A Child / Ett Barn (2015-16)

-Film, one channel video, mp4, 6:48 minutes

-------------------------------------------------

ARTIST STATEMENT:

“A Child is a short film investigating the dual aspect of the state of the foetus being pure and unaffected yet easily impressionable. Although well protected in the mother’s womb, it is already being exposed to different sounds and touch, and thus, inevitably being shaped by its surroundings through its mother’s activities.


The work is a humoristic take on the celebration of the complexity of the pregnant body and the state of a physical and mental transformation of both mother and baby, through which each affects the other beyond comprehension.”


   





A Child was shortlisted for Brood Film Fest - the first international short film festival in the world dedicated to the subject of early parenthood.


The festival was premiered at Studio 74, Exeter Phoenix in England. And later published for the 90 minutes-online screening at Diep (Digital institute for early parenthood).
