Around Video


Since a numbre of years, Maria Friberg had been exploring masculanity. She chose on purpose not to focus the subject of her camera on her own body, like many other women artists have been doing since the 70's and beyond. instead, in Somewhere Else, Maria Friberg intelligently projects supposedly femine traits on a group of men, thus underscoring the subjugation both genders face when deprived of the freedom to fully express their humanity. The works of Maria Friberg illustrate that the genre is fluid rather than fixed. Her powerful images are as much about the collapse of power structures as they are about individual freedom.
