BLOD, BLOD(y), BLOD – an exposition of recurring processes, trails and building blocks of the film and research project BLOD through the lens of its methods; its manifesto.
The research is actively trying to create a feminine gaze
– cyclic, spiraling, ‘rhizomatic’, kaleidoscopic, layered –
in states of FEMMES:
Breaching one’s FOLD by grabbing its bottom, turning inside out.
Continuously returning to Daddy Lacan’s claim; again (encore) is the world’s most EROTIC word. In Swedish: igen och igen.
Affording MONSTERS shocking light of day – unleashing inner creative beasts.
Attempting to rewire and relearn – repetition as the MOMMY of learning.
Listening to ECHOES of (feminine) experience reverberating through time and space.
Obsessively picking at SCARS of life and story.
BLOD is a site for research on transboundary content, collaboration and aesthetics in cinematic storytelling.
Storytelling - weaving, multiplicity, intersecting storylines, reflexive, pulsating, spiral progression, revisiting...
Content – blood, sex, birth and rebirth, loss and death, recurring states, visceral identification, physical commonality...
Aesthetics – repetitive, recycling, returning, folding back on itself...
Collaboration - replacing, transgressing, rehearsing, noncompromising, diversifying...
Cinematic – Image as reinterpretation. Moving image as restructuring of past and present. Combination of image and sound – sites, words and actions – as reframing and reconstruction of perceived reality and events...
This practice based research makes its outcomes reproducible via the mediums of its artistic practice - making the process of creating visible as stories in the films themselves, making the connections and interactions of the research's building blocks; ideas, places, materials, people, time, experiences, technologies; felt through the design of the exposition.
