The Suitcase Project


Curators: Liberty Paterson and Thor Nørmark-Larsen
September – October 2007
Beaver Projects, Copenhagen and The Old Library, Cardiff, Wales

The Suitcase Project involved an extended period of international collaboration between artists, curators and venues; the creation of new artworks and a cultural exchange and exhibitions. The project was developed around ideas of portability, travel and transition.

The Suitcase Project exhibitions at Beaver Projects, Copenhagen and The Old Library, Cardiff a provided an opportunity for the project to contribute to its local communities, and the space to discuss the increasingly nomadic condition of both the artist and works of art, as well as appealing to a wider audience through its reflection of topical issues such as immigration, identity and displacement.

Artists: Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (PH/DK); Morten Dysgaard (DK); Sean Edwards (UK); Carwyn Evans (UK); Rabab Ghazoul (IQ/UK); Rebecca Gould (UK); Violeta Miranda (MX/UK); Torben Ribe (DK); Jennie Savage(UK) and Sixten Therkildsen(DK).
