Lady of the Mine´s faces
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 260 000|
|Project duration||May 2018 - August 2018|
Purpose and goal
Värmlands Muséum used steel dresses designed by Naim Josefi to portray the Lady of the Mine on an exhibition in the summer of 2018. The purpose of the current project was to record films with a human Lady of the Mines, to complement the exhibition but, above all, appear in other contexts. The purpose is to inspire and raise interest in mineral and metal handling through exciting stories and the unexpected use of steel. The goal of publishing the story of Mine and the movies on the program´s website was achieved.
Expected results and effects
The direct result - the movies - exist and have been spread through social media. The expected effect is that young people watch the films and become interested in metals and minerals. Scope and impact for a single effort is very difficult to measure, but hopefully, the effort along with several other, similar actions in progress may reach the desired effect.
Planned approach and implementation
Before the exhibition "The Lady of the Mine´s Faces" at Långban´s mines, a human "Lady of the Mine" was photographed and filmed wearing a number of steel dresses in Långban galleries. The film was supplemented with a storytelling film from the opening. Allfilms are published on the program´s website.
