Mikaela’s voice
BY
Marit Lindberg

Mikaela, 18 years old, is telling us stories and memories from her own life. Her voice is clear but the image on the screen is blurred. After a while it becomes clear why the picture is so difficult to discern: Mikaela is blind.

About the artist

Marit Lindberg

Born in Stockholm 1961, lives and works in Malmö. Marit Lindberg primarily works with video and performance, creating and exploring social situations, often linked to a place or a historical / political event.

The starting point can be a situation that develops into a story in which place, personal memories, oblivion, the collective or intimate secrets create their own logic. What is not supposed to be shown in public is displayed. Intimate conversations can be amplified and secret ailments shouted out over a square. In one film the story is cut out and only the intermediate shots where the director directs his actor remain. The works are intensely present through the voices of the participants at the same time as they can be seen as comments on major political and social events.
Marit Lindberg’s films and performances have been shown in various locations in Sweden and internationally, including Malmö konsthall, Malmö, Uppsala Short Film Festival, Göteborg Film Festival, The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, Museum of Modern Art, MAC Usp, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Paco das Artes, SP, Brazil, Achtung Berlin, Berlin, Kasseler Dokumentarfilm Fest, Germany, Kiosk, Athens, Greece, Ititnary performancefestival, NY 2012-2017, Marit Lindberg worked with the artist group Carousell, a video research project that was shown at the Konstnärshuset in Stockholm (2017). Lindberg’s works are represented at, among others, Moderna Museet, Stockholm and Malmö Art Museums, Malmö.
