Hold On is a performance created especially for the staircase at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo as part of the exhibition “Holding Pattern” curated by Anne Hilde Neset and Tom McCarthy. The expression hold on can mean both wait, hold on (to something) or endure. The performance is a response to the score/installation/sound piece igevär by Swedish artist Åke Hodell (1919-2000). Hold On investigates a variety of different practices for disciplining the body in order to hack them to produce a subversion of their original purposes. It is such a choreographic exploration of Hodell’s artistic methods.
