A degree show marks the end of a process of art school education, and the beginning of a lifelong pursuit. For the young artists whose works are on display here, this exhibition only marks a brief moment of passage, before they leave the art school environment behind them and continue to develop their artistic practice on their own terms.
One idea could probably not truly sum up the apparent serendipity or coincidences that has brought this somewhat heterogeneous group of people together, but temporality and place are strong common denominators here – these young artists are a uniform collection of individuals, with diverging interests, experiences and a background from three continents. Despite of this they have a strong unity as a class. They have developed collaborative projects, all while simultaneously, as artists, they insist on their individual artistic practice. They constitute a vote of self-confidence. Another common trait is that they all, although in different ways, have both a national and an international orientation.
