Mathias Josefson

Mathias Josefson holds a degree in Fine Arts from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (SE) as well as a degree in Computer Science from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. His work spans digital and analog media, often with a focus on sound as part of spatial installations. To expand or stop time, repetition and different mythologies is central to his art. As a member of Fylkingen and active at EMS he has been working, during the past ten years, within the international scene of experimental music.

Holy Land

In 2000, Mathias Josefson visited the Holy Land USA in Waterbury, Connecticut (US) for the first time. The site was built in the 1950s as a miniature replica of Jerusalem. During the 1960s and 1970s, it received many visitors, but it was closed to the public in 1984 and has deteriorated since. Ten years later, in 2010, he returned to the site with a video camera. The video Holy Land was made especially for the Eternal Tour exhibition in Jerusalem. It combines visual material from Holy Land USA with authentic sounds from Jerusalem recorded in 2008.
