Temporary Stabilisations functions as a studio and a public transdisciplinary platform for contemporary art and related practices. The space is initiated by the artists Annie Johansson and Andreas Engman and is situated in a former convenient store in Gamlestan, Gothenburg.
We humbly aim for this space to be:
~ a pile of entangled yarn ~ a messy soup of post-patriarchal & anti-dude thinking ~ critical world bending ~ material investigations ~ hubris ~ contradictions ~ the copying of other artists out of love ~ institutional critique ~ cooking ~ anti-fascisms ~ not either or but both ~ mysticism ~ materialisms ~ unlearning ~ misinterpretations ~ statements ~ communities ~ nervousness ~ failures and mistakes.
The platform is guided by the ethos of fluid states when referring to artistic practices and the role of the artist in society.
A fluidity also at the heart of embracing and engaging with the ever changing constructions of norms, gender, identity, sexuality, borders, culture, material and language etc. We want to open up a space to artistically engage with a changing world through openness, complexity and care suggesting that many of the “certainties” in life are often a set of ... temporary stabilisations.
Love, Annie, Andreas, Sierra...
and Stabby the house rat(s).
