This series of work by Fin Serck-Hanssen looks at life inside the walls of eight Norwegian prisons of varying degrees of severity. From the open prison at Bastøy to the more harsh lock up conditions at Ullersmo. But inside is always inside.

In the book project A Narrow Scene of Hypothetical Circumstances we access a visual universe revolving around dismembered pieces of familiar objects. Sketches, pictures and materials are united into a steady flow of everyday examination, in which apparent contradictions — painstaking exactitude and violence, empathy and calculation — bubble away beneath the surface. Rearrangement, representation and repression melt together on the border between construction and collapse, with an elegant sense of seriousness. The works are supplemented with texts by Friedrich Tietjen, Caroline Ugelstad, Leif Magne Tangen and Christopher Muller.
