Filip Haglund

Vacuum (2023)


Filip Haglund’s interdisciplinary art practice investigates power relations, mental illness, loss and identity. It sits at the intersection of video, cinema, performance and fine art. His research has focused on the concept of time-consciousness and how perceptions of reality are altered in states of psychosis. Haglund is interested in how the medium of video can support, discuss and represent the narrative of psychosis, and, more widely, how it can influence the way mental illness is understood in society. Haglund is currently finishing a work that looks at radical empathy and androgyny, exploring the origins of bias and how social heritage has created a code of experiences and views that seems to remain unquestioned and inherited. Vacuum looks at the concerns of mental illness and loss through the high and lows of a young couple.
