In the exhibition Nordic Panoramas, Landscape No. 1-3, My Lindh shows several works from an ongoing video series of the same name. The works deal with the image of the Nordic landscape. The tranquil depiction puts the landscape in a barely noticeable but brutal movement.
As the writer J.B. Jackson articulates, the view of the landscape contains questions about organization of space: who owns or uses the sites, how they were created and how they are changed. Lindh’s investigation is about the landscape’s politics, ideas, movement and identity.
The word landscape originates in the German 15th century term landschaft – a created land, and denotes what our gaze can capture in one piece. The word panorama comes from the Greek word pan, whole, all, everything and ho’rama, sight, view. The panorama is used in both a painting and photographic tradition as a long and narrow image that reflects a wide view, often of a landscape.
Inauguration February 13, 5–8pm.
Opening hours: February 14–27, Wed–Thu 12–5pm, Fri–Sun 12–4pm
