In the silent video projection people move in choreographic patterns at different locations in Sweden.
The work has been shown at museums and art spaces in Sweden and South Korea and originates from a Youtube-projekt Elin Mellerstedt and I started in 2010, Ensamdans. In the project we asked Swedes to film themselves dancing Kpop dance covers. At the time South Korean popculture was a small subculture in Sweden and most of the people dancing in the video are our friends and family. We ourselves are also dancing. Learning choreographies, recording each other and putting it up online became a thing we did together as a both joyful and scary challenge.
The project asks questions about bodies and their movement in different countries and contexts, online, in art spaces and museums.
