Ulf Lundin's video '5-9' will be on display at @clarionstockholm from tomorrow September 21 (opening 6-8 pm!) until January 17. The work was first presented at his solo exhibition in the gallery 2013.
In the video we follow the everyday activities in a office building in the Stockholm area. It is shot in secret from a distance during dark hours. Lundin has gathered material for several weeks and it has been edited digitally so that the result is a 27 minutes long continuous dolly shot. Things that happen simultaneously in the video could actually be moments of entirely separate occasions with months apart. The result is a condensed reality where time and space has been manipulated. Lundin is not particularly interested in the office workers that are portrayed in 5–9, they rather represent all of us and our gaze is turned towards ourselves. How do we choose to live our lives?
