Project Description

  • Nearer The Time
  • Trine Søndergaard
  • year: 2019
  • 50 x 50 cm each
  • achival pigment print

Trine Søndergaard explores how we carry our family history with us and how heredity affects us. In a kind of family-tree hanging we find a succession of portraits of different generations of a family unknown to the viewer. All the figures have closed eyes and in their colourlessness look like busts: sculptures whose history can be traced back to antiquity. In what ways do our origins and families – with all their stories, experiences and patterns of behaviour – influence for better or for worse the human beings we become?

”Nearer The Time” was a part of Trine Søndergaards solo exhibition “Nearer The Time” at Martin Asbæk Gallery 2019.
