Examined & Exposed, 8 Master Students from Valand Academy’s Photo Program19 May- 11 June, 2016

As the final show this spring, Cecilia Hillström Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition with the MFA-students from Valand Academy’s photo program. The exhibition is curated by Niclas Östlind, PhD, curator and head of the MFA program in photography at Valand Academy.

A common thread among these artists is a strong interest in the passing of time and processes of memory – often in relation to personal experiences and questions of identities – but also connected to particular places and historical situations. There is a focus on beauty and decay, although the borders are often hard to tell. Materiality in different forms is made present through experimentations with surfaces and light, as well as with the textures of the medium itself. Their works exemplify what young artists today create by looking through the lens of a camera. The images are less captured in the moment of exposure than constructed and examined in postproduction.

Exhibiting artists: David Arnar Runólfsson, Ylva Bengtsson, Maria Buyondo, Hannah Giles, Malin Griffiths, Katarina Grip Höök, Anja Linnea Hellström and Klara Källström.

The Overview Effect

In 1968, the iconic Blue Marble photograph of Earth was created.

Not only was it an image of stunning beauty – it also represented a new perspective on life on earth, an essential and radical shift in self-awareness. The astronauts described a profound sense of connectedness, a feeling of timelessness. An overwhelming experience, raising questions as: What does it mean to be here, as the only living light in an otherwise dark space? What responsibility do we have towards ourselves and the place we live in? But it also gave a feeling of global consciousness.

Can contemporary photography achieve something similar? Can it call for equivalent great emotions of understanding something about ourselves as human beings? Is contemporary photography still capable to engage and declare, create connections of recognition?

Davíd Arnar Runólfsson, Maria Buyondo, Ylva Bengtsson, Hanna Giles, Malin Griffiths, Anja L Hellström and Klara Källström are all explorers of new stars, showing work that communicates the experiences and existential circumstances which define and create us. As daring astronauts they dive into the universe of photography, working in a space that knowledge and technology allows them to be in. They mark a place in the overwhelming, endless cosmos of images, questioning the reality in our dramatic world, opening up for new experiences. They turn our gaze to precious moments, that we know will be lost in time. Like tears in the rain.
Lotta Antonsson, Professor in Photography
