Trine Søndergaard – poster in size A1.

Exhibition poster from Trine Søndergaard’s solo exhibition at Greve Museum (DK) in 2022.

The poster features an image from Trine Søndergaard’s “Hovedtøj/headwear” series. The characteristic stillness of Søndergaard’s work pervades the serene portraits of young girls wearing historical headwear borrowed from local danish museums.

At a first glance, the photographs give the impression of presenting historical pictures, but upon closer inspection one discovers the minute discrepancies of time and visual clashes present in the images. By photographing the models in their own favourite clothes while wearing the historical headdresses, Søndergaard creates an anachronistic meeting ground where the small modern labels and the girls’ personal and modern jewellery marks a conspicuous tension between new and old, past and present. These visual encounters create a condensed accumulation of time embodying both a personal, cultural and historical expression that resonate with contemporary debate on national sentiment, identity, the attitude towards headdresses and the history of women.

The poster is printed beautifully on 250 g/m2 Novatech Matt FSC certified paper.
