The Still Point Of the turning world
“The Still Point of the Turning World” is a video installation consisting of three parallel videos, synchronised to the same soundtrack, but projected onto separate elements in the gallery space. The work can be seen as a poetic-political collage. The images act as stations, it is not a concrete story but parallel realities that work simultaneously tangent to each other. The story is told alternating between the private sphere and the outside world.
Tone Myskja has a sculptural and musical approach to working with video and composes complex and compound videos and installations.
Her work exist between different artistic disciplines ; performing arts, music, visual arts and literature.
Thematically, much of her work relates to the complexity of language, identity and perception.
