I don’t want to know what this thing is all about. 

A little trip that I do with the audience. Together we can perhaps figure out what’s between the lines and move on in small dances, a bunch of objects that animate themselves in companionship with me. It’s a little like talking about a book that we all read but really long ago and remember different things and now they are played again, in front of us but more inside and there is also a quite slow film. A film – like the piece – that’s there more like the television left on without sound. I like television sets that sit there without anyone looking. I imagine that that’s the time when the TV really enjoys itself, appreciating the images and sequences for what they are and not what they show. I have a friend whose name is Juan Dominguez. It’s a name with really nice flow and in the end we eat ice cream together without speaking too much. That’s so sweet, to enjoy something really good and in silence. If you wait for a while, it is possible to just show up. Mårten Spångberg
