I Periferin (In the Periphery)

Group exhibition, framed photos and skype-

photo booth

----------------------------------------------------

Group exhibition curated by Magdalena Blom in the studio collective Slakthusateljéerna in Stockholm. Participating artists: Isabella Ahlstedt, Johan Carlsson, Magdalena Blom and Josephina Lexin.


Together, the group built an X-construction measuring 3 x 3 x 2,4 meter, symbolising a focus point in the middle of the room to both create and restrain space for the artists to present their work - in the periphery.


Skype Date was Blom´s piece in the Exhibition. A series of photographs and an interactive multimedia installation.

   





 The photographs were framed screen shots from a selection of Blom and her husband´s past Skype conversations. Dealing with a distance relationship over a long period of time turned the skype dates into an everyday-need. Blom aimed for the motif of the photographs to show a documentation of this contemporary interaction between the two.


To recreate that interaction, she created a skype-photo booth. And a few hand-picked people sat prepared via Skype to do live "Skype-dates" with the visitors.
