Blinka lilla stjärna där

blinka-lillla-stjarna14This video installation was showed for the first time in the spring 2000 at the exhibition Ramponera (damage), at Göteborgs stadsmuseum (Göteborg city museum) in Sweden.

To the left I sing the lullaby “Twinkle twinkle little star”. Every time I sing wrong I am reprimanded with a slap in the face and I have to start from the beginning again. To the right you see a cheering crowd in slow motion. The sound of me singing, and getting slapped is authentic. But the sound of the crowd is from the movie “Triumph of the will”.

This piece is a comment to each individuals longing for the famous 15 min of fame and, the mob’s need for a victim.
