Moving in November continues this year with Traces from November, a shape shifter that can transform into any form and take place at any month or season during the year.
This year’s Traces from November is a project conceived by Ingri Fiksdal and Solveig Styve Holten: HORDE. The making of HORDE takes shape as a paid summer job for 9 teenagers between the age of 15 to 18 , recruited in the Helsinki area.
“HORDE is a choreographic work that both through practical organization as well as artistic expression thematizes who can access art and artistic work, through the practise and performance of a complex and powerful artistic community. At the moment, there is an increased awareness of representation of gender, sexual orientation and cultural background within the whole field of art and culture. At the same time, we see a major dominance of white, middleclass kids in all art education. We are interested in who can imagine themselves as artists in the future and who access professional art today. “ – Ingri Fiksdal and Solveig Styve Holte
HORDE will be rehearsed during the summer months and there will be a public showing in the beginning of August in Pihlajamäki. The premiere will be in the frame of Moving in November in the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
