With a starting point in the phrase Gräv där du står / Dig where you stand the works in the exhibition explores archiving as a method to understand one’s own creative starting point and guiding principles. Each student has worked with their own physical Archive Box in which they have collected, organised and investigated their individual archive. By altering the box in many possible ways, they have made the box fit their projects, rather than their project fitting a box. In the exhibition you will be met by a fantastic variety of expressions and topics.
The works in the exhibition ask what we should keep and what we should leave behind – what brings us forward and what weighs us down. Through the process of archiving they are proposing and articulating new methods and ways to understand the complexities of sustainability.
