Installation view from Kongsberg Kunstforening
4K Three channel video installation, 30:00, 2021
In this video installation, the viewer is presented with grand images, collected during an artist residency at Kunstkvarteret Lofoten, Leknes. The installation also contains an essay, presented as a voice over.
Lofoten 2020 takes its starting point in Lofoten as a site, and the visually well known landscape there. It is also strongly influenced by the 2020 pandemic that was going on during its production. In this work I wanted to investigate different kinds of alienation and borders being made visible in the wake of the pandemic, from the role of the tourist in Lofoten through the immigrant and the parasite.
