Ingun Bjørnsgaard often stages her fumbling, brutal and beautiful characters as they are crossing the boundary between restraint and spectacle. In Omega and the Deer they get lost in such a place, on the way to the forest, taken prisoner by their own shadows. There is a framework, which outlines different spaces and directions for our movements: our body, our gender, our sense of belonging to a place, our sociability, our past. This entails the perceptions and contrasts that shape us and create movement, friction, despair and melancholy. The piece addresses among other things the complex self-perception of the modern man, with references to the art of Edvard Munch.
