Holding Pattern - Tom McCarthy | Anne Hilde Neset
|Author||T. McCarthy; I. Arns; M. Haglund e.a.|
A holding pattern is what air traffic controllers use to keep several planes orbiting above a busy airport without crashing. The scenario suggests a general condition: of human destinies bound up in the circuits of technology; and of anxiety, danger, and salvation—being "brought in safely." Involving elements of skill and craft, the drawing of patterns on a page, screen, or sky, it also invites analogies with art and choreography. Catalogue of the exhibition curated by Kunstnernes Hus Director and former Wire editor Anne Hilde Neset to award-winning novelist Tom McCarthy, invited to unpack, via contemporary art, the themes dealt with in his books.
