ÓLÖF BJÖRNSDOTTIR, CHARLOTTE ELIASSON, CATHRINE EVELID & KRISTIN WEXELSEN GOKSØYR
Ólöf Björnsdottir shows her project “Designer Dress Project” consisting of a series of specially designed dresses mounted on posters for call girls. The dresses are produced by Wollenmaiden who also presents a new portrait in the exhibition.
Charlotte Eliasson presents her project “The Ladies Club”. Eliasson’s focus lies on the individual’s life situation, deconstructing and mapping three main aspects: the social heteronormative construction, gender, and power through photographs and videos.
Cathrine Evelid displays her project called “The Mind Shop” (TMS), whose primary goal is to give easy answers to hard questions. TMS treats questions regarding culture, gender, politics, and history through marketing items like “Club wear for female terrorists”, “Ideology Bikinis” and “Back to Basics Boob Tubes”.
Kristin Wexelsen Goksøyr shows her installation “Under Jorden” (“Under Ground”) in UKS’ basement. Concerned with creating a room that gives visitors a sense of visiting a parallel universe underground, the visitors are supposed to encounter beauty in vegetation, water, contrasting living and dead, light and darkness.
