excavations of these cities during the 18th century led the focus to Antiquity and carried it forward beyond the Neoclassical.

The impressions after the excavations and the subsequent Neoclassical surge have become a cultural phenomenon, as well as part of our collective memory - even here in Norway. Nina Torp´s exploration of this areas has resulted in this exhibition that points to layers of parallel eras. These impressions are not from an event or an older historical time but from the contemporary and easily recognisable past.

"You can collect as many pictures as you want. There’s an endless amount of material. Figuratively, what was once molten rock gushing out of a volcano has turned into a floating amount of impressions and images: numerous reproductions of pillars, temples, flora shapes amphitheater. We can look at it of memories of the long-gone. But these memories are not something original. This is how we can read these reproductions / memories that copies of copies of copies. "

Tenthaus invited Nina Torp into its ongoing project with Sofienberg school due to her interesting focus on Western cultural heritage.

Nina Torp is an artist, living in Oslo / Berlin, with art education from the Royal College of Art, London, KIAD, Maidstone and the École des Beaux-Arts, Toulouse.
She has exhibited at several galleries in Norway and abroad.

Filmen Patterns of Inclusion av Mariken Kramer var også utgangspunkt for workshops med elevene ved Sofienberg skole som deltar, kunstneren og representaner fra Tenthaus. Gjennom enkle diskusjoner/samtaler, øvelser og oppgaver prøvde vi å nærme oss vanskelige begreper som fellesskap, tilhørighet, utelukkelse, vennskap, lojalitet, frykt osv. Dette er grunnlegende spørsmål omkring det å være menneske og handler også om våre ønsker om å være del av noe større enn oss slev, det være seg en vennegjeng, familien, et idrettslag, et religiøst fellesskap eller storsamfunnet.

Skoleåret 2011 flyttet Tenthaus inn i nye lokaler ved Sofienberg skole i Oslo.

Vi startet et prosjekt over en lengre periode med 3gb, en skole klasse med unge mellom 16 - 20. Elevene går barneskolen og lærer norsk og vi har truffet dem tettere i perioder hvor vi gjennomfører workshops med klassen.

“Art marks our identity as humans and instils in us a binding sense of community and reciprocity.” Professor Dr. Anne Bamford, 2012
Since 2009 artists Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder have collaborated in the artist initiated project space, Tenthaus Oslo. Through public exhibitions and workshops Eriksen, Moi and Schröder have investigated the role of artists working in schools. They work through a creative partnership contracts and establish themselves in residency in the schools. A group of the school’s children are invited to spend time with the artists and experience art in practical terms. They have also gained insight into positions of the artist in contemporary society. I want to tell you of great things… at the Carl Berner Project Space comments on and show's the work of the artists together with teenagers from Sinsen, Sofienberg and Hersleb schools.
The artists invited Professor Dr. Anne Bamford to write an independent text about art and children that also refers to her UNESCO research on the same theme. A film shows the text being read aloud by students at Sofienberg Upper Secondary School.

In a second work in the exhibition the artists present a new school manifesto on eight large posters. The pupils have contributed with completely new perspectives on how the everyday reality of school should be organised. Pupils at Sinsen Secondary School developed the manifesto when they were asked to imagine and describe their ideal school.

Collaborators in this exhibition are Professor Dr. Anne Bamford, pupils from Sinsen Primary and Secondary school 2009-2010, Hersleb Secondary School 2010-2011 and Sofienberg Upper Secondary School 2011-2012.
I want to tell you of great things… is financed by Arts Council Norway and Kunstløftet.
