We are Temporary Reality

Erica Nyholm

2012 - Ongoing

100 years ago Finnish woman was the first woman in Europe to vote for political ideology. The same women could order her coffee in cafeteria but couldn’t order her plate in restaurant. Her position was to stay indoors, dedicating her time for the family. In contrary the man was visible outside of home.

This historical reality as we consider it in our time conservatism – roles between a woman and a man – has remained in cases where the woman´s identity has been evaluated in populist perspective.

Therefor I stage the woman always as a mother, and a daughter as a picture of her mother. The physiological tensions and relationships indoors drives me to photograph mise-en-scene photographs. I see the domestic scene as a platform of hidden emotions and identity of a mother or a daughter. All of these subjects keeps me working to find a picture to describe the temporary realities we call life.
