A conversation with Power Ekroth, co-curator of the upcoming 7th Momentum Biennial (Moss, Norway)
  • Part 1 of 2

  • Part 2 of 2

In this conversation, Power Ekroth talks about the working methods that she and Erlend Hammer have when they do projects together. “We have completely different perspectives on how we look upon art. We sort of disagree on everything.  For me this is super fan, because to disagree with someone who is super sharp, I have to be as sharp myself, or try to at least. We have developed this sort of dialectical way of thinking and working” and the upcoming Momentum represents an opportunity to further develop this format.

Power Ekroth and Erlend Hammer have planned to curate two separate parts for this Biennial, each with their own working title and their own group of artists. “By dividing the biennial between them, they will increasingly put their signature on the exhibition, and to a greater extent be individually responsible for the end result, which in turn affects the ambition to create the best possible show.” More info on http://www.momentum.no/2013.250313.en.html
