Apertura Namdalseid (2016-2017)
 
 
APERTURA NAMDALSEID (2016-2017) was a site specific and public art project commissioned by Namdalseid municipality, (NO), developed and produced by me.
Participation & Public art & Photo  

NORWAY: "Apertura Namdalseid" was a site specific and an art in public space project commissioned by Namdalseid municipality, developed and produced by the artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller. The project contains 24 large format photographic portraits which are on permanently display at Namdalseid helsetun. A Health and Care institution in Trøndelag county.

How are women and the female form depicted in photography? How can photography trigger and preserve memories among the elderly residents in a Health and Care institution?

Apertura Namdalseid was based on a local historical collection of photographs called KVINNESPOR [*]. With help from the public, old photographies and stories were collected and new portraits were taken of different local women. Such as a moose hunter, a football player, an immigrant, a young reindeer herder and a paraglider. The idea was to put two and two images together. An old photo and a new photo. Past and present.

The portraits gives different openings in to the local community, hence the title APERTURA NAMDALSEID [Latin apertura – opening]. In English Aperture.
