Filmform (est. 1950) is dedicated to preservation, promotion and worldwide distribution of experimental film and video art. Constantly expanding, the distribution catalogue spans from 1924 to the present, including works by Sweden’s most prominent artists and filmmakers, available to rent for public screenings and exhibitions as well as for educational purposes.
Out of the cracks of time is a black and white narrative, which progresses with the logic of a dream, we see a man wandering about in the world carrying a small bundle. Recollections and premonitions border his way. A small boy still lives within the man. The wordless narrative grows to an image of the cycle of life.
Lo Caidahl lived and worked in Gothenburg where he studied at the College of Photography and Film, and at Valands Academy of Art. He worked with video, photography, sound and objects but has also written two books on art and artists. His ‘Konstens anspråk’ (The Claims of Art) was published in 1999 and ‘Konstnärer i samtal’ (Conversations With Artists) in 2004. For some years, he was the publisher of the art magazine ‘Paletten’. In later years he became increasingly interested in the encounter between sound and moving pictures and has co-operated with the sound art group 8tunnel2.
