Screening (Portuguese with English subtitles) / Conversation in English

The Swiss-Brazilian artist Guerreiro do Divino Amor has been developing Superfictions (Superficções) since 2005, a project that analyzes the evolution of metropolitan regions and nations. From this series, the current Visual Arts Fellow of the Artists-in-Berlin Program will show four videos that critically and ironically address the social, political, economic, religious, moral and cultural influences on Brazil’s identity.

In conversation with the author and cultural theorist Ana Teixeira Pinto, Guerreiro do Divino Amor negotiates how imperialist ideologies and a Euro- and ethnocentrism are influenced by capitalist companies and cultural institutions.

Slot 2: Stine Janvin, performance, 9 pm

“Sammen Inn I Det (Together into it)”

Performance: Stine Janvin

Costume: Ramona Salo

Video: “Dismissal” by Stine Janvin and Morten Joh (commissioned by Rokolectiv 2020)

Attempting to capitalise on her own identity, Stine Janvin stages a communion where the audience is offered to consume a piece of her.

Through this intimate ritual which combines a live performance and a video piece, she points at today’s focus on idolising individuals, how we are all encouraged to find our own brand in order to succeed and the paradox of  “being oneself” while constantly feeding our followers. By sharing our stories through digital platforms, we are controlling the content and supposedly owning our narratives, but we do not own the format, which is usually two dimensional and square. And we all know that our personal data is used for commercial purposes. So who does our narratives really belong to?

Appearing like a folkloric priest, Janvin makes a comparison between religion and social media while also telling the story of how the traditional Norwegian tonality was suppressed by the christianisation and the equally tempered church organ in the 1800s. While handing out edible logos, she continuously chants a song based on an archive recording of a Norwegian mealtime blessing by Odd Mehus, Per Vetrhus and Andreas Lunde, sung in a style particular to “liksong” which translates to “corpse song” and was traditionally performed in funerals. In the group of three men singing in the recording, there is one lead singer, and the others follow, often with a latency effect called “tviljoa” meaning two or more tones at the same time.

With the intention of creating this effect, the audience is invited to sing along to the song with new text written by Janvin.

Når du den sakte vei mot friheten går / Jeg går med deg / La deg bære av de som bære kan / Og la deg forføre med inn / All din skam / Vil bli igjen / All din tvil og redsel forgår / Vi bærer deg hen / Som tomme skall / Går vi sammen inn i det

English translation: When you the slow path towards freedom walk / I will walk with you / Let yourself be carried by those who carry can / And let yourself seduct into it / All your shame / Will stay behind / All your doubts and fears dissapear / We carry you in / As empty shells / We go into it together
