Thomas Iversen investigates common everyday objects through his practice. Everyday objects carry a history of local belonging, value and historic perspectives, told through their materiality and the techniques through which they are made. By investigating these objects and giving them new shapes and forms, Iversen questions the surrounding nature, culture and value of the objects.
Iversen’s MOMENTUM 12 project is process-based, relying on exploring and gathering materials and their transformation. Iversen collects pieces of material that fall from buildings and institutions in Oslo and Moss and then crushes them into pigment to produce printmaking ink. The entire process is documented through photography and video, which are presented alongside prints and other elements belonging to the different stages of the process.
