Being one, Being two, Being several

Shown at Röda Sten in Göteborg 2006

Being one, Being two, Being Several is a sound art triptych where the three parts have been created in three existentially different situations in life. Being one was made 1996 and was part of a performance which was shown at Konstfack and Teater Trixter in Göteborg. In an untidy, dirty room a woman lies naked under the quilt. The public squeeze themselves in, it is narrow. When everybody is in, the door is closed and we can hear how it is being locked. The sound art piece Being one is heard from a small tape recorder. It is a kind of double exposure where a strict calendar voice repeats the exact actions of every date. As a contrast an inner voice describing longing and loneliness is heard.” Being two” was made 1998 and is a polyphonic collage composed of the stories of a group of couples, each telling how they met one another. In the beginning it was shown as a part of the installation/performance “That´s how it goes” in Norra Hammarbyhamnen. “ Being several” was made 2006 and comes from the acute experience of the fragility of life I felt during my pregnancy.
