SfB is an imaginative journey through the spaces, the life and everyday world of this Scandinavian country, a way to experience beyond the power of words.

Artists Anders Weberg and Robert Willim have used fieldrecordings and material from various Swedish settings to form an audiovisual live performance.

The artwork will be surrealized as an affective exposé through live improvisation. Stereotypes of Sweden, like the Bergmanesque gloom, erotica and nature romanticism will be invoked in this imaginary journey through Sweden of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Anders Weberg & Robert Willim have an extensive experience in producing artworks. Their common works have been exhibited and screened worldwide in a large number of contexts.

Willim’s role as a researcher dealing with Swedish culture is an important ingredient giving SfB it’s specific character.

SAMLE from the premiere at re:new digital arts festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.
