THIS IS THE PLACE (2001)
This is the Place. Installation view Malmö Konstmuseum, 2008.
Color video projection with sound, 5’30 min.

A poetic narrative, decomposing and recomposing film as narrative structure. Images from the film Native Land are combined with text by Lina Selander. A story is told from different point of views; a personal destiny is conjured out of a field of tension between image, sound and text. But none of the layers submits to the other. The place is both where it happened—was written—and where it takes place now, in front of the spectator.
Music by G. Mahler.
