Do you love me or not, Stockholm?

Three channel installation, performance and HD video, 2016
Sound by Nadine Byrne

An enormous building net accidentally released itself from a chimney nearby my studio in an old industrial area just outside Stockholm. In a city where everything problematic, dangerous or wild is always tended to immediately it was strange to see the enormous texture floating freely in the wind. Months went by, but nobody took care of the beautiful problem. I loved how the image of the city became relocated in scale, time and feeling, like a surrealistic slow motion effect in reality. What are the special effects in the city that we are not thinking about because they are there everyday? What is the relationship between how much intimacy you feel with a city and how fortunate you feel in that certain city? Can you be loved by a city?
