An Instance Of Appearing - 2009
Victoria Skogsberg

In An Instance Of Appearing the video footage shows what looks like a faint reflection of a woman’s face on a switched off TV monitor. The woman looks right at the viewer and at random times cries out a primal scream that echoes throughout out the exhibition space. The scream last only seconds.

Are You There? (2003)
format: video
duration: 30 second, loop
Are You There? utilises Morse code, an early form of digital communication. In the video a shadowy figure holds a bright light, which relays the message. Only those who understand this marginalised form of language are able to read the code but quite simply it says Are You There?
