Heli Rekula's photographs are presented in group exhibition Lips Painted Red at Trondheim kunstmuseum, Norway. Lips Painted Red is a project examining how female identities are created and maintained as daily routines, as experiments with personal or social life styles, as consequences of discomfort with gender expectations or with gender displacement. It examines these strategies through a variety of artists’ approaches – male and female, transgender, and of several generations – and through texts written by scholars for the forthcoming catalogue. The exhibition is Trondheim Kunstmuseum's contribution to the centenary of women's right to vote in Norway. It is curated by TKM director Pontus Kyander.

The exhibition is open 22.6.–15.9.2013.
