Artist: Asa Riton & Andreas Emenius
Synopsis: Shot in Copenhagen, the video captures a chance meeting between a boy and a girl, set in an uncanny supermarket amongst washing powder, peanut butter and Dolphin cereals. A destructive love story between a girl and her prey, involving a text message gone wrong, naked shoppers, eggs and raining money.
Bio: Asa’s aim in life is to merge art and film. Her visual language is experimental and unique, pushing the boundaries of the conventional, bringing it into a world of her own. Her second aim in life is world domination of course.
Asa comes from a strong artistic background, with degrees from both Central St Martins and The Danish Film School. Her work has been shown at the Gothenburg International Film Festival, Helsinki Short Film Festival, Kulturhuset Stockholm and The London Institute of Contemporary Arts.
When she’s not filming David Lynch, The Knife or Henrik Vibskov, Asa directs commercials, music videos and documentaries.
Andreas is a Swedish artist, based in Copenhagen. He creates semi-figurative paintings, drawings and hulking figures in plaster, wood and iron, as well as suggestive videos that are often composed of installations and live performances.
He has been apart of collaborations with Swedish and Danish musicians, singers and dancers, and is also a founding member of the ongoing collaboration Vibskov & Emenius (vibskovemenius.com) with Danish designer Henrik Vibskov. This collaboration has so far resulted in ‘The Fringe Projects’ and ‘The Circular Series’ – fifteen works in form of installations, objects, performances, video and self-portraits, that have been presented internationally since 2007.
Graduating from Central Saint Martins in 1999, he has had solo shows at Schunck Museum, Holland, Galleri Bon and Jonas Kleerup Gallery, Stockholm and WAS Gallery in Copenhagen since then. Furthermore, he has participated in group shows at Vegas Gallery in London, The Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles, Gwangju Biennale in South Korea and Curitiba Biennale in Brazil, amongst others.
