“State of Mind” – Annica Karlsson Rixon and Anna Viola Hallberg
“State of Mind” is a photo and video based art installation created within the framework of artistic research. The project explores everyday life of lesbian and bi-sexual women by highlighting the boundaries between ethics, legislation, prejudice and civic expectations in the LGBTQ life of St Petersburg, Russia

State of Mind is a photo and video based art installation created within the framework of artistic  research. The project explores everyday life of lesbian and bi-sexual women by highlighting the boundaries between ethics, legislation, prejudice and civic expectations in the LGBTQ life of St Petersburg, Russia.

State of Mind is a result of a long-term trust-building process, and this trust demands ethic responsibility in return. One of the main conditions for the creating of the art project was a double  positioning. On the one hand, entering as outsiders with the perspective of two foreigners who are visitors to a country where they have no command of the language or the cultural codes, on the other with an insider’s access to a network of lesbian and bisexual women established during numerous visits to St Petersburg. A number of dilemmas are faced working with State of Mind, one being the complexity of making documentary material. What strategies can we use to avoid exploitation of the portrayed? Another is approaching a group that is visually underrepresented. What kind of image should we present?

In the presentation they will focus on the production of the imagery and how this is directly linked to strategies used to transmit multilayered experiences into the exhibition context. (Text: Christina Dege)
