Avstyckningen
Ultra HD Video, 2020
5:56 min, stereo sound

Avstyckningen, Eng. translation the severing (i.e land severance). Taking the camera for a walk through familiar woods, we suddenly encounter a hand-painted sign reading Private. The film turns its focus to border markers that confine our view of the landscape. An organ chorus lingers.

In the making of the video I revisited an area where my parents have made land lots for second homes and made music using midi.
