The Devil May Care

Dear photography,

Why have you grown so painfully serious and formal in these times? Where is your playfulness, the skips and jumps, the mucking about, your devil may care attitude that laughs about rules and conventions? Show me the ones who dare have genuine, generous fun - be it with the camera, in front of the camera, behind the screen or with the images they end up making, finding, destroying
and reconfiguring.

Sincerely, 
a curator.

This summer five young photographers /visual artists will come to thoroughly shake up the Noorderlicht Photo Gallery. In The Devil May Care, running from June 27 to August 16, they respond to the callenge of guest curator Hester Keijser for more guts and playfulness in photography. The exhibition includes photographs, videos, installations and perfomance.

This exhibition is made possible with the support of Stead Bureau and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
