artist statement

kim richard adler mejdahl’s work culminates in various medias, but circulates around cinema, sound, music, and photography. often these elements blend together and end up as hybrid pieces. mejdahl’s work share a thematic base involving dissolving memory, trauma, and dream-like logics. characterised by a nighmarishly quality, they wish to create a visceral, emotional, and bodily response on the receiver. the artist make use of his own background and his own body, some cases even involving his own bodyfluids. but mejdahl’s goal is always to take a private, and personal point of departure in order to reveal the deep, intuitive, and intersubjectively relevant feelings of trauma which we all share.
