In The Archives you follow a searching through an analogue archives, where the references just leads on until you’re back on the starting-point. There is a contrast between the amount of information and this searching which doesn’t lead anywhere. There seems to be a missing person, both in reality and in the archives. In the end of the film, the archives comes alive and the drawers starts to move in and out, as if the archives deliberately withholds the information.
Born 1976, works in Stockholm, Sweden. Graduated from School of Photography at Göteborg University in 2006. Elgeholm mainly works with video, where she uses different kinds of narratives, from video essay and documentary to animations and staged situations with actors. The video pieces are sometimes complemented by photographies and drawings. The viewer is involved with her own ideas and notions, and Elgeholm often alludes intertextually to our common frames of references within film, music, litterature and everyday situations.
During the last few years, Elgeholm has mainly dealed with religious questions. For example interpretations of the Bible and the belief in ‘the end of days’, or how religious thinking is created through mythogenesis and conspiracies. Elgeholm also examines our tendency to believe in fantastic coincidences outside of what we traditionally call religion.
