A Structure Envisioned for Changing Circumstances


Blind Carbon Copy (Riga, Latvia) in collaboration with PARSE NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana), Vestfold Art Center (Tønsberg, Norway) and Kongsberg Kunstforening (Kongsberg, Norway) are announcing the online programme “A Structure Envisioned for Changing Circumstances”. The series of various artist contributions will be on view online starting from December 2021 till February 2022 on a web platform and Instagram account @structure.envisioned.

How can we find space for expression and creation in a world of changing circumstances?

How has the pandemic offered new ways to work globally across geographic boundaries? What have been the challenges of this dis-location?

Can this isolation provide space for new visions and spark additional creativity?

How can we (and have we) utilized online platforms to connect during times of forced isolation?

The online programme “A Structure Envisioned for Changing Circumstances” curated by Maija Rudovska (Blind Carbon Copy) in close partnership with Amy Mackie (PARSE NOLA) and Tina Rigby Hanssen (Vestfold Art Center) brings together artists from United States, Latvia, and Norway and forms an interconnected web between all the participants by distinctively addressing the issues of fragility, precariousness, impermanence, and isolation.

ASEFCC embraces the unknown and considers how art workers live and produce work within/around/despite constantly shifting frameworks. It focuses on the collaborations, support, and exchange that can take place across great distances, and allows for connections between different geographical locations, while also drawing attention to the creation of sustainable and long-lasting partnerships amongst artists and institutions.

Participating artists: Dave Greber (USA), Cristina Molina (USA), duo Anna Ihle (NO) and Addoley Dzegede (USA), Kjetil Detroit Kristensen (NO) and Līga Spunde (LV).

Dave Greber and Cristina Molina. “Casebearer 1.0”

Dave Greber and Cristina Molina for their video series called Casebearer 1.0 take inspiration from the highly adaptive species commonly known as the Bagworm or Case Bearer who creates a cocoon home for itself from whatever debris it finds. As artists who live in New Orleans, a city that faces coastal erosion and is threatened by sea level rise, the Bagworm serves as a model example of a resourceful nomad that acclimates itself to any given situation.

Artists Addoley Dzegede and Anna Ihle for their podcast A different world are using the personal tone to address notions of care, career and relationships in a political context. Ask Addoley + Anna questions who has the authority to give advice, and highlights the very practical conditions and dilemmas of art and money.

Līga Spunde. “Episodes about not knowing how it will be”

Līga Spunde’s project Episodes about not knowing how it will be takes shape as a poetic, digital artwork exhibited online. The irregularly changing nature of the work makes it unexpectable for the visitors, thus emphasizing the lack of stability behind different conditions that make a direct impact also on artists' work.

Kjetil Detroit Kristensen. “If You Do Not Love Me I Shall Not Be Loved”

If You Do Not Love Me I Shall Not Be Loved by Kjetil Detroit Kristensen is a result of an artist's life and its surrounding chaos, trauma and depression derived from the pandemic through the years of 2020, 2021, and now steady ongoing into 2022.


Artworks will be launched throughout the whole time-frame of 3 months (December, 2021 - February, 2022).
