The Village Wash
Stina Wirfelt

The Village Wash investigates the space and time that make up the mundane action of waiting in a laundrette. The TV is showing the film Earthquake (Robson 1974) and as everything starts trembling on the screen, the washing machines start their spin-cycle which causes the plants on top of them to shake. The film plays with the boundary of coincidental events and highly choreographed set-ups.

About the artist

Stina Wirfelt

Stina Wirfelt is an artist based in Scotland and Sweden. Her work identifies and constructs points where different stories meet and merge. These concurrent narratives can be coincidental or scripted, or both. An underlying theme is the mind’s constant search for “meaning” and how knowledge is made and constructed. Since graduating with an MFA from Malmö Art Academy in 2007 she has participated in LUX Associate Artist Program in London.
