The work approaches the feeling of searching in a particular sense: searching for something that is already there (and does not need to be found).
The point of departure is the well-known Rosenhan experiment, in which eight sane individuals, ‘pseudo-patients’, feigned symptoms to be admitted to psychiatric institutions. As recently shown, the experiment itself was dogged by inconsistencies and anomalies – the pseudo-patients likely never existed in the first place. Through repetition and superimposition, the work explores the liminal space between thinking and perceiving, re-activating the gaps and contradictions that return to haunt a scientific material.
Dag Kewenter graduated with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts (MFA) at Malmö Art Academy in 2021. In 2022 he received a scholarship for artistic development from the City of Malmö.
