Valand Academy: MFA Fine Art + MFA Photography
2016.04.29 - 2016.05.22
ENACT is Valand Academy’s annual thesis exhibition at Göteborgs Konsthall. The show consists of 13 artists from MFA Fine Art and MFA Photography. ENACT is inspired by role playing games and the theory of symbolic interactionism, and becomes a platform where each participating artist can mediate their ideas and aesthetic expressions. Through this meeting each of them collide and coexist in the space.
By combining an idea of roles we take on in our social and professional lives one can look at the concept of the ‘group show’ as a micro-society. The interaction between the roles taken on by each individual, object and institution should generate meaning. Or in the setting of an exhibition: a theme, which is then modified through constant interpretation.
