MF Programme

«This Is How We Walk on the Moon» – videos by Johanna Billing (Sweden)

It is hard to say what interests the Swedish video artist Johann a Billing more - experimental music or dance, performance arts or social sciences. For one of her projects she invited the Stockholm art college graduates, young people of various professions, frequently clumsy and awkward, to rehearse an experimental dance together and watched the results.

For another project she sent local Edinburg musicians and freshwater sailors on their first ocean voyage accompanied by an ironic soundtrack of the same name, This Is How We Walk On The Moon. Johanna said this was caused by the fact that Edinburg is quite close to the sea yet the lives of most of the city's inhabitants are completely unconnected to the sea.

Another film of the artist, Project For a Revolution, is a tribute to a scene in "Zabriskie Point" by Michelangelo Antonioni, a key work to gain an isight on hippy culture and the events of May 1968, when enthusiasm and energy gave place to boredom and disilliusionment. A group of student in Billing's film sits tense and passive waiting for something that will never happen, trying to avoid communication and any emotional display.

In most of her looped works the artist concentrates the viewer's attention on those events that slip out of the ordinary and rule-regulated course of life, akward situations and moments od discord, instability and tension.
