Far from the tumult of the permanent technological revolutions, Øyvind Hjelmen practices silver photography with the same slowness as his apparently immobile shadows, and his prints have the same subtle fragility of the precious moments of our memories. His innocent subjects nevertheless convey the unsubdued strength of the desire for the other, of the warmth of the mysterious body, of the solitude shared by connivance, and of the image as the densest of silent narrations. A luminous narrative like an alliteration of shadows.
“Thank you so much for your support! The resulting opportunity is so much appreciated. It has been a pleasure to cooperate with you, and this chance for both exhibition and book will always be fondly remembered. “Øyvind Hjelmen
The Fonds Régnier pour la Création financed the framing of the photographs, the transportation of the works and the artist’s stay to prepare the exhibition and the opening.
