Marie Grönlund & Karin Grönlund

ON was created in Video Nu’s new studio for Stockholm’s first international video festival in The House of Culture (Kulturhuset). Video Nu had finally purchased new equipment and started an exploration and experimentation with the possibilities of video, behind and in front of the camera. In ON, the artists used a VHS-camera and filmed each other, watched themselves on the screen, wrote texts in the camera, while they were being filmed and mixed. They had a strong common experience of living in the present moment and being ON the screen. ON is an improvised work and was created by the desire to look at ourselves.
