Curator Laura Serani writes about this project:
In this poetic universe, like in a dream, the past and the present are continuously mixed. Through fog and dim light the traces of other lives occur: memories and familiar objects appear from unknown places, hotel rooms without memories, bodies, objects of desire, that through a closed door brings out new stories over and over again.
Nostalgia, sensuality, abandon, slowness and silence envelop the space and every gesture. Like in dreams sensations are both vague and exaggerated.
Øyvind Hjelmen is the only one who has the key to the intimate diary where this series of images could belong, but he shares - with those who look - precious and fragile visions, rare moments of suspension in the middle of the deafening noise of reality.
