"In their beautifully crafted book, the authors document and critically question the 10 years of their collaboration across time, across national and continental borders, and against cultural expectations. Playful and poetic in their practice, Longva+ Carpenter explore basic human needs in a variety of settings, often physically tasking. They pose questions about the rare and raw predicament of being a vulnerable and fragile human in a world in crisis."
-PQ 2023 Jurors: Donatella Barbieri, Aziza Kadyr and Award Curator, Pavel Drábek
10 Together: Performances by Longva+Carpenter is an overview of collaborative practice in durational visual art performance, providing a chronology of work presented from 2010 to 2020 in galleries and public spaces, in city centres and small towns from the rural USA to islands in Norway. With essays and project descriptions in both English and Norwegian, the performances are offered to a public beyond the initial viewers at each event.
10 Together contains an academic yet poetic essay about collaborative labour by practitioner/researcher Dr Traci Kelly (UK/DE), as well as reflective and critical writings by each of the collaborators: Terese Longva (NO) and Dr Laurel Jay Carpenter (US/UK). The publication also includes an introduction by Rita Marhaug (NO), and a foreword by Dr Sandra Johnston (N. IE), both leaders in the international field of visual performance.
