Perception of time and space


















Lena Mattsson – SWE Perception of time and space – Monumental audiovisual projection in 3 parts Music: Conny C-A Malmqvist

Lena Mattsson's new films "Perception of time and space" are site-specific and edited to be projected on the islands of Hästen, Vallevik and Smögens cliffs to collaborate with the shape and historical context of the red Bohuslän granite cliffs. The films reveal the common identity that we share in the experience and memory of the landscapes we come from, which in this particular case is also her own origin.

While highlighting the natural and cultural landscape, and the importance of the environmental aspect for its survival, the films problematize a romantic nature experience through various distortions, interpretations and questioning of the original site. Instead, we are allowed to enter as visitors into a magical world, a place poetry that can only be understood in an interweaving of history and present where we acknowledge humility for nature and for each other.
