UTSIKT INIFRÅN (OUTLOOK FROM WITHIN)
Video, 11:28 min. 2016
This collaborative work emerged from the wish to experiment with forms for cinematic narratives while creating something on the theme of safety and threat. Me and sound designer Agnieszka Lewalski started up a conversation on this theme at the same time as we let our work (my drawings and her sounds) talk to each other. We wanted to break up the traditional forms for working with moving image and sound, and the hierarchy that says the image comes first. So we worked together, letting the sounds and images emerge side by side inspired by one another, while also talking person to person.
Our conversations revolved around womanhood, motherhood and the home. We put safety, subjectivity, concentrating on details and looking inwards against risks, objectivity, seeing wholes, reaching out, traveling, and threat. Our conversation went on continuously while working practically, and they changed and shaped the work.
