NORWAY: KINTSUGI is a cooperation between the artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller, several organizations within prevention and mental health (Norwegian Red Cross, For Fangers Pårørende, Link Trondheim) and members of the public. The project focus on the topic "Next of kin" through photography and participatory methodologies.
- What happens when participants get involved in current issues about being next of kin. What kind of elements are there, what kind of form do the elements ultimately take and what kind of perspectives emerge in a public debate.
The artist will lead the process and give the participants necessary practical and technical skills in photography and visual communication, at the same time promote co-determination. The participants will propose which issues are to be discussed in connection with the next of kin' role. Bye-Tiller will also produce a book that documents and makes the project and the art works available, a book that documents the process and examines current artistic issues. The book will be launched on October 10th 2021, on World Mental Health Day.
There is an outdoor exhibition in a public space in Trondheim city from June 26th until July 16th, 2021.
The project is supported by Trondelag county, Trondheim municipality and NBK Vederlagsfondet.
