Stafett is a two month long residency program which has involved four guest artists and two guest curators working at Nevven between June the 7th and August the 2nd.

Every artist, with the guidance and the support of the guest curators, has been invited to work for a period of two weeks in the Nevven studio space and, after having created and installed their work, handed over the space to the next artist as in a relay race – a Stafett. The aim was to create a collective exhibition organically growing and developing as the artists’ residencies were following one another.

As in a Stafett, the artists had to start their residency from the position that was left by the previous participant, therefore being forced to adapt their artistic intentions in a way that could either complement and complete – or deliberately work against and clash with– the existing piece(s).

This interference and limitation are at the very core of the project, forcing the artists into a creative process which, besides challenging them to respond to the physical space of the gallery, demands that they also take into consideration the other practitioners and their work.

The final exhibition is the result of a collective effort of the artists and the curators, a path crossed together to create something bound by an organic, strong interaction, where every piece is connected and at the same time completed by the others.



Nevven is proud to present and celebrate the results of this project re-opening to the public with the group show Stafett which will salute the incredible efforts and unique energies gathered by these 4 artists and 2 guest curators who lived Nevven during the last two months.
