@fotografiskcenter : “Snowflakes and Other Surprises” curated by @sigrunalba and with the nordic artists:

@nicolaihowalt & I are showing the series of photogravyre called DYING BIRDS.
Snowflakes, vegetation and human intervention in nature are at the core of the exhibition Snowflakes and Other Surprises, which presents work by 16 artists from Iceland, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The exhibition has been curated by the Icelandic author and curator Sigrún Alba Sigurðardóttir, who has developed the term and concept poetic storytelling. The concept describes a particular way of using a photograph as a narrative medium in an attempt to understand and sense the world.
The works in the exhibition shed light in various ways on the human relationship with nature and other living beings. A common feature of the participating artists is that they are preoccupied with various phenomena or elements of nature such as trees, mountains, plants, birds and snowflakes – and they explore new ways of being in the world; of relating to and interacting with the world and nature.
