SUEDI (Slow Wave edit)
2017 - 2019

Single channel HD video, 08’ 53” 

SUEDI (Slow Wave edit) is a pair of music videos created in response to Erik Lundin’s Suedi, a popular Swedish rap song that has become an anthem for Afro-Swedish youth. 

Both videos show bodies in motion, either elevated or in close-up. In one video, two Swedish wrestlers are filmed sparring in a subtle choreography. In the second video, raw drone footage used by news outlets to depict the movement of asylum seekers across southern Europe is re-edited to highlight the biblical scale and historical precedence of this displacement. 

Camera: Marcus Harrling
Music: Erik Lundin, Slow Wave (Susanna Jablonski & William Rickman)
