We´ve Met Before, 2007
Video, duration: 7 min. 2007
We’ve met before is a 7 min long video loop where a story is being narrated. This story is based on an interview with a couple talking about their relationship. A voiceover (the interviewer) recalls this meeting between the three of them, and describes the scene where the meeting took place. The visuals are fragmented and at times abstract, and the images and the voiceover are not telling the same story, but are shifting in time, place and character, which create a tension between fiction and reality.

Excerpts from the video We’ve met before
She told me they’d met before, but she couldn’t remember him. Later, after they became a couple – she managed to reconstruct the image of their first meeting.
He told me he wasn’t looking for a partner, but was interested in ”non-gender specific people”, and he felt very comfortable in her company.
They went out for coffee, a piece of information they both agree on, and talked about the danger of being 27 years old, how many famous people who’d died at that age, and she’d managed to survive.
We now see them in the hotel room; she looks at him smiling. He looks down when she touches his left thigh.
