Bedrock 2
Group exhibition

Bedrock is the biannual group exhibition of Halmtorvet 11A-F studio collective.

The exhibition is a container providing a glimpse of the current state of the studio collective. Including both current and previous members, as well as previous exhibitors of Ladder Space, the exhibition reestablishes the studio collective, whatever that means to each of us in its arbitrary state.

The premise of the exhibition is not to control or manage what the artists contribute, which means that the exhibition contains works at different stages of production, showing many facets of what can be conceived as "finished". By continually opening up the building, the audience can peek into some of the raw processes that are going on in the stables, as well as how these are changing over time.

Bedrock refers to the foundation or bottom of a mountain; something hidden and solid from which the mountain protrudes from. Seemingly solid it is still in constant change, morphing into other shapes, affected by its surroundings and internal states.

The exhibition is supported by Snabslanten.

Ladder Space is an eclectic exhibition space that encapsulates what surrounds it. In a stable building at Halmtorvet – which also functions as a studio collective – exhibitions and performances manifest, in addition to activities of more processual, temporary, and communal character.

The exhibition space strives to resemble how we encounter the world today, as leaping and association-driven, where we scroll through a reality that is intertwined, paradoxical and interchangeable. Instead of curating the exhibitions based on a single idea or a set frame of references or preferences, we examine the chaotic and paradoxical concept of housing many different practices under one roof and let themes and associations flow freely and weave in and out of the different activities. The eclectic becomes a tool to generate new meanings, understandings and coherence and use this openness towards the chaotic as a method to create new forms of dialogue and add nuance and complexity to the activities and conversations that take place in Ladder Space.
