Where: Upplandsmuseet. Best seen from Gamla Torget/Östra Ågatan, see map
Upplandsmuseet’s facade is being brought to life through the light forces of projectors and site specific video design. Ingmar Bergman was a dreamer, a poetic storyteller with a fascination for subject matters most filmmakers would not dare to tackle. Instead of being driven to provide entertainment for his audience, although he did this too, he frequently wanted to challenge their views on matters such as death, religion and love. He often made his film characters fight the same demons he struggled with on a personal basis.
When immersing myself into the world of Ingmar Bergmans films I found some recurring themes which became the basis of this mapping project. The installation is an audiovisual collage where chosen characters from a selection of his films have a conversation with each other, monologues drive the visual story and us viewers get an insight into the mind of the complex genius that was Ingmar Bergman. The audience will recognise sections from films such as Persona, The Silence and Fanny and Alexander in the reworked video collage. The architecture and facade of Upplandsmuseet has given inspiration and is acting as projection surface for this audiovisual piece.
