Svartjord is an artist group founded in Oslo in 2014.
The name Svartjord (Mollisol) refers to the nutrient-rich soil found in the most fertile agricultural areas on earth. Each of Svartjord’s projects represents an artistic ecosystem where the given conditions provide fertile ground for the artistic work.
Ecology, spatial interventions, urbanity, and collectivity are central for the group’s ethos.
Svartjord explores a wide spectrum of spatial conditions and has collaborated with different artists and institutions during the last two years.
