Riturnella

Solo exhibition, Stenersenmuseet, Oslo
14 January – 14 March 2010

 

The exhibition is entitled Riturnella, which is an equivocal term drawn from a traditional Southern Italian song. Its beautiful lyrics invoke emigration and dreams of a better life. The song belongs to a time that seems remote from our own, but social relations in Southern Italy remain complicated. This is also the region of the country where most of the refugees from Africa arrive by boat. The military effort to combat the “illegals” is carried out alongside mafia activities in the region. Neither “illegal” immigration nor the mafia would have come about in a just society with basic rights for all. Lange´s exhibition title does not simply address migration, but also the return of authoritarian and racist ideologies, and the struggle against these ideologies.
