To master the moment of silence, the pause of thrilling suspense, is what makes a great storyteller captivate an audience. The artists invited for the exhibition In Moment are known for their innovative approach towards narrative structures and have all produced new works for the show.

All works make use of slides, transparencies, in various ways. The slide represents an antiquated technique as the importance of the digital image is expanding. However the specificity of the medium provides a unique tool for story telling where the succession of sequences becomes a natural edit of the narration in the slide show.

Pierre Bismuths work Coming Soon is commenting on the teaser for upcoming movies; Gabriel Lesters work Prelude to the death of a murderer uses screen images from the television for his story; Johan Thurfjells double projection Leaving portrays the last hours in the life of a woman that has decided to take her own life told from two different perspectives; and Clemens von Wedemeyer tells a story in a Beckettesque way about two persons that talk to each other but seem to have forgotten how to listen to each another in A Divided Monologue.

A conversation between Johan Thurfjell, Power Ekroth and Anna-Lena Lundmark (Artist, Director of Culture, Skellefteå Municipality) will take place on September 7th at the Konsthall 7 p.m.

The exhibition In Moment is generously supported by Skellefteå Municipality, Office of Culture, Skellefteå Konsthall.

The exhibition is a part of the experimental exhibition format of Access developed by curators Power Ekroth and Veronica Wiman in collaboration with the graphic designers Research & Development.
