Påminnelse

Reminder

Video installation, 2015

 

 

 

Featuring: Anna Belstock, Varja Berg, Hanna Widgren, Juli Apponen, Sabina Zupanc, Amanda Krüger

 

Three pair of actresses are doing a mirroring exercise. One in each pair starts talking about a personal memory which she feels unsure of, whilst the other tries to mimic during the exact same time. In between the scenes they are talking freely.

Photographic series, 2014

 

Exhibited in Hungry Eyes, Galleri Platform, 2014.

 

A photographic series consisting of three images. The originial portraits are taken from front pages of a german lesbian magazine published between 1926-1930.

 

I re-photographed the portraits and used a mirror to add the reflection from the sun on their eyes.

Repliken

The line

Video, 2013

 

Actors: Ida Mirow, Niki Yrla, Sabina Zupanc, Elliot Lundegård

 

I asked the actors to tell the same line, five times over. I looked at the actors through the camera while I was directing them.

The line is taken from the movie Persona by Ingmar Bergman

Casting

Video, 2013

 

In Casting I imitate the character Eva in En Kärlekshistoria.

 

Finalist in Pocket Cinema, Bonniers Konsthall, 2013.

Bibi, Edie, Jean

Video installation, 2012

 

In Bibi, Edie, Jean I mimic scenes from three feature movies: Bibi Andersson in Persona,

Edie Sedgwijk in Poor Little Rich Girl

and Jean Seberg in À bout de souffle.

 

I was interested in a certain notion of femininity and wanted to investigate how the act of imitation could be a tool for expanding this notion.
