You Make Me Want To Die In The Country Side: A meditation on Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Liv Bugge
Torpedo Press
Artists' Books
11 × 17 × 1.5 cm

Initially published as a three-part series in Blackwood’s Magazine during 1899 before its combined publication in 1902, Heart of Darkness tells the story of Marlow, an Englishman, who accepts a foreign assignment from a Belgian trading company as captain of a ferry-boat in Africa.

Liv Bugge’s practice incorporates a range of different mediums, in which video often plays an important part. Many of her works are situated in the borderland between dreams and reality, perpetrator and victim, science and fiction. The work often enters into different power relations, and Bugge is interested in aggression as both a constructive and destructive force in society. During the past few years, she has been working with post-colonial issues, in particular how the colonial system is explained and how one relates to brutalities carried out in another place in space and time.
