//…In her IASPIS studio Ylva Westerlund is showing videos and drawings under the heading Non Serviam. Focusing on the voice and how it sometimes escapes notions of gender and body, in one of her works Ylva Westerlund has found her point of departure in the style of singing known as ”growl”. In a filmed interview Angela Gossow, lead singer of band Arch Enemy, explains the physiological parameters of growl technique. The installation also includes an interview with Cristine Sarrimo, who is a professor in literature at Malmö University, dealing with how accusations and confessions are manifested in a post-religious legal system.
Video titles; "The technique of Growl", 2008, "Post-religious confessions", 2008, "Downward Pentagram", 2008
Landings Project Space proudly presents Tuez le flic en vous, a collaboration by Ylva Westerlund and Beata Fransson. The exhibition is a revision of Om den värld som vecklar ut sig när A vill ha något av B, shown earlier this year at Konsthall C in Stockholm.
”Tuez le flic en vous” –kill the pig inside – appeared as a slogan on walls all over Paris during the student protests of 1968. This demand was in keeping with Michel Foucault’s writings in Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison. This book is the point of origin for Tuez le flic en vous, which explores a society of surveillance and the policing of its citizens. The operating theater at the University of Uppsala and the forests surrounding the Försvarets Radioanstalt becomes the backdrop for a game with a revolving cast of characters.
Beata Fransson was born in 1977 and holds and MFA from Malmö Art Academy. Previous exhibitions include Göteborgs konsthall, The Hasselblad Center, and Rooseum. She lives and works in Stockholm. Ylva Westerlund was born in 1975 and holds an MFA from Malmö Art Academy. Previous exhibitions include IASPIS and Bonniers Konsthall. She lives and works in Stockholm and Malmö.
