Meet the artists participating in Desire Lines week-long residency as they present their work to the public.
Desire Lines Artists-in-Residence Program is a new ´freedom of the city´ initiative for independent public artists. For one week five international artists who specialize in producing site-specific and ephemeral public artworks will demonstrate how human-scale, intervention-based street art practice can offer an alternative to the predominant form of large-scale, resource-heavy muralism. Touching upon the paradigms of degrowth, sharing economy, rights to the city and intangible heritage, temporary artworks will replace monolithic public art sculptures, and in the process raise the question of who has the power and authority to communicate messages and create meaning in our shared spaces.
This project is supported by Oslo´s Agency for Cultural Affairs and the Car Free City Life Program.
