This is a future memory of our colonial heritage and its final frontiers:
In order to suppress you need to mask yourself as a true underdog. It must be your rights that are threatened, your words that are silenced. No-one likes a bully. When in public, you need to make sure to hide your true intentions. It is your culture that is being suppressed. They might or might not have an agenda. You are in minority. They are mocking you. Make sure people know that war is coming. In order to suppress you need to prepare.
Welcome to the opening on Thursday 2 of April from 18-21.
FROM 3 - 9.APRIL.2015
OPENING HOURS: 15:00 - 18:00
Camilla Edström Ödemark (b. 1985) is a Finnish artist currently based in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work often focus on what/who is abnorm and alien to a group identity, and in what way the divergent is necessary for maintaining a normative status quo. In the exhibition White Voids she investigates how a white hegemony is being maintained by the self-victimization of the suppressor.
Edström Ödemark graduated 2014 from Konstfack, Stockholm. Her work has been shown at Moderna Bar at the Museum of Modern Art (SE), Multicultural Centre (SE), Vapaan Taiteen Tila (FIN) and Aine Art Museum (FIN). White Voids is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Helsinki.
