"ETHEREAL. PHOTOGRAPHIC ART FROM NORWAY" 3 October 2019 to 12 January 2020 at the Fotografie Forum


Shimmering, shining, fleeting: with ETHEREAL. PHOTOGRAPHIC ART FROM NORWAY the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt presents exceptional works about the subtleties of light from A K Dolven, Dag Alveng and Linn Pedersen. Through photography, video and installation, the three artists dedicate themselves to the extreme qualities of Norwegian light that shape the country’s mystic nature and their own desires.

Dag Alveng (*1953) portrays people, relaxed in the garden, on the beach, in the forest, as well as summery landscapes. Always in the picture, glistening or cooling in the shade, is the midsummer light. A K Dolven’s (*1953) surreal reflections of light at the Arctic Circle are curiously timeless, in videos with herself as actor. Linn Pedersen (*1982) uses a colossal camera obscura with which she photographed landscape and individuals for months, creating unusual perspectives on her own light drawings.

ETHEREAL gives insight into the lively contemporary photo-art scene of Norway and it is Fotografie Forum Frankfurt’s contribution to the country’s Guest of Honour programme at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair.
