27 Kilometer Drawing
BY
Lina Selander

Wires filmed through the window of a moving train. A road movie reduced to a black and white abstract flow which shows stillness, time and movement in one single entirety. The linear cinematic narration is reduced to lines and surfaces, to a dramaturgic point zero a minimalistic diagram of cinematic action, but also of emptiness and loneliness.

About the artist

Lina Selander

Born 1973, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Lina Selander works mainly with moving images in film and video, but also with photography, text and sound. Her works are often installations where these different medias and components converge and interrelate to one another. She is interested in the image’s ability and lack of ability to reproduce time, experience and memories and she explores how different narrative forms and techniques transform and change a story. Her works investigate film as medium, examining its possibilities and limitations as form of expression, and they often raise questions about history, media archeology and authenticity.

Selander’s work has been shown at Index, The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Moderna Museet and in international group shows, biennales and festivals, for example in the Manifesta 9 in Genk, Bucharest Biennale 2010, the Media Art Biennale in Seoul, Korea. She will represent Sweden in the next Venice Biennale 2015.
