Exit:Alaska

2003
2 channel video installation, 4.32 min


In the Video Installation Exit: Alaska Hanna Ljungh has used the script from the movie
'Five Easy Pieces' (1970). One scene from the film is that of two women hitch hiking in the
USA to reach Alaska.Hanna has together with a friend reconstructed the scene by doing a
similar trip in her native country Swedenwhere they use the film script in conversation with
the people they get a ride from.The sound is used together with a filmed sugar landscape
and a monitor with the text.

The installation is bound together by a white carpet that slowly gets dirtier by every visitor
that enters into the room. Exit: Alaska is an attempt to deconstruct an image. In the installation
layers of fictional and real information are made to strive in different directions and clash with
each other. The installation is a playwith the inherent contradictions in an action. Where the filth
of the everyday and the awkward attempt is put in the same room as the grand visions of stark
white horizons.
