catalogue text "Mörkrets Hjärta" , Göteborgs Konsthall




"BREAKING THE LAW"
2-channel videoinstallation 3 min X 2
installationview Göteborgs Konsthall 2004-2005.
A wall of 4 meter X 5 meter was standing diagonally in the room and on each side there was a projection.

It is an alchemical gangsterdrama where it is unclear who is the good or bad guy.

UBÅT / SUBMARINE




In 1996 I built this submarine. It does not travel by water neither by land but via drawings. The visitor was driven around in a dark room viewing 100 drawings through the periscope that had a light on it. The trip somewhat resembeld a primitive animated film.

GORILLA GODDESS GANGSTER AND THE GOBLINS

A video myth by Lisa Jeannin and Rolf Schuurmans

G G G & G is a story with multiple space and time facets, in which the fragments are so charged and communicative that the interlaced entity paradoxically becomes natural and self-evident.

G G G & G is about mental spaces, models of projection for questions with regard to reality’s chaos and the complicated obviousnesses of life. From time to time a hall of mirrors is described in which identity is questioned and the monument of reality collapses. Here an inquisitive gorilla can discover herself in thousands versions with the aid of her filming camera eye; or it is also possible that a frustrated and lonely gangster shoots the mirrors into pieces, maybe to keep his enigmatic nature intact. But soon the looping restores this hall of mirrors.

G G G & G is about the coming into existence from magical rituals performed by small colourful trolls, about the loneliness of the gangster in a world revealing its built-in fiction, about the green goddess’s lust for creation and destruction in front of a sterile civilization, about positive identity solutions as a strategy to welcome and form a larger reality, about the return to nature and the green and about the spider’s fantasy and the public’s fantasy and fantasy as a subversive force aimed against order and reason who threaten humour and human dignity with death.
