Artist: Maren Dagny Juell, Tone Berg Størseth, Liv Tandrevold Eriksen Exhibition title: Out Of Office Venue: The Office, She will studios, Sanderveien 2, 1400 Ski Norway Date: 14. Juni – 14. juli 2021 Photography: Kunstdok (Tor Simen Ulstein). To whom it might concern Thanks for reaching out. We are currently Out Of Office. The artists in this exhibition have created an exhibition in an empty office space. The interior is from the mid-'90s, worn down and recently vacated. The fixtures, furniture and leftovers from the earlier occupants are untouched. The light is dim, the carpet is worn, and the air-con unit has stopped working. The white cube serves its purpose as a space that does nont interfere with the artwork. The artwork is often the only item in the room and the white walls an anonymous backdrop. Here the interior has its own story, with references to a time period and functional aesthetic, yet in this context, it is becoming a part of the reading of the art and framing it in a new way. The surroundings claims as much attention as the artwork. Narratives start and stop, and the work co-exists with memories and detritus of those who have left the building. In this democratic reading, the chair or the curtains becomes as important as the art.
