Porcelain Princess
BY
Magdalena Ljung (fd Dziurlikowska)

Porcelain Princess is a film about the artist and her mother. They disagree with each other, laugh at themselves, get angry and make peace. Scenes from every day life are mixed with interviews where they speak on their own or together. The themes partly overlap with the film Mother of Pearl but the discussions are different.

About the artist

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.
