Through dreamy landscapes of visions and fantasies ‘Reported Missing’ takes us through a world of feelings. The video begins with a bittersweet sadness. It describes the loss of someone or maybe a farewell. Gradually the viewer becomes aware of being on a journey which is so universal that it suddenly becomes part of all of us. ´So can you still feel me / or am I vanished away / Hey, do you still love me after all this time / So, I hope you are feeling all right / I’m still thinking of you every day / And I don’t know when I’ll return back / Don’t know if this trip will ever come to an end´

About the artist

Petra Lindholm

Petra Lindholm (b. 1973 in Karis, Finland) lives and works in Småland, Sweden. She is educated at the Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm (1996–2001). She has exhibited at galleries, museums and institutions in Sweden, Finland, Germany, Poland, Italy and the US. Petra Lindholm works mainly with video, textile and sound. Her films do not have a specific narrative structure. They are focused on nuances and changes in color and image; which creates a tense atmosphere rather than a clear-cut story. Lindholm often depicts situations that are easily recognizable or phenomena in the environment, where the real and ordinary things seem unreal. She composes the music for the films and sings herself. In 2001 she received the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation’s Artist Award, 2002 the FilmForm Award and in 2006 she won third prize in the Carnegie Art Award. In 2018 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm awarded her the prestigious Axel Theofron Sandberg Prize. Her works are represented in the collections of Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Malmö Konstmuseum, Borås Konstmuseum, Västerås Konstmuseum, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki. EMMA–Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Finland, ProArtibus, Finland among others. In recent years she has completed a number of larger public commissions working with site-specific sculptures and installations.
