Lars Laumann film at The Whitechapel Gallery

A picture from Lars Laumann's film 'The Berlin Wall'

The Norwegian video-artist's film 'The Berlin Wall' will be presented at The Whitechapel Gallery in London from April until July, as part of Art in the Auditorium

In his films the Norwegian artist tells singular stories of obsessional fantasy and desire. The Berlin Wall, 2008, is a documentary of Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer, a Swedish woman who describes herself as ‘objectum-sexual, emotionally and sexually attracted to objects, things’. The film, which is 23 minutes 56 seconds long, follows her story as she narrates her ongoing relationship with the Berlin Wall. Laumann’s work will be presented alongside American filmmaker Aïda Ruilova. 

Art in the Auditorium is a collaborative project organised by the Whitechapel Gallery with institutions from Europe, Asia, South America and the US to provide a showcase for the work of some of the most exciting young artists working with film, video and animation today. Lars Laumann was selected by Henie Onstad Art Centre, Norway. His work has previously been shown in the US, South America and Europe.

Laumann’s was born in Brønnøysund in Norway in 1975. He studied at the Nordland Art and Film School in the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway, and the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
