27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Fragments of a body chiseled from darkness carve out a study of a nude female figure, sensual at specific moments, and in places disappearing into digital darkness. A lyrical treatise on intimacy and secrecy and an implicit polemic with a voyeuristic gaze create a longing for constrained completeness.
"I dissect the perception and the mental state that arise while being watched, penetrated and examined and the experience of the viewer, involuntary being forced to follow the gaze of the camera." T. Kjellmark
Swedish visual artist Tove Kjellmark (1977) experiments with film and various forms of gallery installations. In her conceptual works, she uses traditional media as well as new technologies, exploring their influence on the viewer’s perception. Often working in cooperation with scientists and neurologists, Kjellmark explores mechanisms of human thinking and existential questions of being with a focus on the human body and its relationship to the development of robots.
