Biblion

Saara Ekström

Running in three parallel images in black & white and colour, and complemented with an evocative soundtrack, Biblion is a poetic study on the medium of the book. A nocturnal mood leads way to a dreamlike world, where no reading is required and where books are dreaming of their own disappearance.

Saara Ekström works in film, photography, text and installation. Chronotopes where time and place densify, time that nurtures and erodes, the ambivalent desire to both remember and forget are at the core of her art. Ekström’s work has been shown extensively in various museums and festivals in Europe, the Americas and Asia. She received the Finnish media art prize AVEK-award in 2018 and the prizes of SW Finland in 2017, Finnish Art Society in 1995 and the Aboa prize in 1994. She has been the Helsinki Festival Artist in 2005 and was nominated for both Ars Fennica and Carnegie Art Award prizes in 2010.
