Fyra dimensioner av ett träsk
Christine Ödlund / Irrlicht, 2023
12" vinyl

Fyra dimensioner av ett träsk by Swedish artist Christine Ödlund is an audio companion piece to her 2023 exhibition in Stockholm and a submersion into the swamp as a zone of transition. Combining field and hydrophone recordings with autoharp, shruti box, voice and synthesizer, Ödlund attempts to capture the elusive and otherworldly swamp – conjuring forth the fourth dimension through sound – where decomposition is spelled liberation and decay sows the seeds of new life.

12" vinyl in a handmade box set with foil engraving. Produced in collaboration with CFHILL.

Fyra dimensioner av ett träsk, released on the 16th of November, 2023 in an edition of 100 signed and hand numbered copies.

Press text

Western thought has long claimed exceptional status for humankind. The term "animale rationale" goes back to Aristotle: an animal endowed with reasoning and abstract thinking, often considered key features of language. Today we know that non-human animals have their own languages, only different than ours.

‘In the Pupil of the Panther’ reflects on the relationship between humans and animals, departing from an enhanced consciousness of the acute stress that human lifestyles inflict on the habitats of all individuals. The exhibition contains work by seven artists who, like Rilke, portray animals as subjects with thoughts and feelings.

The exhibition may also be seen as a commentary on the era we have been living in since the onset of industrialism around the turn of the nineteenth century, often named ’Anthropocene’ after humankind itself and characterised by our collective impact on the Earth and the ecological, climatic and geological changes it has brought.

We need better knowledge about the living conditions of all beings, humans as well as non-human, and the insights we have already gathered have must be turned into action. In the catalogue essay, the exhibition’s curator Magnus af Petersens brings forward early observations on this topic from prominent writers such as Rilke, Jacob von Uexküll and Axel Munthe.
