The exhibition ,,Yours, mine, ours" opens in Naflinn, Laugarnesvegi 91- October 7th at 5-7 PM.
Yours, mine, ours Dental health is important, but decisions related to it often revolve around beauty standards rather than the health of the individual undergoing correction. Our teeth are an important part of our identity. When a person goes to orthodontics, he puts himself in the hands of a specialist and loses some control over what is done to the teeth. Loses control of his body. The gums are hardened, teeth are moved, scraped and the mouth is shaped in all sorts of ways. There is a certain vulnerability in losing control of one's own body. In a way, orthodontics are cosmetic procedures, the gums and jaws are shaped to form 'desirable' shapes, which are more suitable for the daily work of the teeth and for people to look better. Many people have experience with orthodontics and experience being insecure in their own body in some way. With this work, I want to reflect on the importance of a healthy self-image and therefore not allow it to be distorted and stretched in a process like orthodontics. When we smile, we open up to the outside world, whether our gums are white or yellow, whether they have braces, are decorated with crooked or straight teeth.
From September 30th to December 2nd a series of 24 solo shows by 3rd year students in Fine Art will be taking place in Laugarnes.
