Local | A fucking (norms)al exhibition

By on September 6, 2016

Through film and photography recognizes 10 young people the norms that govern our everyday lives. Opening at Vårby Library September 13 at 17-19.

Our society is governed by standards, we are guided by standards. Standards that determine how we behave, how we should be dressed, what color we should have. Standards that we do not see, which standards we unconsciously informs us after and standards that determine us. During four months has ten young people worked to make visible these standards through photography and film and their work will be exhibited at Vårby library.

We that are in the exhibition has gone on Hermods gymnasium focusing aesthetics and media. We created the exhibition as a project last semester before graduating, says Ellie Sparreljung, one of the exhibitors.

In the work the students were asked to choose a norm to work with, take a picture of what it looks like today and then a contrast image to the norm. They have themselves photographed and written the texts in the exhibition.

I think it is important to highlight the work done by young people about how they think and feel about the standards they perceive in society. The exhibition can be an inspiration to meetings and continued discussions, and help us discover the norms that reduces our field of vision and therefore our world, says Hélène Blomdahl, unit manager Segeltorp- and Vårby library of Children Art.
