Tonenton comes from the german word for clay (Ton), and is referring to both color and music tones. It is a way for us to encompass sound, sculpture and painting in one word. For the next 6 month, we have made a small tower in carlsberg our headquarters. Here the exhibitions changes every two weeks, and once a month a magazine is published. After that we will become nomadic. The three founders has roots in Germany, Denmark, Netherland and New Zealand.
We speak in different tongues, understand knowledge in strange patterns. We build the same story in different houses. No translation is ever the same, and so with exhibitions.
As our pool of backgrounds differ so does our interpretations of the art works.
We will invite 30 artist and 10 curators to build different exhibitions in the same booth. Every day the show will be on view, and every night the works will become undone. Come morning the walls will be empty again so by midday a new show can arise. Join us for our art marathon.
It lasts four days, not one will be the same, and neither will we.
The project is based on Adrian Pipers speculations on what will happen when artists start being the one choosing who exhibits where and how. This is what we are doing here, putting artists in charge of writing, thinking and doing the whole exhibition, and selling magazines to the price of candy.
