In Scar one meets 22 July through Werner Anderson's photo series from the two scenes of terror.
The photographs form an art installation in two parts: the landscape images from the island of Utøya are photographed with a 360-degree camera and exposed on infrared film. The black and white photos from the Government Quarter show details and sections of twisted steel in the wreckage caused by the car bomb blast. The terror attacks in 2011 are the subject of both parts of the art installation, but the perspectives and sites differ.
The exhibition invites audiences to reflect on perspectives, proximity and distance, and on how we as individuals and as a society make choices about what we see when we approach this difficult story. What is it possible to understand, and what aspects of the terror attack do we wish to take on board? What remains concealed, what do we prefer to push to the side?
What does seeing really mean?
