Adventure Ahead is new project which is derived from footage from the Media Archive of Central England in Lincoln (macearchive.org) which holds a huge array of films from amateur and broadcast sources. The work takes footage from a number of sources, including Children Rule 2080 – a science-fiction film made in 1980 featuring children in a dystopian future world. Creating a time-warp of propositional projection from and reflection on this key era in social history, the project takes the form of a film installation in a temporary venue in Lincoln city centre. Selected previous works by Annika Eriksson can be seen at Project Space Plus.
Annika Eriksson is a Swedish artist living in Berlin. Her work is often concerned with loops of time and hallucinations of unrealised futures, considering the future from the present, in relation to the past or vice versa, and interweaving different time zones. Over the years, Eriksson has produced a large number of works in which the perception of time, structures of power, and social visions are called into question.
