Earlier today I went to the opening of Mette Bersang and Louise Bøgelund Saugmann’s exhibition “Suspended between breathing in and breathing out” in the subterranean passage between the Panum Institute and the Danish National Hospital (Rigshospitalet) in Copenhagen (see announcement and flyer here). It’s a fairly small exhibition (only 14 pictures) of photos of interieurs of lab benches, storage rooms, instruments etc. from two clinics/laboratories. Soft colours (ink jet print on aluminium), no people visible, only traces and remains of their activities. A series of aesthetically very pleasing works that would fit nicely on the walls in the lunch room, but in my mind don’t raise any questions — perhaps other than: where goes the line between aesthetic and documentary photography?
