Liv Liberg / Sister Sister
12.06.21 — 31.07.21
In her first solo exhibition, Liv Liberg will show ten photographic portraits chosen from her ‘Sister Sister’ project. Liberg was 10 years old when she started photographing her four years younger sister Britt. What started between two sisters who enjoyed fashion and reproducing iconic, editorial fashion images, developed into a serious passion and obsession for Liv. Over the years Liv accumulated a vast cache of images that document her sister's development from a child into a young woman.
The images chosen for the show powerfully capture the relationship that a young girl has with her body and her awareness of herself and the outside world. Liberg directs her sister in different settings, over a timeframe of fifteen years, mostly wearing their mother’s clothes. The work emphasizes the almost obsessive attitude that resulted in an abundance of photos.
