Ohyra by Klara Lidén
2007, 4 min
Huvudpersonen i filmen Ohyra har på sig en boxningshjälm och ett vitt linne, en ovanlig klädsel för hushållsarbete, och börjar diska i köket. Efter en stund vänder hon sig till kameran och börjar raljera missnöjt över sig själv och sin ineffektivitet.
Utdrag från en text av Sophie O´Brien

Klara Lidén (f 1979 i Stockholm) arbetar tvärvetenskapligt och har både en arkitekt- och konstnärsutbildning som sin bakgrund. Hon använder video, installationer och fotografi för att engagera åskådaren i en subtil reflektion om sambandet mellan kropp och rum och hon äger förmågan att omvandla offentliga och privata utrymmen med kroppslig närvaro och känslan av rörelse.

Ang. Berivans Film by Berivan Erdogan
2019, 20:18 min

Berivan is currently working on her film, that is based upon her childhood memories of a controlling and abusive father. She is casting for the role of Kemal and does not share with the actors that Kemal is based on her father. While working with the actors, unprocessed memories comes back, which provokes conflict and sadistic tendencies in her. As she pushes the actors beyond their limits, the question of ethics arises. How far is Berivan willing to go to confront her own father?

Berivan Erdogan (b. 1989) is originally a Kurd from Turkey, born in Molde, Norway and raised in Oslo. She is working mainly on subjects concerning gender and power-relations within a multicultural society. She has two BA‘s: one from the Art Academy in Oslo and one in Film Directing from Akademin Valand in Gothenburg. Berivan also has an MA in Gender Studies from Gothenburg, and is currently studying a MA in Film at Valand. In her films and art projects, she is interested in exploring the topics of masculinity and violence.
