Told You So is an animated video, showing a psychological power-struggle between two people. During a short dialogue, that from the start seems rather harmless, a provoking and manipulative tactic starts to shine through. The purpose with this tactic is to achieve a result and gain triumph.
Born 1971 in Eskilstuna, Sweden. Currently living and working in Stockholm.
Cecilia Lundqvist started out with painting, but now works foremost with video and animation. She manages to treat difficult subjects, often from a personal, feminist perspective with a sharp sense of humour. Her artistic expression stretches from the play with simplified, raw lines, in Disco for instance from 1997, to the use of the animation media in a more sophisticated way, as in Emblem from 2001. Cecilia’s video works are shown frequently worldwide and has received recognition in the art and film world alike. Her work is generally narrative and deal with issues like domestic violence, power structures and human behaviour.
She is represented with video works at several art institutions, among them Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Educated at Royal Collage of Art, Video Department and University Collage of Arts, Crafts & Design, Art Department, Stockholm, Sweden. In 2004, Cecilia Lundqvist received Filmform’s Honorary Award because of the focused way she has developed her artistry over the years.
