Trees and rocks are shaped by the winds. Artists bring small bags of black pepper and leave small piles of beautiful stones behind. I try to blend into the landscape but I can’t help leaving traces. So did everyone before me, soldiers and seals and rabbits and birds.
Camouflage consists of playful and meditative performances for the camera, in which I hide my body and different objects in the landscape and the frame. The video was filmed during an artist residency on Örö island, inspired by the island’s nature and military past as well as daily rituals and preparations – what to bring, how to move, blend into and be shaped by the new environment.
