Following the white rabbit

 

Following the white rabbit is a constellation consisting of two video works (Magical Mystery Tour and Dream Baby Dream), a series of photographs (Visiting series), and a number of sculptural works. 

Magical Mystery Tour is the main work of the exhibition and revolves around The Manson Family. The piece is a video collage based on a mix of own filmed material from the Los Angeles environs and documentary clips.
A primary interest is directed towards the young women who in the late 60’s followed Charles Manson in hope of an alternative way of life. The work approaches the psychological game that preceded the murders that some members of the group committed in 1969.

"Following the white rabbit" is a widely used phrase derived from Alice in Wonderland. Grace Slick who wrote Jefferson Airplanes hit song "White Rabbit" said that for her the expression had primarily to do with the urge to follow your curiosity. But she also wrote the song to point out the hypocrisy of the older generation who read Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland to their children and then were surprised when they started doing drugs in their teens.

Materials used in installation works includes wood sticks, textiles, plaster, plastic tubes, ink jet prints, mirror, foam rubber, cotton, cotton strings, rice, nylon stockings, metal clips, stearin, chains, feathers, etc.
