Curated by Mirjam Westen
'An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind'* is a good epigraph of Kunsthall 3,14´s series of upcoming exhibitions. The many project reflects and raise questions through artworks and artistic actions directed at personal and historical events. The artists look back into the past at the same time contemplates contemporary times and intervene directly in many ways the current exchange of words. What stories transcend? How aware are we of the truthfulness of the stories we are presented with? Stories help to close and open the space of opportunity.
Do we understand the narrative's operative power and influence? Amanda Gorman said it best: "If only we're brave enough to see it / If only we're brave enough to be it"
How can we read events and history as a balance of rights and wrongs, or events and history that instill pride and shame. How can we live and forgive injustice? Is forgiveness an act that negates justice? May forgiveness without justice as forgetfulness cover-up and promote further offenses and abuses? How can we move beyond forgiveness to the ultimate act of embrace final reconciliation? Is the willingness to reconcile, public apologies, renewed educational efforts needed to contribute to further reconciliation? Is memory a redeeming keeper of moral equilibrium? Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness are life-altering lessons and processes that the 12 artists within the exhibition 'Living Forgiving Remembering' shed light on.
The exhibition is accompanied by 3,14Live program and performance by Grace Ndiritu.
The schedule will be annonsed at a later time. [www.kunsthall314.art/314live]

'Duet/Songs' consists of words that imitate sounds based on machine-generated transcripts of insect communication. The text derived from sound recordings of insect calls by entomologist Liao Yi-Chang, these recordings were inserted into transcription software originally meant to transcribe human speech.
PARABOL - in collaboration with Lydgalleriet, who selects a sound work that will be featured through our parabolic loud-speaker sited in the institution's entrance hall. With a particular focus on special commissions and edits, the loudspeaker's adjacent location offers an ambience and mode of address corresponding with the simultaneous exhibition in the exhibition hall and vault.
