GUIDED TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION
Traces of Vulnerable Existence – Karlsson Rixon
Saturday 9.6 at 1 pm
The guided tour will take 20 min
In the ongoing exhibition Traces of Vulnerable Existence Karlsson Rixon depict places where people, for various reasons, are camping as refuge. The images in the series At the Time of the Third Reading / Vid tiden för den tredje läsningen / Во время третьего чтения were taken at a lesbian summer camp in Russia in June 2013, where about sixty people had gathered to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the camp. At the same time, but in another place – the Russian Duma – the third, and final, reading of a bill was implemented, which suggested a prohibition of the dissemination of information to minors about so-called “non-traditional sexual orientation”. Karlsson Rixon’s work forms a significant historical testimony from this tenth and final camp. Their choice to photograph at a distance is a way of depicting a friendly community that merely certain people have access to, as well as performing an artistic strategy in order to protect the identity of the portrayed. The exhibition also features an experimental documentary by Los Angeles based filmmaker Adele Horne.
Welcome to the guided tour of the exhibition on Saturday 9.6 at 1pm!
