Cakes for a New Millenium

A series of staged photography. 1997-1999

Inspired by the feminist slogan of the 1970's, « the personal is political « , I made a series of staged photography, where the traditional Norwegian  Kransekake ( almond-cake) symbolize my concerns about nationalism and xenophobia .

The Norwegian ”Kranse-kake”- table ( Almond- cake - table), is often enjoied during christian celebratory days, such as confirmation, christmas, weddings, baptism etc.
