artist statement

through the video as a medium, jonna hägg works mainly with how a consensus around nature is established. how seemingly insignificant details can trigger feelings and questions that may be difficult to understand such as perception, existence, presence and time. her interest is in the culture in which we live and how we perceive our natural habitat; how its structures and logic has become more natural to the human than nature itself. in the moving images of a video, previously unknown artificially created and perceptively invisible aspects are revealed, and further feelings and new worlds are made visible. reality becomes the motive of a mimetic abstraction and she is trying to enter the essence of the constructions of nature that sometimes transcend into the supernatural.
