Cecilia Lundqvist – Area of Use (Sweden 2009, 05:12 mins)



Unfortunately this video is not available on the Impakt Channel.

The video Area of Use is an illustration of a housewife’s inner thoughts about alternative ways of using her most common working tools. It is also a manifestation of a sealed existence that exposes a mind which gives a sense of being trapped in a treadmill. This work is closely related to the video Oh, I’m So Happy.


Cecilia Lundqvist is a Swedish artist specializing in animation and since 1994 working almost exclusively with videos, which have been screened at numerous museums, galleries and festivals worldwide. Over 30 videoworks have been created between 1994 and 2012, works that generally are narrative and deal with issues like domestic violence, power structures and human behaviours. Represented with videoworks at several art institutions, among them Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
