Closed circuit (In the middle of Sweden), 2011, 3’01”
The video is inspired by the painting “In the middle of Sweden” (1972-73) by Peter Tillberg and shows a quiet residential street somewhere in Sweden. The camera moves constantly along the street, enters a large hole and is “swallowed” by a huge chewing mouth, re-emerging again on the same street. This time the setting is darker and the sky is red. The camera goes on the road once again and follows the same hole, this time leading to a giant intestine that “we” go through, to find ourselves again on the same road … and the cycle begins again.
