Marte Aas is a Norwegian photographer and video artist with a special interest in urban cityscapes and residential areas. She explores ideological, political and social structures in the field between documentary and the staged. She is interested in how the structures that surrounds us in our daily lives affect us, as well as how they form our identity.

The works in the exhibition focus on the relationship between time, space and movement. Border areas between buildings and nature, between place and non-place and between harmony and collapse are mapped out through studies of urban development and migration. The uncertain state of such spaces raises questions about the future of those who use and inhabit them - us.
