On This Day

On This Day revolves around two archives. One is the Beijing Silvermine, founded in 2007 by Thomas Sauvin which consists of 850,000 photographic negatives to date collected from recycling stations around the Beijing region of China and covering the years following the Cultural Revolution, from the introduction of the compact camera in 1985 to the introduction of digital photography in 2005. The other archive is the Euro-American database onthisday.com, which maintains a daily register of selected world events. The artists have paired the date-stamped images from China with events of that day from the database.

Excerpt from essay by Daniel Palmer in the book On This Day from 2021: “Every image suggests a story. But Sauvin never wanted to be the sole author of the archive, and constantly seeks new perspectives on it in collaboration with others. Swedish artists Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt are logical collaborators, given their publications have also sought to excavate complex layers of history and explore the gaps between what is visible and knowable. (…) By using the date stamped photographs to drive their investigation, one readymade archive driving the other, they force together two incommensurable sources of incomplete information about the world. ‘Two inadequate descriptive systems’, as Martha Rosler might say, the gap between them complicating the self-evidentiary claims of each other, revealing their obvious omission and biases.”

Wikiland 23 June 2017 / Sunny 16 Rule

The third part of the project is set in 2017 when Swedish Prosecutor Marianne Ny dropped the investigation into rape and applied to revoke the European arrest warrant. On Swedish Midsummer, 23 June 2017, the brightest day of the year, Källström-Fäldt, again among few invited photographers, visited Assange in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, equipped with analogue medium format cameras and a few rolls of film. In accordance with the Sunny 16 Rule which is a method in photography of estimating correct daylight without a light meter, they took ten portraits of Assange. However, as the light conditions in the room were so poor, the portraits turned out to be completely dark. The last frame was used with a flash and the resulting image only revealed Assange’s silhouette. Once again, his portrait remains elusive.

The Last of the Lucky / You Can't Always Get What You Want

In the spring of 2014, Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt travelled from the US to Cuba in the spirit of visiting the country before it would change. They had brought along analogue camera film that they feared was damaged by the x-rays of the security controls, so they went searching for new film. In the streets of Havana, they accidentally ran into one of Fidel Castro’s former private photographers. He took them to a camera shop, where despite the general lack of photographic equipment in the city, there were three rolls of film bearing the inscription “Lucky”. The salesman handed over the rolls and said: “These are the last rolls of Cuba.”. The expiry date on the unexposed “Lucky”-rolls was marked to 1994. They were sent to Cuba from the Soviet Union as part of the former Soviet-Cuba trade agreements that subsequently ended in the 1990s. (...)

25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners

In 25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners, Källström-Fäldt follow up on the media depiction of the Greek crisis. The vantage point is a fake news story published by a number of major European news outlets. The headlines exclaimed that the Evangelismos Hospital in Athens had 45 employed gardeners but no garden, and this came to be a perfect metaphor for a stereotype of Greek wastefulness, one of the presumed reasons behind the Greek economic crisis. The truth of the matter was that the hospital indeed had no garden, but neither did it have any gardeners. Upon closer inspection, it did however have 25 lemon trees.(...)

Who is Salt?

Similarly to the film The Fifth Estate, the movie Who Is Salt? also deals with the notion of the Military-Entertainment Complex. A collaboration between Hollywood and the Pentagon was revealed through email conversations found on IMDb and in the Sony Pictures hack of 2014 where the US State Department proposes a movie which would help stear public opinion and political narrative in favor of the US.

The movie Salt 2 is an example of this co-operation, and the conversations reveal that Angelina Jolie had allegedly long been dreaming of playing Martin Scorsese's Cleopatra and would be offered the role if she agreed to play Evelyn Salt, a CIA operative accused of being a Russian sleeper agent, once again. This is a moment of documentary photography where Källström-Fäldt have kept track of the the conversations that took place, and the rumors that flourished.

Village

Village was created during an Artist-in-Residency that Källström-Fäldt were invited to in Quebec City in Canada. Together with a research group based in Quebec, they adopted an equal parts photographic and linguistic perspective to search for displaced cultures in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, areas which, like other places with a colonial past, bear their cultural blind spots visible in language. Källström-Fäldt followed the names of places in search of a forgotten history. With one foot in the history of photography and references to Robert Frank's The Americans, they spent three months in a car, photographing specific sites and pairing them with their indigenous names, rather than their current names. They used the photographic caption as an artistic method. The indigenous names of the places they visited were translated into French and English which are the current official languages of Canada. In the composition of image and caption, Källström-Fäldt searched for the conflict that arises when text and photography resist describing each other. Instead, something else emerged; an image beyond the immediately visible.
