Support provided to the contemporary art festival Printemps de Septembre, Toulouse, France for the participation of Fredrik Vaerslev (b. 1979 Moss, Norway, lives and works in Drøbak, Norway) and Matias Faldbakken (b. 1973 in Hobro, Denmark, lives and works in Oslo, Norway) in the group exhibition ‘D’un autre monde’. According to the curator, ‘the artists chosen to participate in this exhibition all have in common a tendency not to represent the world as it is, but to propose abstract, imaginary universes that are anchored in an elsewhere, or otherwise’. The exhibition will be dispersed across the city, and also in its environs. Artists who are chosen for the exhibition work in various techniques, as they are painters, sculptors, performance and video artists who present wide possibilities of expression. Other participating artists include Ei Arakawa, Karla Black, Joe Bradley and Roberto Cuoghi, among others.
