Jannicke Låker (NO) / “Sketch for a Rape Scene” - 2003 - 8 min


“In my works I often use, together with humor, heavy subject matters as racism, sexual violation, power games between people etc, but common for all my videos is the intention to reveal the human behind the actions, often something intimate, private or banal –that’s the motive power behind the work. But as well as exposing the actors I also expose the director and her motive behind, and the actions in, the work.
The videos are based on simple scripts with an exact physical setting that builds the frames which allows me to improvise during the production.”
