Swedish artist Anna Odell invites us to a grim class reunion with a twist. What happens when old hierarchies and truths are questioned from an unexpected voice? Återträffen investigates how far, too far reality is. It traverses the border between fiction and reality with Odell playing the main character, using her own identity and life story to go into unspoken and invisible hierarchical structure. By processing the story in multiple layers, the complexity of power and exclusion is revealed and the dynamics of the group is exposed.
Anna Odell was born in 1973 and is educated at two of the most highly valued institutions in Sweden: the University College of Arts, Craft and Design and the Royal Institute of Art. Okänd, kvinna 2009-349701 (Unknown, Woman 2009-349701) was her final work of examination. It has been shown at various locations in Scandinavia and in Paris in May 2013. Återträffen is her debut feature.
