Trilogy

Three installations were made as a collaboration with Annica Karlsson Rixon here our separate backgrounds informed the works but the process of making it was a dynamic process of working as a duo. In this we also brought in touring and producing our work we became almost a micro institution a platform we called AVIEW nomad gallery.

Please see under submenu for more on each project

State of Mind 
Explores everyday life and the boundaries between ethics, legislation, prejudice and civic expectations in the LGBTQ-life of St. Petersburg, Russia focusing on lesbians and bisexual women. Leadership, democracy and human rights are central matters. The artists have been collaborating with organizations, activists and select individuals in St Petersburg during returning visits. (2006-2008)

Code of Silence
Personal and collective memory told by a sibling group of five who grew up on a small farm in rural Gothenburg, Sweden. The farm had to face the challenge of major agricultural reforms in the nineteenth century, but remained intact. It became a target for expropriation during the 1950´s and 70´s to make way for the reforms involved in building the modern Sweden.
(2008-2010/11 – work in progress)

Resonance
Focuses on a network of peers belonging to a successful generation of artists and curators. They are all women who entered the Scandinavian art scene in the 1990´s, and now have international careers. On one level Resonance is an examination of the Nordic welfare state. It looks into the impact of the conditions this creates for the portrayed women to succeed on the art scene. (2005-2006)

Three photograpy, video and sound installations 
The main narrative of the trilogy, of how and why groups construct networks and communities to achieve a sense of belonging are in focus. The projects look at the social conventions family, love and career and deal with power relations exemplified by issues of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and class. The method of collecting the material is similar in the three projects, but the questions asked and issues raised are specific to each installation. They reflect upon civil rights issues and the idea of being safe and productive within the society, operating in the space between personal choice and social expectations. Memory, narration, visual representation and oral history are central matters. In each of the three works a different group is approached that relates to the artists’ personal lives. Photography and video are used in combination to expand on the separate histories of the two media with regard to documentary genres. Portraiture and personally based stories are central. The trilogy was initiated in 2004 as project outlines. The projects relates to the tradition of Microhistory.ResonanceState of Mind and Code of Silence embodies reflections on visual representation, construction of identity and writing of history through three lens based art projects. The trilogy is presented as three separate art installations, which co-exist and cross-inform each other. In different ways these lens-based art installations cast light on aspects of socially and culturally constructed identity-based groups in contemporary society. Photography and video are used in combination to expand on the separate histories of the two media with regard to interviews and portraits in documentary genres. This is the point of departure for all three installations. As for the overall narrative, the topics of how and why groups construct networks and communities to achieve a sense of belonging are in focus. The projects look at the social conventions family, love and career and deal with power relations exemplified by issues of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and class. The method of collecting the material is similar in the three projects, but the questions asked and issues raised are specific to each installation. Portraiture and personally based stories are central.
