Saskia Holmkvist work hovers between the language of fiction and documentary in an attempt to get hold of the apparent reality that is being presented to us. By looking at the construction of what we perceive as true, credible, authentic or entertaining Saskia Holmkvist wants to investigate the constituent parts of what builds up trustworthiness. She turns herself directly towards the experience of the viewer and in many of her works one is invited to reveal a case. The work with text plays a central role in her work. Even so does the work with the different characteristics of genres. This is clearest in the films Interview with Saskia Holmkvist 2005 and Eight Martini 2004.
