"Ulrika Stahre see Sharon Hayes beautiful exhibition ”Echo”"
"At the venice biennale six years ago, in 2013, it was a work which, despite massive competition and stress, caught my attention in a way that I was not wise. Sharon Hayes, Ricerche: Three, a film in which the artist interviews young women, college students."
"All outdoors. They stand up, like a choir or a football team. The microphone, wandering between those who have something to say for the moment, some talk more, others less. As a long and fairly stagnant story."
"that highlights the fact that young people are so open and smart, so aware of their place in the world and the world's place in them. Sexuality, relationships, politics – all are discussed and linked together."
"nwhen Sharon Hayes now displayed in large format in the museum of Modern art is Ricerche: Three, of course. The simplicity appears to be extremely apparent. Hayes rytmiserar it visual by using small means to vary the visibility. Young people at a college in Massachusetts, Mount Holyoke College, which only accepts women. A protected world, or an isolated."
"Ricerche: Three is a part of a triptych that is inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolinis Comizi d'amore – a survey of the Italian people's views on sex and relationships in the midst of the now glorified the 1960s. Freedom time."
"the other two parts in the piece are linked with each other – small and young adults regnbågsbarn talking about the emergence of life from their various perspectives. The birds fly and the sand, dizzy occasionally, otherwise it is almost spooky the pacific around the kids."
"This concentration and clarity live on in a more sharpened way in the great work In my little corner of the world, anyone would love you, a femkanalig projection of the different populated home environments, where a woman at a time talking. All the reading texts and letters from feminist and lesbian magazines, and the large time span, 1955 to 1977, is at first confusing, then exciting. "
"a Lot happened these years, then identitetskampen gained a foothold and took off. For some reason I will think of both Bill Viola and Balthus, though no one of them has with the lesbian identity and the struggle to make. It is Viola's meditative stillness and Balthus evocative of life in the vegetative, the rebellion of a superficial passivity."
"nKvinnorna in the film sitting at a desk, lies in a bed, hanging in the kitchen. Letters by content, ranging from ångestriden solitude to the analysis of a lesbian fight, creating a chorus of contemporary life. Throughout the exhibition, the Echo oscillates between now and then, between kampaffischer from the 1970s, and the highly contemporary regnbågsbarnen, between Patty Hearst and an early Pride march analysed and annotated from our contemporary vantage point."
"the Echo was certainly the nymph in Greek mythology who faded away in unrequited love to Narcissus, but she reigns in all of the scenery and will never be forgotten."
