Curator for Sakte bilder. Samtidsfotografi/Slow Pictures. Contemporary Photography (2016)

Slow Pictures. Contemporary Photography at Lillehammer Art museum (2016) is curated by Christine Hansen and Janeke Meyer Utne. The exhibition features eighteen Norwegian artists working with photography and is a reflection on the position of photography in the field of art at a time dominated by the transitory character of the digital image. An important premise of the show is that photography is so integrated in our society that we no longer see it.  The exhibition deals with time, not understood as a reproduction of a frozen motion or the flux of time given a symbolic expression, but conceived as involved time: the work of preparation, revision, and the time it takes for the viewer to experience the picture's impact of meaning. 

The book Slow Pictures. Contemporary Photography is published by Uten Tittel and Lillehammer Artmuseum. It has a introduction by Janeke Meyer Utne, an essay by Christine Hansen and a presentation of the artists in the show: Signe Marie Andersen, Bjarne Bare, Margareta Bergman, Øystein Dahlstrøm, Ingrid Eggen, Behzad Farazollahi, Else Marie Hagen, Toril Johannessen, Eline Mugaas, Sandra Vaka Olsen, Linn Pedersen, Ola Rindal, Vilde Salhus Røed, Stein Rønning, Tom Sandberg, Marthe Elise Stramrud, Morten Torgersrud og Marte Aas.
