1111Anne-Karin Furunes "Back To Light. Faces Reflecting the Past"_Gardens, San Servolo Gardens
Anne-Karin Furunes' artistic work is based on the analysis of historical photo archives. The photos, generally portraits of unnmaed people, are digitally processed to highlight, in their grey, expressionless faces printed on paper, traces of feelings and experiences which the subjects were detained when alive. The wrinkles of the face are "excavated" to show their violated identities. Site-specific installation Back to Light was inspired was inspired by the Museum and the Archive of the former Insane Asylum on San Servolo Island.
