High Tides

In the intertidal zone creeps the starfish – our curatorial companion of the 2019 edition of LIAF - with an eye on each arm, a witness to several events at once. These arms are waving with gestures suggestive of camaraderie, struggle, excitement, curiosity, and movement for the sake of movement. Expansive rather than focused, the curatorial arms have aimed to open up a set of diverse conversations that can entangle and connect in unfamiliar ways. Not only based within each of the locations where LIAF has been embedded throughout the year, these arms will each form a varied programme of “High Tides” taking place in Svolvær throughout the five weekends of the festival.
