The photographic work Svovlgul Sol is originally made for a previous work, the publication Atlas (published by Tacet Press) that combined diary entries, notes on colours, structures and symmetries, geographic- and linguistic navigation with 13 photographs that unfolded like cartographic maps in an atlas. Everything was collected during the years 2016 - 2017.
The structure of the publication was a colour schematic that gradually went from dark and underexposed photographs towards brighter and more colourful ones and thus culminating in Svovlgul Sol –an overexposed, burned out landscape.  

This version of Svovlgul Sol was produced for the Showpiece exhibition at Galleri Nicolai Wallner, curated by pro
Showpiece was an exhibition in motion presenting artworks within the structural framework of a somewhat performative presentation.
For this exhibition, Pro was interested in exploring how it becomes increasingly more difficult to distinguish between an artist and their piece and the relationship between them. The show was therefore an experiment in exposure and what it means to be exposed as artwork and artist simultaneously.
