Exhibition

Old Age

The number of aged people is growing in the West.

Old people are presented by an ideal of retirement as a golden age, a culmination of lifestyle full of youthful vigour, hobbies and action. But those opportunities are not available to everybody. Those who are ailing and afflicted by illness easily miss out on mainstream experiences, leading to exclusion.

The exhibition shines a light on this aspect of ageing that is so often ignored: the part that hurts, often quite literally, which one feels in one’s joints and bones, even in one’s soul. That time of life when you look into the mirror and see the ever-deeper furrows and become aware of the finiteness of life. The exhibition will examine old age without sentimentality yet with a sensitive and poetic attitude. The works in the show are all selected from the HAM collection. The show is curated by Jari Björklöv from HAM.
