Working collectively and making use of horizontality as curatorial approach, the HISK laureates Sofia Caesar, Lisette de Greeuw, Francesca Ferreri, Eva Giolo, Johna Hansen, Megan-Leigh Heilig, Sina Hensel, Roel Heremans, Mirthe Klück, Hannah Mevis, Mark Požlep, Bárbara Sánchez Barroso, Gintautė Skvernytė, Ingel Vaikla and myself defined significant aspects of what is possibly our last project as a group. The exhibition’s title, its visual identity, the works on view, the spaces occupied by each artist and the kinds of of publication produced in conjunction with the exhibition were all discussed, negotiated and chosen in mutual agreement. The narrators were many, much like The Stone Raft, where the traditional narrator’s and characters’ voices are interwoven. The entirety of this process allowed us to put up a group exhibition in which the artists were the agents of their own participation whilst still acting as a group. Most of all, it was a wonderful exercise for all of us in exploring how to construct bridges.
