IN THE CLOSET⃣ is an artist-run space founded by Vsevolod Kovalevskij in Tromsø, Norway 2020. This showroom is located in the walk-in closet of the artist's apartment, located at Fiskergata 2.
The title of space is a double entendre, playing on the well-known saying "in the closet", used to describe a person who is unwilling or unable to acknowledge their sexual or gender orientation publicly.
This title creates the foundation for a space, dedicated to showing artistic projects which question the meaning behind: gender, identity, in/visibility, lack of discussion, discomfort, censorship, inclusiveness or lack thereof. Ultimately, its intention is to expand and play with what it means to be in the closet.
