Trine Søndergaard will be exhibiting at UGM Maribor Art Gallery in Slovenia.
The exhibition “Pride and Prejudice in National Costume” is the result of many years of collaboration between the Maribor Art Gallery, the National Museum in Prague and the Museum of Lusatian Sorbs in Bautzen, Germany. The exhibition’s focus revolves around national costumes and and their representations in a specific area and time, while also touching upon issues of allegiance and identity, as well as the role of women in society.
Trine Søndergaard show’s works from her series Hovedtøj.
Hovedtøj is made in collaboration with two Danish local cultural heritage museums: Skive Museum and Greve Museum. Trine Søndergaards was granted access to their collections of garments and textiles from the local area. The young girls, who are photographed in the works, all live in the local area. They pose in their own private clothes – they are instructed to wear their favourite clothes, which are then combined with the historical garments.

Some of the works are also being shown at Trine Søndergaard’s current solo exhibition FARAWAY NEARBY at Greve Museum in Denmark.
