Väx! An expanded cinema event at 13Festivalen 2023

Väx!-Grow! is a site-specific and participant-based artwork in the tradition of ”expanded cinema”. During the fall of 2022, the artists have collected plants on Konstepidemin´s land. The shapes and chemical structure of the plants have created photographic images directly on film. During 13Festivalen, the film is screened through collective work and as a ritual with the aim of evoking the light during the dark season. The film screening requires people to collaborate in dialogue with material, film, sound, the planet earth and the sun. A prayer that the ground will melt, seeds will sprout and grow again. Maria Magnusson is an artist, photographer and filmmaker who works with non-materialistic existential states of mind and connects to an experimental film tradition. Kajsa G. Eriksson is a visual artist who works site-specifically with myth, play and ritual within an experimental art tradition and is co-running Vague Research Studios.
