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

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


APERTURA NAMDALSEID (2016-2017) was a site specific and public art project commissioned by Namdalseid municipality, (NO), developed and produced by me. The project contains 24 large format photographic portraits which are on permanently display at Namdalseid helsetun. A Health and Care institution in Trøndelag county. Apertura Namdalseid is a public collection of photographs. The project was based on a local historical collection of photographies called KVINNESPOR [*]. With the help of 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.
