More than twenty art spaces from Scandinavia present contemporary art projects at a five day long fair. Frame and process are key elements in this year’s fair. All participating artist are invited to work with their stands in means of building, constructing an deconstructing throughout the duration of the fair, resulting in an ever changing structure. With this year’s performance program I have focused on activating the more than twenty different stands. The key words process and frame will manifest themselves when I invite the participating artist to set their stands in motion using themselves, their frameworks and their many collaborators. To go with these many happenings I have invited curators and other performers to give their perspective and input through art and research. My main focus in working with this project have been to create an atmosphere where both the participating artist and the audience get a little closer to the many different practices that come together for this fair .
