Abstract [en]

This collaborative sound-video art project ‘Nostalgica Utopica Futura’ (inspired by Italian minimalist musical composer Luigi Nono) has one of the narratives of inspiration in historical, utopic ideal society built up in 1895 on an island called Norrbyskär, located at the coast close to Umeå. The island was totally (re)constructed, probably inspired by contemporary ideas about utopic societies, like the Morris novel, where the workers were ‘taken care of ’ in all social aspects. The children in the video, Ivan Morén and Linnea Thors are ancestors of a family who lived at Norrbyskär during this period. Film production took place in the family house, called the Tailor House, where tales of the family were mixed with contemporary tales, to a gothic story of the drowned children (the script were written in collaboration with the children). The image style was influenced by the Nordic fine de siècle New Romanticism, with Swedish artist like Carl Larssons ‘A day of celebration’ and Axel Fridells ‘Mr Simmons’ or the ‘The dying dandy’ by Nils von Dardel. Sound was composed by J.M. Holmberg.
