Eija Riitta was born in 1954 in Liden, Sweden, and is "objectum-sexual." Since June 17, 1979, her name is Eija Riitta Berliner Mauer taking the name of her husband, the Berlin Wall. In animism all elements of nature are considered as alive and have souls. "Objectum-sexuality" is an extension of this belief. Eija's blog explains the situation perfectly – her attraction to rectangular parallel lines, constructions such as bridges, fences or the Berlin Wall.
The films of Lars Laumann incorporate codes of documentary, grappling with topics at the limits of fiction. This process of fictional documentary recalls the practices some artists in the Kadist collection like Omer Fast, Joachim Koester, John Menick, Akram Zaatari, Arthur Zmijewski. In 2007, Matthew Higgs presented, at White Columns Gallery (New York), Laumann's first film, "Morrissey Foretelling the Death of Diana" which claims that the Smiths album "Queen is Dead" produced in 1986, announces the death of Princess Diana in 1997 in Paris. Illustrated in a film montage, the narrator's discourse draws parallels between the surprising words belonging to pop culture and events that occurred years later. Lars Laumann's analysis takes as a starting point the iconic figure of Diana, and develops a "conspiracy theory" by claiming extraterrestrial involvement in those events, thus offering a vision of a world entirely controlled.
Lars Laumann was born in 1975 in Brønnøysund, Norway. He lives and works in Berlin.
