Scenografi

Annika Larsson, Samuel Nyholm and Nazareno Crea, London Release
»Scenografi«, 2008, b/w, 65 min The film, shot in Berlin, partly on
16mm, follows the construction of a set design in wood, inspired by
the typical kind of rudimentary cartoons you find in the marigin of
newspapers or cross word magazines. Along with the construction and
deconstruction, the Scenografi of wood becomes an arena for
performances, dinners, friendly meetings, arguments, tears, nudity and
general decadence, including interference from invited and uninvited
guests such as: Tobias Bernstrup, Saralunden, SNOWP, Körner Union,
Michael Portnoy and the Sect of Wood.

The book, and the poster, made together with Nazareno Crea, consists
of outtakes from the film, transcripts of dialogue and documentation
of the process. In total 162 pages b/w offset, hand binded with
analogue interventions. It’s published by New Print International
Publisher in collaboration with Nieves Books (CH)
http://www.nieves.ch/catalogue/scenografi.html

The book and a screenprinted poster can be purchased for a special
price during the the release.

The film will be shown the whole evening.

lies in rules, control and suggestion. Her films, often repetitive and
with a slowed down tempo, has a strong focus on gestures and the gaze.

Samuel Nyholm is an artist and illustrator. He works with the design
group Reala in Stockholm, the New Print International Publishing in
London and as graphic design teacher at ECAL in Lausanne.
