Noemi Sjöberg

While watching my footage from Morocco, I started playing atthe “Rear window”, making several “zooms” in one singletake filmed at the Square Jemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech. Littleby little, I began to discover thousands of stories in onesingle clip. The game and voyeurism turned a single sceneinto infinite possible intrigues. Multiple parallel lives,each in its fragile bubble, are revealed in a short moment.Through the film, we can sort of see how human beings livedisconnected from each other and how society is obsessed withcapturing moments of life for no other purpose. We are gazingat a show of animals, beings. While editing this video, I hadthe opportunity to show an unusual view of a banal scene. Iimagined, as if the scene had been recorded by a CCTV cameraand was a kind of “Big Brother”.

About the artist

Noemi Sjöberg

Noemi Sjöberg uses the video medium to observe and put into perspective the reality that surrounds her. Always looking for situations that break with the ordinary. She has filmed in many countries: Turkey, Japan, Iran, USA, Morocco, Egypt, India, China, Mongolia. Traveling sharpens her senses and forces her to be in a deep state of observation. 3 axes are central in her work: the human condition as time passes; the altered perception of reality and the sensory immersion that sharpens our senses.

Her work has been seen in Sweden: Färgfabriken Norr Östersund,Vandalorum Värnamo, Skanstulls subway Stockholm, Biografen Sture, Cinemateket “Out of Place” program Stockholm.

As well as internationally: Galería ATC Tenerife, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Museum Pola Annex Tokyo, MACRO Testaccio Rome, Centre d’art contemporain l’Atelier d’Estienne Pont-Scorff , IFFR, International Film Festival Rotterdam, 25th International Short Film Week Regensburg, Rooftop Film Festival New York, Festival tous courts Aix en Provence, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, European Film Festival Palić Serbia.
