FRAMFÖR TEVEN



A half-eaten chocolate bar starts melting in their lap, and the milk has still not been put in the refrigerator.
The passive being, supposedly content eating crisps in front of the TV, reflects upon their situation: is it really that bad?

*Commissioned by Tendency Towards for the Fertiliser exhibition that took place in the W OR M during November 2017.

“Framför Teven” (translating to “In front of the TV”) was commissioned as a part of the Fertiliser exhibition in Aberdeen, Scotland, displaying the existential being of existing in a space without being truly present.
Filmed in Stockholm, it is influenced by my relationship to Sweden and its openness to gender and sexuality. Hence, the film is presented in Swedish, and has parts borrowed and tweaked from Swedish poet Edith Södergran’s poem “Den väntande Själen” (“The Waiting Soul”).
