An international patchwork, composed of small narratives of solidarity.
The Solidarity Patchwork is an interactive project created by Astrid and Ingrid Fadnes. A big quilt, consisting of multiple patches, conveys stories of solidarity connected to the 40th year of The Norwegian Solidarity Committee for Latin America.
Each contribution visualizes memories and human encounters, and draws lines to boundless battles. The quilt was created at a time when we have not been able to meet physically, but through digital art colloquia, communication via e-mail and patch shipping in the mail, around 170 activists and LAG members have so far contributed with their stories. Collectively, the patches form a larger narrative, composed of all the small narratives of solidarity.
The quilt will be exhibited during week 44 in Kunstplass, and the audience will be able to navigate the different stories of solidarity.
The audience are also invited to participate in the artwork, through two workshops.
