Two photos by Jorunn Irene Hanstvedt were presented on the façade of Oslo S.
The photos constitute a part of the series Sleepers from 2002. The works elaborate on sleep as an image of “being in another place” and as a protest against a materialistically orientated society. Or may be they are merely an expression of silent meditation.
“The theme of the photos is homeless persons that sleep, as it were, right on the street, totally exposed in the public room. I move them out of reality and into new constellations. This is my artistic form of work of a caring nature and a wish to “raise them up to a humanly acceptable level”.
The project was produced for Rom for kunst, by Kulturbyrået Mesén.
