HOUR was a collective encounter curated by Pavana Reid. 24 artists from Norway, Nordic and international countries migrated, interacted within and share time, space and materials over a 24 hour period. On February 28, 2020 at 18.00, the artists began entering the shared space, one by one, on the hour. Once an artist entered the space, they remained for the 24 hour period. The collective performance ended at 18.00 on February 29, 2020.
The project was an experimental live art event which aimed to examine the ways different artists use their artistic intuition in a controlled environment considering themes such as territory, ownership, belonging and geographical identity.
