Support provided for the participation of artists Toril Goksøyr (b.1970, Ålesund, Norway, lives and works in Oslo, Norway) and Camilla Martens (b.1969, Oslo, Norway, lives and works in Oslo, Norway) in the group exhibition ‘New Horizons’ at Loft Project ETAGI in St. Petersburg, Russia as part of the large-scale project ‘Nordic Art Today’, which focuses on collaborations between artists and curators in the Nordic countries and Russia. The artist duo will present their project Sit down, listen (2011), a sound recording which they describe as ‘an echo of the despair and grief that you wish you could shout out loud when the worst thing imaginable has happened to you’, but, in reality, the sound is ‘the recording of a birth that took place in Oslo in 2011’. Curator: Anna Bitkina, Kari J. Brandtzaeg, Birta Gudjonsdottir, Aura Seikkula, Olesya a Turkina, Simon Sheikh and Power Ekroth, curatorial team for Nordic Art Today
