We've been sent a strange sign

Culture and languages

Sprouting mushrooms. A face without features. Light seared into paper. A haunted cityscape. In this exhibition we are surrounded by strange signs indeed, in the form of artworks presented by 25 recent graduates from HDK-Valand's BA and MA photography programmes.

Landskrona Foto

Throughout this exhibition we encounter photographs in their more traditionally recognised form, as prints created from negatives or digital files, as well as works that nudge at the limits of what photography is; cameraless creations, digital animations, letters and archival materials, drawings and sculptural forms. As diverse as the methodological approaches are the topics confronted, including environmental anxiety, the excavation of historical events, geo- and gender politics, and the queer gaze. Through these works we journey through physical and mental landscapes in urban and natural environments, through institutional archives and intimate scenes.

The exhibition reflects concerns that will continue to ripple through our collective consciousness, alongside that one major concern we all share right now, the pandemic the world is currently grappling with. While we navigate this uncertainty, it will always remain vital to explore our human-ness and surroundings through this commonly encountered sign, the photograph, in all its forms.
