For more than ten years, my work has been dealing with the theatricality of everyday lifeand questions the representation of the collective unconscious. In the staging of these images I try to reconstruct the recent past that is fading from our memory, linking personal genealogical issues with a shared collective experience. The frame is treated as a stage, full of anonymous actors who perform in front of the curtains of an imaginary theatre. Often these actors come from documents that I inherited (tied to my Swedish roots) or are the result of an arduous selection process from different archives. The contemporary use of evidence and documentary traces, offers a new dimension and life to the image. I like to interpret it as a gift… and in this same way, share it with the audience.
