Eli Maria Lundgaard: photo series from Out of the Inside
In Nordnorsk kunstnersenter’s gallery, Lundgaard presents a large installation consisting of both video works and sculptures. She looks for states of being that exist somewhere between living and dead, creations and ruins, foetuses and ghosts, and the eternal and the transient. She examines the human body as a container of movement, biology, memories and stories. She explores how genes, history and ghosts influence our consciousness, asks questions about who we are and what we consist of, and describes a kind of life that has neither a beginning nor an end.
The exhibition can be visited in the North Norwegian Art Center's gallery in Svolvær from 29 January to 20 March 2022. Read more here.
