I AM HERE
Peter Norrman and Anders Birgersson
Exhibited at Dunkers Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsingborg, Sweden November 2014 - March 15, 2015.
The project aims at bridging the geographical and emotional gap that exists between life in a
refugee camp (Jamam, South Sudan) and life in the western world (Sweden). It has previously (2013) been manifested as a documentary art installation shown in the 2 largest shopping centers in Sweden - Stockholmand Gothenburg - and in the largest and busiest public square in Malmö.
The artists travelled to Maban district, a barren and unforgiving landscape that is home to hundreds of thousands of refugees. They filmed everyday life in the camp with a specifically designed four-camera rig as well as single camera testimonials, resulting in a 37 minute 4 channel cube installation, surrounding the viewer, immersing them in the situation, and effectively removing the physical and emotional distance between the two worlds.
Full Installation, Dunkers Culture Center, Sweden 2015.
