Anna Berndtson Live Performance 9th of November 2019 14:00 – 20:00 in HAU2.
In her long duration performance, the Swedish artist Anna Berndtson deals with her personal boundaries. Infinitely slow she moves through a landscape of tennis balls, clearing her way using her white cane. “Borg” is an exploration into space and the ability of movement in space, incentivised by Berndtson’s own visual impairment. It also deals with the “collective trauma” and the pressure on many Swedish children in the 1970s and 80s to become the next Björn Borg.
Anna Berndtson born in Sweden, lives and works in Malmö and Berlin. “Borg” was a turning point in her artistic work. For the first time, the picture became more important than the action. It also was the first time her disability was the focus of her work.
