ROOM TO LIVE

 

The recordings are made in Tehran (Iran) and Nittedal (Norway)

 

The documentary videos are approx. 10 minutes in duration and are shown simultaneously on 2 adjacent walls using projectors

 

In these videos I wish to explore the different situations in which women from Norway and Iran create a space in which they are able to express themselves.

 

I wish to show the reality that I observe and illustrate its context out from my own references. To turn around and look, use the power of reality to force me to see and remind others to see that individuals even when functioning as individuals are also functioning as organs of the larger group.

 

My political consciousness, my commitment and my own life are the references and driving force of my artistic expression. My background as a journalist has made me aware of the dynamic that arises in the interaction of the individual to the greater relational context and how these contexts are active in forming the human character

The Birdgirl is one of five documentary videos about how women survive.

Every woman is living in a world dominated by male logic

It features the daily life of an eight year old Iransk girl. She does not have any goods to sell, but she is creative, she is a fortune teller. With the help of her assistant, a budgerigar, who symbolises her connection to the unconscious inner world, she predicts the future. Nothing seems logical, but there is a truth,she manages to make a living outside the male dominated logical world.
