About

Swedish artist Johanna Billing makes atmospheric video installations that draw the viewer in. Walking through the transformed spaces of both the Tall and Upper galleries at the MAC, this exhibition invites audiences to experience Billing's subtle and emotive videos that focus on human interaction. Johanna Billing's videos deftly weave together music, movement and rhythm and place subtle emphasis on individual performance and representations of changing societies. Born in Jönköping, Sweden in 1973, Johanna has been making video works since 1999 that deal with the notion of performance and the possibility it holds to explore issues of the public and the private. The participants in Johanna's videos all play themselves but take part in staged situations that oscillate between documentary and fiction, as a multi-layered interpretation of a place. Billing's films often involve music, which in her hands becomes a tool for communication, memory and reconstruction. This exhibition will present a series of her recent work alongside a new film I'm gonna live anyhow until I die, 2012 — a MAC co-commission with the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy which will receive its first screening at the MAC.
