#ME - FROM SELF PORTRAIT TO SELFIE

  • Kommandørkaptein Klincks vei 7, Karljohansvern, Horten
  • October 3, 2016 - December 18, 2016
  •  /  11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
  • (29 Upcoming Dates)
Overview

We constantly look at ourselves in the mirror —from the moment we as babies smile and get a response until we look in the mirror in the morning when we get up, compare ourselves with others' achievements in competitions or in our daily routines. Our understanding of ourselves is in the background of the society we live in and the people we see around us, associate with, or look up to. At the same time, becoming familiar with oneself is an important part of the process of maturing into an independent person in community with others.

The exhibition explores the self-portrait and contemporary selfie-culture. Where are the differences apparent? What do photographic self-presentations reflect about the societies they arise in and about us as individuals?
First and foremost the exhibition is an excitingly interactive presentation of well-known photographers and artists, normal people's pictures of themselves, and research on the phenomenon of the selfie in recent times. There will also be the opportunity to take selfies, use a fine old-time automated photo booth, and draw portraits of yourself.
