Video from Out of the Inside by Eli Maria Lundgaard
Lundgaard explores how language, stories, histories, myths and memories form our understanding of reality and our view of both ourselves and our environment. Where is the boundary between the subject and all that lies beyond it? Who actually exists inside the self? Both the inside and the outside leak through to each other and negotiate with and change each other.
In this video, Lundgaard talks about the exhibition at the North Norwegian Art Center.
