UR MÖRKER / OUT OF DARKNESS - a dimness from which the light emerges.
The performance Out of Darkness (Ur mörker) is based on Carmen Olsson's dense body language.
Watercolour monotypes by Arne Isacsson, one of Sweden's most renowned watercolour artists, are projected and enlarged to monumental format in the performance.
During a long collaboration, Carmen followed Arne Isacsson, in his experimental attempt to uncover dark pigments from rich water flows - visualizing an obscurity from which the light emerges. The performance had its final form in collaboration between Carmen Olsson Claes Ekström.
