Experiencing Interruptions?

Room Study (Body)

Based on a true story of a murder case solved by psychic abilities, Room Study (Body) presents still images from a peculiar angle of a room, as if the camera (or somebody) is laying on the floor. A voice speaks to us, through the subtitles in the video, describing their own murder.

* Room Study (Body) was originally shown as a video installation as part of the exhibition — We Have A Visitor, http://www.victoriaskogsberg.com/wehaveavisitor_instal.html

Director Statement

My art practice is based around an interest in existential, spiritual and psychical experiences, in relation to atmosphere, spatiality and the psychology of space. My particularly interest is in the notion of ‘the empty room’, absence and presence and the possibility of rooms and interiors somehow communicating feelings and ideas to us.

Through experimenting with materials from ‘captured’ experiences of spaces, moods, extraordinary events and scientific studies, I develop atmospheric, investigatory video and installation works based on the interaction between the physical room and its interiority, the constructed installation, the moving image and the human psyche of the visitor.
