Solo exhibition & Photography & Book & Lecture & Participation  

NORWAY/PALESTINE: The project and exhibition "Participatory Observation and Documentary Methods in Edit Palestine" investigated questions of participatory methodologies, methods of collecting and processing documentary material and movement in space and surface in storytelling photographic expressions.

The project had a Palestinian theme and contained three participatory art works "Keep On Writing" (a text-based workshop), an online performance by Balqees Rjoub and a lecture held by artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller and two photographic series "Palestinian Gestures" and "East Jerusalem, Palestine" by artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller.

ARTISTIC WORK BRYNHILD BYE-TILLER – Participatory work
"Keep on writing" invited the public to write about Jerusalem, inspired by the pictures from East Jerusalem in the exhibition. All kinds of texts were welcome, both short and long reflections, personal thoughts or descriptions of East Jerusalem, Palestine. More than 30 texts became a part of the exhibition and later on in a redacted version of the book "East Jerusalem, Palestine". All contributions can be seen in the book. (Opens in New Window)

Palestinian Balqees Rjoub participated in the opening online from Ramallah. Reading her own texts from the book "East Jerusalem, Palestine". This was a new collaboration which led to a joint book. The book was launched during the exhibition opening on Saturday October 26th 2019 and was a part of the exhibition. Rjoub wrote 19 free texts to Bye-Tiller's photographs from East Jerusalem, Palestine.

In a lecture, somewhere between being performative and informative, Bye-Tiller presented her artistic strategy with examples of projects she has completed. The lecture said something about documentary and participation, what kind of questions she asks, what methods she uses, how an artist can work with a material and the artist's role in a conflict area.

ARTISTIC WORK BRYNHILD BYE-TILLER – Photographic series
In the exhibition space the public could see two photographic series: "Palestinian Gestures" and "East Jerusalem, Palestine". The first one showed people, daily life and condensed situations in private and public spaces in Palestine. With 19 large format colour photographs. By participating directly in an environment, Brynhild Bye-Tiller shows how participation can change documentary photography. She examines structures and methods that allows human contact to blend with traditional photographic approaches. She collaborated with the organisation Sareyyet Ramallah in her stay in Palestine. The second series was "East Jerusalem, Palestine", with 19 photographs and 19 text's written in Arabic and translated to English by Nariman Sharawneh. All of the material were put together in an assemblage on the wall and in a redacted version of the book.

 

The project was supported by Trondheim municipality.
