när du söker skydd

i en plats

full av hot

" Love when you seek shelter in a place full of threat"

The personal shift between dreams, hope, longing and reality is captured in a personal “love curve” sketched as a seismic wave in Shiva Anoshirvani’s piece Kärlek, När du söker skydd I en plats full av hot. The “love curve,” is a set of rhythmic markings, reflecting the timeline from her birth until present day. Here memory is condensed into abstract lines, which we view as a reading of earthly eruptions. Are these peaks of elastic shock waves moments of joy or sadness, passion or grief? Shiva does not expose what they are but visually we can feel the physical impacts through the reading of the seismic wave.
