Det finns inga gränser för vad jag kan göra
BY
Magdalena Ljung (fd Dziurlikowska) & Richard Dinter

Richard portrays a petty thief walking around his home speaking about all the things he’s stolen. He hasn’t bought anything: not the fruit in the bowl, not the tooth brush… and by the way, not even the apartment is his. The story evolves into the story of his life; starting with small thefts with his father and ending at the fact that he now is a father himself and has to stop with this bad habit. Most people have shoplifted and everyone pilfers from their workplace, but still people claim that they don’t steal.

About the artists

Magdalena Ljung (fd Dziurlikowska)

Magdalena Ljung (fd Dziurlikowska)

Magdalena Ljung, f.d. Dziurlikowska (b. 1975 in Warsaw) lives and works in Stockholm. She received her MA from Konstfack University of Arts and Crafts and works predominately with video.

Magdalena Ljung’s video works linger on the crossroads between documentary and fiction. Her themes originate from her own life, she plays herself and interpret existential questions, hardships and adventures. The starting point is the self-experienced and the script is based upon such, while the imagery is symbolic and associative. Everyday life, surrealism, humour and feminism become a narrative which encompasses a personal story and the wider contemporary sphere.

Magdalena Ljung’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums such as Eskilstuna konstmuseum, Kulturhuset and Liljevalchs konsthall, and at film festivals, such as Tempo Documentary Festival, Uppsala and Oberhausen international short film festivals. Ljung is also an art critic for the daily press and a guest teacher at art schools.

Richard Dinter

Richard Dinter

Born in 1964 in Stockhom, Sweden, where he is still based.

Started out as a poet and radioproducer. After some years he got interested in combining the sound and the words with the motion picture and started to work with both shortfilms and more experimental videos. His shortfilm ”My Croatian nose” was shown at festivals such as Indielisboa and Hot Docs to name a few. Some of his artfilms/experimentals, such as ”There are no limits to what I can do”, have been shown at both shortfilm and artfilm festivals both in Sweden and abroad.

“My art is often regarded as deeply personal and flavoured with a subtle sense of humour. I use myself as a creative tool in my productions since I strongly believe that being personal is being universal. Identity, obsession, and memory are some of the subjects I deal with in my art.”
