NORWAY: 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 a site specific and art in public space project commissioned by Namdalseid municipality, developed and produced by the artist Brynhild Bye-Tiller. The project contained 24 large format photographic portraits which are on permanently display at Namdalseid helsetun (A Health and Care institution in Trøndelag county). The photographs gives the residents and their visitors different openings in to the local community, hence the title APERTURA NAMDALSEID [Latin apertura – opening]. In English Aperture.

Past and present side by side

"Apertura Namdalseid" was based on a local historical collection of photographs called KVINNESPOR [*]. With help from the public, old photographs and stories were collected. 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 photographs together. An old photo and a new photo.

[*] Kvinnespor is a online collection of photographs of women from 1900 until 1960. Namdalseid municipality does not have a local museum with the traditional venue for dissemination of local history. However Namdalseid Cultural Heritage Organisation has a rich collection of photographs which is physically available at the public library. A selection of these images based on gender and women's point of view are published online.

The project was supported by Namdalseid municipality.
