Conversation with Karin (2014)

Concept, lyrics, music, performer: Karin Sandberg

Medium: video, looped, 8.22minutes

In the work Conversation with Karin I am challenging the self, as a subject, through a written dialogue in music where I sing a song to and for myself. Through the narrative of a song and the voice using moments of harmony and the collapsing of connectivity, I instigate a dialogue of constant self reflection and self-criticism. Regardless of gender and personal history in the end a person has to deal with self and what forms us internally and externally. A self that forms identity but also constantly changes through different mental states, society and time. If I write a song to myself will I really listen?
