In August, I was invited to exhibit at photo gallery Galleri Vasli Souza in Malmö, Sweden. The gallery space is divided in two sections, and I decided to show both «Everybody Knows This is Nowhere» and «One Day in History». I have long wanted to exhibit these two projects together. Both present Norwegian youth and their world, yet in two different ends of the scale. While the youth in Finnmark were longing away from their quiet life, many of the young people who survived on Utøya 22nd of July were longing for the life they once had. The exhibition also included a sound work where visitors could sit down and listen to the stories of the young survivors. Galleri Vasli Souza has alternating exhibitions showing international contemporary photography. Located in the city center of Malmö, the gallery is well worth a visit.
