WHITE SQUAT

GALLERY – OFFSPACE

WHITE SQUAT
IS A WHITE CUBE IN A SQUAT

WHITE SQUAT
IS THE NEW OFF-SPACE IN TOWN




Beginning September 2012 a house was squatted in the city center. We found a small white space with a big window front downstairs and realized it was a ‘ready-made’ white cube. We named it White Squat.

The White Squat offered young people an exhibition platform for 1 – 2 weeks. Everyone could use the space as they thought fitting for their projects. The exhibition was open for one day only. After that the works could be viewed from the outside through the windows.

The project ended in January 2013 due to renovation works, for which the squaters had to move away again.

ICELANDIC PAVILION by ARNAR ÁSGEIRSSON
Letting yourself be fully a part of what happens right now, without the limitations that futur consequences might bring, can lead to a powerful and intense experience of life. It’s all about people and moments where only the right now matters.

Probably most of you would expect A Performance, but I want to do something about performance. The Room is empthy, we are just a group of people. We have a situation, so it’s up to us to see what can we do with this.

Go, said the bird, for the leaves were full of children,
Hidden excitedly, containing laughter.
Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind
Cannot bear very much reality.
Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
T.S. ELLIOT, FOUR QUARTETS
