Technique: Audio, Mixed media
8 channel sound installation. Burnt ground and grass in a circle. In the piece, The Exclusion, I want to explore the collective boundaries through laughter and wordless language. The laughter and the circle creates a stage in where I want to high- light the power struggle and ambivalence of being left out or kept in the society/collec- tive. A laugh can be perceived pleasurable and inclusive and then a few minutes later the same laughter can be perceived as frightening and exclusive. The starting point for this work was a satirical joke about my mother in the book Fnitter - Even more giggles a fun book of Women from 1983, and the consequences
of that joke. I was 9 years old at the time and I felt like the whole world was laughing at my mother for all eternity...
