We are so happy to be able to present Elin Berge serie “Awakening” on this years exhibition. – Susanne Fessé, curator and art historian writes: -Elin Berge’s photography is genuine. It originates in honesty. She has continuously worked in the same territories of ideas and remains firmly rooted in them. She possesses the delicacy to be open for what she encounters. Her work is not judgmental, only curious. Just as within philosophy, she’s able to ask questions rather than pushing a thesis. That is her artistic strength.”
