Indutrious youth

Solo exhibition

Ladder space presents Industrious youth by Sara Annsofidotter - an exhibition exploring the centuries-old steel industry located deep in the forests of Sweden, where a young generation is left with the ecological and economic consequences of the eagerness of industrialism.

Centered at the production site of large-scale steel infrastructure, Industrious youth follows two teenage girls aimlessly drifting in the industrial area, parallel to the movements of workers welding a roof construction. Unfolding between the materiality of the steel factory and the surrounding environment, the installation echoes the symbiosis of natural resources and the economic tracks laid out for new generations.

Annsofidotter (b. 1991) holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts 2020 and a BFA from Umeå Art Academy 2016. Fascinated by society’s complex production chains, Annsofidotter’s work explores industrialism and its economic effects through mediums such as installation and poetry. In her current work, she collects material from the steel industry, based on her childhood in a small industrial town in Sweden.

Video and editing: Tim Panduro.

Special thanks to Stål & Rörmontage, Isabell and Alma.

Curated by Anne Sofie Skjold Møller and Anders Aarvik.

The exhibition is a part of ArtWeek, CAFx and supported by Rådet for Visuel Kunst, Vesterbro Lokaludvalg and Fondet for Dansk-Svensk Samarbejde.

About

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.
