Theresa Traore Dahlberg
Three films, three women, and three different perspectives on labor and life. Through the works of Eva Linder, Theresa Traore Dahlberg and Gunvor Nelson we get to experience brief but deep portrayals of three women’s lives. Ranging in medium, location and tonality the films speak about matters big and small: humor, family, pride, self-realization, the daily grind and the labor of pushing forward life itself. Anna Linder’s work 13 Related Sewing Machines is shown on loop in connection with the physical programme. The work reflects on women’s repetitive and invisible work and the declining use of sewing machines in everyday life today.
