Wir sind wieder da
Annika Eriksson

The film is set in an urban non-space in Berlin – an area with a few scattered pieces of discarded furniture. This in between space appears to operate on its own time, maintaining the stubborn calm of non-activity. A group of punks hang out in the darkness; they smoke and drink as their dogs roam free. A form of resistance is implied, the resistance residing within passivity. It is a vision containing both the echo from a recent past and temporally ambiguous vision of a dystopic time to come.

About the artist

Annika Eriksson

Annika Eriksson is originally from Malmö and lives in Berlin since 2002. At the center of her artistic practice is an interest in social interaction: how do we live together, what kind of societies do we create, and what happens in the margins or in the transition from one social order to another? In her work, the social has always involved a key emphasis on the slippages between the one ME into others – with a return to questions of interaction and exchange, circular forms of communication, self-abnegation and empathy. Her project also engages with the relations between humans and animals; of our interdependence, slippages and connection, but also registers of violation, and the animal as a distinctively human projection surface. She has been exhibiting since the early 90s in various biennales and institutions, for example the biennales in Istanbul, Venice, Sao Paolo, Shanghai and Vienna; in institutions such as Bonner Kunstverein, Tate Liverpool, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Hayward Gallery, London and Moderna Museet, Malmö and Stockholm.
