WHEN: 12.5.2017 (World premiere)

WHERE: in an empty space on Albertinkatu in Helsinki

WHO: Sonja Ahlfors, Angelina Bergenwall, Meri Ekola, Venla Helenius, Johan Isaksson, Malin Nyqvist, Klara Wenner Tångring, Joanna Wingren & Ilse Ybarra.

WHAT: Object was a sound installation, an exhibition, and a participatory performance. The work examined objectification, the gaze, and ways of being seen. We started from the 12 photographs that fashion photographer Angelina Bergenwall took of Sonja Ahlfors and Joanna Wingren. We wanted to discuss the problematic beauty norms and even how we ourselves reproduce those norms. Object ended with an opening party where people from the street were invited to take part in the photographs and to an ecstatic final dance.
