During this residency Johanna Malm, Ruby Nilsson and Christopher Lloyd will start up what will eventually become a piece (title TBA) premiering at Inkonst in August.
In the spring, the digital prologue will be shown at Inkonst’s channels.
The work brings the tradition of the still life, particularly the vanitas, to the stage and rubs it against the temporality of the theatre event. It regards this event as inherently being at loss; since it’s beginning it’s inevitably moving towards its end; its
birth an omen. A site of transcience & finitude, crammed up between voices from the underworld and predictions of what is to come (it doesn’t look too good). In this space there is this feminine body moving about; at times she resembles the Lolita figure, the
hypersexualized girl child as image, ghost and currency. She dwells on the process of decay, projections of decomposing desirability and the arrows of time, quite literally.
