Bridges Are Burning presents 12 international artists graduating from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The show is the result of two years of thinking and practising artistic research with a focus on the creation of new pasts, presents and futures. In a time of political polarization and burnt bridges, how can we reflect afresh upon the act of exhibiting models for the future whilst still intervening in our divided present and contested past?
The show invites the audience to travel with us, across boundaries, as we seek to build new pathways and explore unknown topologies through the media of installation, video, sound, text and site-specific intervention. The artists question the power of narratives, knowledge construction, and explore queer spaces and environmental issues.
The exhibition presents works by Jane Pedersen, Kasper Holm, Trude E. Bekk, Letizia Balzi, Martin Palmer, Mika Haykowski, Katherine Butcher, Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir, Anaclara Talento, Anton Benois, Ana Dunjic and Nanna K. Hougaard.
