Until 28 February 2016, the Moderna Museet, in Stockholm, in Sweden, welcomes an exhibition of the works of Lina Selander.
One of the most important Swedish video artist, Lina Selander is known for her works, films and installations, made as models of thought and observation archives, combining dialogues with other arts and reflections on reports between language and image, perception and memory. In addition to the Venice Biennale, where she exhibited at the Swedish Pavilion from 9 May to 22 November 2015, the exhibition here presents three installations: The Hours that Hold the Form (A Couple of Days in Portbou) (2007), The Offspring Resembles the Parent (2015) and Around the Cave of the Double Tombs (2010).
“Selander juxtaposes temporal images, uncovering a rift between intent and result, and explores the potential of film to examine issues such as these. The works here revisit ideas of boundaries – experiences of powerlessness and flight, or the attempts to maintain a zone where some are owners and others own,” says curator Lena Essling.
